Do God's Work and all Your Needs will be Met
The Parable of the Sower EmptyFri May 23, 2014 12:22 am by Camille
God always provides for our needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:19

As long as we are doing the work of the Lord God will always meet our needs. As long as we are pointing others to God, He will always see that you have plenty.

Do the work of the Lord share what you know from the bible and share your testimony of how you were healed or set free and God …

The Parable of the Sower Empty
PostSubject: The Parable of the Sower   The Parable of the Sower EmptyThu Feb 19, 2015 4:55 pm

Sow what? The Word of God! Sow when? All the time! Sow where? Everywhere…but hopefully on good ground!

This parable answers the question, “Why doesn’t everybody get saved?” As tremendous as salvation is, it’s a wonder that so many do not get saved.

Ill.—if you were Governor and you went to a prison and offered every single inmate a pardon, you’d expect every single inmate to accept the offer…so why do many turn down the Lord?

What is a parable, and why did Jesus teach in parables?

Parable = ‘to place alongside of’. It’s an illustration alongside a truth. It’s an earthly story with heavenly meaning. It’s a physical illustration of a spiritual concept. You see, we live in the physical, and don’t often exercise the spiritual part of us. So these illustrations help the light to come on in our understanding in our spirits.

So, why teach in parables? The disciples wondered the same thing…
v. 10.

v. 11-12 Jesus says there’s 2 reasons I teach in parables:

To reveal and to conceal.

To reveal truth to those who have accepted Him and to conceal truth from those who have rejected Him.

The principle applies to us today: if you respond positively to what light God has given you, then God will give you more light. But if you reject the light, you won’t get any more light. If you fail to step into the light shone before you, no more is offered. If you obey the truth you know, God will share more truth with you…but if you don’t, then why should God give you more?

There’s no skipping steps with God. You cannot bypass the process He has set for us.
Psalms 37:23





The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD…
Some people say they stopped growing in the Lord at a certain time. They were going forward, but then it seemed to plateau and level off. If I were you I’d go back to that time and see if there was a command you never have obeyed. You cannot circumvent that truth. The train stops here until we meet the requirements to go forward.

God does not reveal truth to us so that we may consider it, but that we might obey it. “Use it or lose it!”

Jesus came to His own in Israel and they rejected Him, so now he goes to the individuals, and uses parables to conceal the truth from those who don’t want to believe, and to reveal truth to those seeking more light.

Tonight we see 3 elements to this first parable: the sower, the seed, and the soil.

Notice that only 25% of the seed ends up being successful. 75% didn’t take. So, what’s the problem?

The seed? Is it the problem? No, v. 19-20 say the seed is the Word of God. It is inerrant, infallible, and inspired. Now granted, we don’t want to use a watered down Word…and many translations and paraphrases unfortunately do just that…but ultimately the God breathed Word of God is perfect, and so powerful that even well meaning but misguided interpreters cannot undo
