I am excited to announce another great book giveaway! I am giving away a copy of Receptivity: Tuning in to God’s Voice by Daniel K. Noris. As we just finished celebrating Pentecost, this is a perfect time to delve more deeply into how we can tap into the power of the Holy Spirit. Receptivity is all about hearing God’s voice more clearly in our busy and hectic lives. (We all have busy, hectic lives!)
The Parable of the Sower: Take a Look at Yourself
A sower went out to sow. 4 And as he sowed, some seeds fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured them. 5 Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they did not have much soil, and immediately they sprang up, since they had no depth of soil, 6 but when the sun rose they were scorched. And since they had no root, they withered away. 7 Other seeds fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them. 8 Other seeds fell on good soil and produced grain, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. 9 He who has ears, let him hear.” Matthew 13: 3-9 ESV
Receptivity was a pretty easy read for such a heavy subject. There are so many times that we want to hear from God, but we just don’t know how. This book takes a look at the parable of the seed and the sower. We often don’t hear from God because we don’t have fertile soil in our hearts! It is so easy to look at this parable Jesus told and say it is about reaching out to non-Christians. We cannot forget to examine our own hearts as well.
Favorite Quotes from Receptivity:
The disciples went to Jesus to have Him explain the parable to them. “Notice the setting in which they came to Jesus: in private. There are things that you will never hear from the Lord if you choose to remain content to simply receive everything from someone else.”
Another great quote, “The Lord has secrets. But He only whispers them. You have to live close enough to God that you can hear His gentle whispers.”
Here is something else we can all relate to. “The best of times can often be more dangerous to us than the worst of times. When the sailing is smooth, we get lax at the wheel. Tough times often cause us to instinctively call out to God. Good times cause us to slowly drift away.”
