EXPECT AND PREPARE TO BE DIFFERENT
This week, Pastor Ruttan continued with our new series called “Crop,” an in-depth look at Jesus’ parable of the sower in Mark 4:1-20. In short, the “seed” in the parable is God’s word to us, and the different kinds of soil correspond to our hearts. Are we receptive and will we bear a crop that honours him and gives other hope with the legacy of our lives? We looked closely at these two verses which discuss the 2nd kind of soil: “Others, like seed sown on rocky places, hear the word and at once receive it with joy. But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away.”
Have a listen to the 2nd way you want to avoid when receiving God’s word.
