- Its NOT about DOING
- Its about HEARING first and continuous HEARING.
- Hearing Bring forth Fruit, not by Trying to do (not by Trying to be good / not by trying to do good things).
Amplified Bible (AMP)
12 Those along the traveled road are the people who have heard; then the devil comes and carries away the message out of their hearts, that they may not believe ([a]acknowledge Me as their Savior and devote themselves to Me) and be saved [here and hereafter].
13 And those upon the rock [are the people] who, when they hear [the Word], receive and welcome it with joy; but these have no root. They believe for a while, and in time of trialand temptation fall away (withdraw and stand aloof).
14 And as for what fell among the thorns, these are [the people] who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked and suffocated with the anxieties and cares and riches and pleasures of life, and their fruit does not ripen (come to maturity and perfection).
15 But as for that [seed] in the good soil, these are [the people] who, hearing the Word, hold it fast in a just ([b]noble, virtuous) and worthy heart, and steadily bring forth fruit with patience.
