This message was given by Ron Kangas to young adults in Anaheim on January 14, 2009. In this message entitled “Having a Heart Without Thorns,” brother Ron expounds on the different categories of thorns, and describes how the Lord deals with them in our heart.
The parable of the sower reveals that God’s economy is carried out by the Triune God as a man, the Lord Jesus, sowing Himself as the word into our heart. In each account as recorded in Matthew, Mark and Luke, thorns are mentioned. These thorns signify the anxiety of the age, the deceitfulness of riches, and the pleasures of this life, all of which utterly choke the word, preventing it from growing in our heart and bearing fruit.
