No Seriously, How is Your Heart?
Passage: Luke 8:4–8:15
What do we make of the mixed responses to Jesus’ ministry?
Understand three causes of hearing loss (fruitlessness):
- Path: Philosophies of this present evil age.
- Rocky soil: Suffering.
- Thorny soil: Pleasure.
Understand three implications for evangelists (sowers):
In light of mixed results…
- We must not tamper with God’s word.
- We must trust the sovereignty of God.
- We must cast the seed everywhere.
Is the Gospel tilling up the soil of your heart making it evermore fruitful or are you hard of hearing?
