“And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the Word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirty, some sixty, and some an hundredfold.” ~ Mark 4:20
Did you know it’s possible for you to be a hundredfold receiver from God’s Word? It must be because of what we see Jesus said about it. He said that some will bring forth a hundredfold. Now don’t get the idea that it’s God who determines who brings forth thirty, sixty, or one hundredfold.. It’s us who determine how much the Word produces in our life. So how do we get hundredfold results?
In this parable in Mark chapter four Jesus mentioned five things that will choke out the effectiveness of God’s Word in our lives. Affliction, persecution, cares of this life, deceitfulness of riches, and the lust of other things. When we allow these things to enter into our heart they stop the Word from producing results for us. I suggest you do a study on each one of them and allow the Lord to give you revelation about them.
So it’s up to us whether we’re a thirty, sixty, or a hundredfold believer. However much of these five things we allow in our heart will determine the size of our harvest from the Word. If we stand against these things 100 percent of the time we’ll be a hundredfold receiver from the Word of God. If 60 percent then sixty fold, if 30 percent then thirty fold. Our goal is a hundredfold and it must be possible because Jesus said it was!
