20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;
21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.
Verse 20 To 21 Meaning
In these two verses, Jesus is explaining about the person who hears about the word of God. These people are all excited and are ready to learn more. They are enthusiastic, happy and dive into Christianity head over heals.
Unfortunately, as soon as there are doubts or people not agreeing with what they are doing. These people fall away from Christianity. This is because they are not entirely convinced or believing that the word of God can change there life.
Their faith is shallow. They will quickly drop back into there comfort zone of the world. Being a Christian means that a person needs to change their behavior and friends and many other things in their lives. Unfortunately, not many people are willing to do so.
Do you want to be one of these people and enter through the Wide Gate that leads to destruction?
If you are one of these people I urge you to read the bible and you will find eternal life.
