Jesus' parable of the soils challenges us to allow God's Word to penetrate our life, to count the cost of following Christ and to take steps to move forward on our spiritual journey. The trampled path represents the hard heart, the rocky soil represents the impulsive heart, the weedy soil represents the distracted heart and the fertile soil represents the receptive heart.
Speaker: Jeff Jones
Scripture: Mark 4:1-20
Topic: Process of Spiritual Growth
Fear is the antithesis of faith. Examples like the terrified Hebrews spying out the Promised Land, David facing the giant Goliath, the disciples panicking on a stormy boat, illustrate the fact that faith changes our perspective of fear. True faith begins and ends in the person of Jesus Christ. He alone can still the storms and bring peace.
