By The Wayside
Luke 8:12 (KJV) Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.
The wayside, I hope you know that this refers to the edge of the beaten-down pathway. It is the common thoroughfare followed by spiritually lost and wayward hearts on this earth. Many, if not all, these folks have heard about God. However, this vital life-saving information about God did not travel the route from their head and nestle into the folds of their heart.
This failure for the truth to gravitate southward and welcomed to set in the core of their being indeed leaves such a soul in a lost spiritual state. This scripture collectively groups those souls who heard about salvation; however, these hearts failed to apply God’s truth into their lives because of numerous excuses and personal justifications. The seed of God then surreptitiously fell away, landing on the wayside. Or in other words, it fell away to the edge of the road and was left to blow away.
Sincere Christians do not let this analogy of the truth, not sticking to a lost soul, leave you down and out. Read the entire account of this parable in this chapter to better understand how God’s truth can and does change the spiritual state of willing souls.
