The Field of Thorns
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2019
Posted by: Ebenezer Free Presbyterian Church | more..
Mark 4:19, “And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.”

The Lord says, “the thorns...choke the word” (Matthew 13:22). What some of these thorns are He here describes. Cares, covetousness and corrupt desires exert a detrimental effect upon our hearts. The Lord says to us, “Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns” (Jeremiah 4:3). God is saying it is pointless to bring the word there. Through the power of these thorns the word’s good effects are destroyed. Reading and hearing God’s word become merely an exercise that brings little lasting benefits. It is a fearful thing, therefore, we must daily seek God’s grace, that He would enable us to tear up the thorns in our hearts and to cry that His word would run freely and unhindered within us. The danger is that the thorns become so many that we do not even trouble ourselves about them anymore. The field of thorns can become so thick that we don’t even care about “the word” anymore.

“Worldly cares are great hindrances to our profiting by the word of God, and our proficiency in religion. They eat up that vigour of soul which should be spent in divine things; divert us from duty, distract us in duty, and do us most mischief of all afterwards; quenching the sparks of good affections, and bursting the cords of good resolutions; those who are careful and cumbered about many things, commonly neglect the one thing needful” (Matthew Henry).

Poverty of Spirit
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2019
Posted by: Ebenezer Free Presbyterian Church | more..
Matthew 5:3, “Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Afflictions and troubles should be sufficient to keep God’s people “poor in spirit.” Indeed that is one reason why God allows them to press...

A Place for the Lord
MONDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2019
Posted by: Ebenezer Free Presbyterian Church | more..
