Message from our vicar
Dearly beloved in Christ

But those that were sown on the good soil are the ones who hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold."(Mark 4:20)

Dearly beloved, we are privileged to hear Gods word freely. This great privilege is also a great responsibility. If we respond to the word of God positively and obediently our lives will be illuminated by the true Light. Let us bring the light of Jesus into the lives of people around us.

The parable of the sower is also called the parable of the soils. We can see this parable in the three synoptic gospels. It tells the story of a sower who scattered seeds on four different types of soils. The way side, the rocky ground, among the thorns and the good soil. Jesus himself explained the parable to his disciples .The seed is God’s word. The various soils represent different kinds of hearts. The varied results show the different responses to the word of God. Like the seed, the word of God is living, active and able to produce spiritual fruit. ‘The way side’ shows hard hearted people who resist the word of God. Careless hearing of the word of God will not give good result. “Keep your heart with all vigilance, from it flow the springs of Life”(proverbs 4:23).

Hard hearts need to be ploughed up to receive the word. ‘The rocky ground’ represents the shallow hearts having no depth to the word of God. This represents the emotional hearers. They accept the word of God joyfully and enthusiastically but when difficulties come, their Joy and enthusiasm disappears. The soil among the thorns is the crowded heart that pictures the person who receives the word of God and does not truly repent and remove the ‘weeds’. The worldly pleasures and desires for riches choke the word. And finally, good soil pictures the heart of a true believer who hears the word of God and follow them. Jesus said, “Everyone who hears the word of mine and does them will be like
a wise man who built his house on rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and doesn't do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand." (Matt. 7: 24-26) Both men built houses that looked good and sturdy. When storm came one of the houses collapsed. He belonged to one of the first three categories of hearers.

Once again we are closer to the season of great lent. This is a time set apart for prayer, fasting and meditations. We remember the passion and the death of Jesus Christ on the cross, to deliver the whole humanity from sin and death.

May the observance of the lent help us to grow in the word of God and bear fruit.

With love and prayers,

Rev. Sajit Thomas John
Vicar.
