What Sort of Christian would you say you are?
The message as was deciphered by Jesus is the message of the realm – bits of insight about the rule of God, God’s arrangement, reason and salvation. In His understanding, Jesus distinguished four kinds of individuals.
The Impassive Christian
Jesus portrayed the seed that fell on the way as the individual who does not have the foggiest idea. Truly, this individual’s heart is hard to the point that he would rather not comprehend. There are many individuals who hear the word, yet do not get it. The Word should be joined leaning on an unshakable conviction for without confidence, the Word misses the mark on capacity to change lives. In chapel, certain individuals hear the Word, yet they do not find opportunity to grasp the Word. They are not open to the conviction of the Essence of God. We can solidify our own hearts and underestimate the Word. We can close out the evangelist and center our psyches somewhere else. We can close down the message since it is not managing what we need to hear. A few of us need to hear how God will favor us, yet we truly do not have any desire to hear serious areas of strength for a message that calls us to revolutionary teaching to genuine obligation to Jesus. We can undoubtedly become like the congregation at Laodicea in the book of Disclosure where Jesus was remaining outwardly, thumping to get in.
The Shallow Christian
Jesus depicted the rough spot as the individual who gets the word with euphoria, however when inconveniences, oppression and testing come, he rapidly falls away. These kinds of people show no steady responsibility but instead training helpful christianity. They are overwhelmed by emotionalism that is to say, they like a great deal of feel great messages and warm hearted encounters – singing, moving, yelling; on the off chance that these things are not occurring, they feel that the Soul of God is not moving. These encounters have esteem when they are provoked with a supernatural conviction and the main of the Soul.
The Common Christian
Jesus depicted this individual as one who hears the word; however stresses, avarice and joys keep him from really developing. Christians like these are fixated on cash: they are overwhelmed by the affection for cash. They struggle with making the stride of confidence to give and to give conciliatorily to God. In the event that God has your wallet, he will have your heart: God is Master where people commit their time, ability and fortune to Him, where individuals commit their whole resides to Him. Common Christians are continuously hoping to get something: they are the sort of Christians that come to chapel to see what they can get as opposed to see what they can give; their emphasis is on being honored instead of on being a gift.
