The Parable of the Soils
June 3, 2018 Speaker: Brent Belford Series: The Gospel of Mark: Following the Suffering Servant
Passage: Mark 4:1–4:20
Series Sermon #13: The crowds following Jesus contained some who embraced him and others who rejected him. In order to bring more clarity about this to his readers, Mark records what Jesus says about the Sower and the Soils. This parable teaches that many people fail to obey Jesus' instruction. Some fail immediately, some quickly, and others eventually. Only genuine followers obey His word, bringing forth abundant fruit for the glory of God.
