The Parable of the soils

November 22, 2015 Speaker: John Bell Series: The Parables of Jesus

Passage: Mark 4:1–4:20

“The Parable of the Soils”

Mark 4:1-20

Point # 1 Like the sower, God spreads his word widely among all kinds of people.

Point # 2 Like the three kinds of unfruitful soil, many will respond to the word with less than saving faith, be it . . .

· a complete lack of response due to the enticement of evil

· temporary superficiality masquerading as true commitment

· genuine interest and conviction about the truth that simply falls short due to the rigorous demands of discipleship

Point # 3 Like the fruitful soil, the only legitimate response to God's word is obedience and perseverance, which demonstrate true saving grace.
