You see the third one received Christ, the seed took root, grew into a tree, and was even producing fruit!
However, other things grew up around it and began to choke it out until it died and stopped producing.

Let this sink in and never allow anything to choke out your connection to the root from which you draw your grace and thus cut off the fruitfulness of your faith. No compromise. No complacency.
