Modest dress please! How Well Do You Hear God’s Word? Elders of every church have the responsibility of sowing the seed of the kingdom. In the Parable of the Sower, Jesus spoke of the soil that the seed needed to grow. Jesus gave more than three dozen parables but this is the only one that is named (Matt. 13:18, “parable of the sower”). Jesus also said that if one does not understand this parable, he will not understand any parable (Mark 4:13). So this parable is the key to understanding all of Jesus’ parables. When the seed was sown, it fell on different soils. Jesus wants us to consider how we listen to God’s word: The Wayside This soil was hard soil. It had been compacted by feet & wagon wheels. This is the man who hears but does not understand. His heart has been hardened by the habits of life. Then Satan comes to take away the word that was sown into his heart. The Rocky Soil This is ground where the soil is thin and underneath is bedrock. Consequently, the soil is unable to retain much moisture. Any seed that germinates will wither when dry weather comes. This is the person who commits to Christianity but falls away when times get tough. The Thorny Soil This is soil which has seeds of thorns mixed with the good seed. When all seeds germinate, the thorns choke out the good seed. This is the person who begins his Christian walk well. But worries about life and money choke out his spirituality. The Good Soil This is ground that has been plowed and prepared. Then the seed grows to bring about the mature plant and fruit. This is the person who hears God’s word (Luke 8:11, “the seed”), understands it, lives it, & permits God’s word to rule his life. He bears fruit for the Kingdom of God (the church). What kind of soil are we? How well do we listen to God? Are we obedient? Are we bearing fruit for God? On judgment day, everyone will give an account for all of his actions. ~ Buddy Driver Congratulations To Bernice Stokes, great-grandmother, & parents Brad & Lori Stokes, on the birth of their new baby boy, James Porter Stokes, born May 16 th .

    How Well Do You Hear God’s Word?

    Elders of every church have the responsibility of sowing the seed of

    the kingdom. In the Parable of the Sower, Jesus spoke of the soil that

    the seed needed to grow.

    Jesus gave more than three dozen parables but this is the only one that

    is named (Matt. 13:18, “parable of the sower”). Jesus also said that if

    one does not understand this parable, he will not understand any

    parable (Mark 4:13). So this parable is the key to understanding all of

    Jesus’ parables.

    When the seed was sown, it fell on different soils. Jesus wants us to

    consider how we listen to God’s word:

    The Wayside This soil was hard soil. It had been compacted by feet & wagon

    wheels. This is the man who hears but does not understand. His

    heart has been hardened by the habits of life. Then Satan comes to

    take away the word that was sown into his heart.

    The Rocky Soil This is ground where the soil is thin and underneath is bedrock.

    Consequently, the soil is unable to retain much moisture. Any seed

    that germinates will wither when dry weather comes. This is the

    person who commits to Christianity but falls away when times get

    tough.

    The Thorny Soil This is soil which has seeds of thorns mixed with the good seed.

    When all seeds germinate, the thorns choke out the good seed. This is

    the person who begins his Christian walk well. But worries about life

    and money choke out his spirituality.

    The Good Soil This is ground that has been plowed and prepared. Then the seed

    grows to bring about the mature plant and fruit. This is the person

    who hears God’s word (Luke 8:11, “the seed”), understands it, lives

    it, & permits God’s word to rule his life. He bears fruit for the

    Kingdom of God (the church).

    What kind of soil are we?

    How well do we listen to God?

    Are we obedient?

    Are we bearing fruit for God?

    On judgment day, everyone will

    give an account for all of his actions. ~ Buddy Driver
