“Listen then to what the parable of the sower means: (Matthew 13v18 NIV)

Listening is the key.

Having ears to hear.

It is about having an understanding of Him.

He will happily explain things.

Give you insight.

Reveal deep truths hidden in the scriptures.

The Holy Spirit is the only one who can give you reliable revelation of the scriptures.

You only see it from your perspective.

That can be very superficial.

Familiarity can also be a hinderance.

What you have been taught in the past can be a stumbling block.

You have to decide for yourself what you believe.

Not based on what someone else has told you or believed.

Take responsibility for hearing for yourself.

Learn to listen by training yourself to hear.
