Luke 8 – Do You Want the Knowledge of the Secrets of the Kingdom of God?

Jesus explains that some have access to the knowledge of the secrets of this new Kingdom but many don’t have eyes to see or ears to hear. In other words, they do not have an open heart or an open mind.

We can have access to the secrets of the Kingdom of God as part of His family, those who hear God’s Word and put into practice!

Message Notes:

In Luke 8, Jesus continues his travels with his disciples which include several women who were financially supporting their efforts.

Jesus shares the parable of the soils which describes how some never choose to follow, some fall away when things get hard, some never mature because of the distractions of wealth, pleasure, and worries, but some actually become fruitful – they are transformed and they are bringing transformation to those around them.

When sharing this parable, Jesus explained that some have access to the knowledge of the secrets of this new Kingdom but many don’t have eyes to see or ears to hear. In other words, they do not have an open heart or an open mind. 

Maybe you are stuck when it comes to faith. You’ve struggled to believe, ask God to help you see Him and hear Him. Ask Him to help you believe.

Maybe you have fallen away in your faith because things got hard in life and you blame God for your circumstances instead of asking Him to help you through them. Turn back to Him. Confess that to Him and ask for His help with a new start.

Maybe you have not kept growing in your faith because you were distracted by your job, your kids, your relationships, or you were tempted into a more selfish way of living. Turn back to Him. Confess that to Him and ask for His help with a new start.

If you are like the good soil, then keep at it! There is no limit to what God can do in you and through you! You are experiencing life and freedom and bringing that eternal life and freedom to others!

This chapter is filled with some of the most remarkable miracles as Jesus calms a storm, heals a man with a legion of demons, heals a woman no doctor was able to help, and raises a young girl back to life! All of those show Jesus is the messiah, but all of those he healed eventually died. 

That’s why the greatest miracle is spiritual healing because that’s eternal!
