Transcript Transcript

One day, our Lord Jesus told a parable, a story with special meaning. He said, “A farmer went to plant seeds in his field. Some seeds fell on the path. They were stepped on and birds ate them. Some seeds fell on rocks. They started to grow, but soon wilted because there wasn’t enough water for them. Some seeds fell in weeds. Thorns grew on the weeds and killed the baby plants. Some seeds fell on good soil. They grew well and gave a big crop.”
Jesus’ disciples asked Him what the parable meant. He said, “The seed is God’s word. The places in the story where the seed fell are people who hear God’s words. The path in the parable is like people who hear God’s words, but the devil comes and takes the words away so the people do not obey God. The rocks are people who hear God’s words and are happy. But they only believe God for a little, and then stop. The thorny place is like people who hear God’s words but start thinking about stuff on earth instead of about God. But the good soil is the people who hear God’s words and obey them.”

"Thank you very much for your broadcasts. Ancient Faith Radio is a great blessing and doing a great work. I myself have been listening to it nearly every day since connecting to the internet about a year ago. It has been a great help to me spiritually. Though I was an Anglican, I had been very interested in Orthodoxy for many years. Last year I was happily received into the Orthodox Church after an English-speaking parish started in our town."
