  • Dangerous Grounds

    Contributed by Ajai Prakash on Oct 30, 2013
    based on 4 ratings
     | 5,790 views

    The soil, of course, represents the human heart, so the word of God falls on four different types of hearts. This parable is about salvation and three out of four of the soils represent people who are not genuinely saved.

    Opening illustration: Growing up as a teenager, my dad would take me to watch the plowing of the field and planting of wheat and sunflower. The tractor would plow deep into the hard soil of central India usually slicing the big snakes hibernating below the earth. Their mangled bodies were brought ...read more

     | 5,581 views

    The parable of the seed and the Sower is a snapshot of any society and most likely any congregation. How a person responds to the Word of God indicates what type of soil they are. The seed is perfect. The Sower is generous. What type of soil are you?

    Please take your Bibles and turn to Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23 NIV When I was a young teenager I actually did some broadcast sowing of seed. We were renting a field which was only a couple of acres and my Dad had plowed and dragged the field but we did not have a broadcast planter so we filled up ...read more

  • The Sower: The Flower Approach To Life Well Lived

    Contributed by Dustin Bumgarner on Aug 13, 2014
     | 8,205 views

    Jesus told the Parable about the Sower (or Farmer, as I've written throughout). This sermon displays a unique approach to that parable, along with a special acronym of FLOWER. We must use the FLOWER method in our everyday walk with God.

    Intro: How many people here have gone to the local Farmer’s Market to get you some fresh produce? Imagine taking a bite out of a sweet, juicy watermelon. In order to bring that fresh watermelon to you, the farmer or grower would have to do some digging (pun intended) to find out the perfect ...read more

    In life, just like in a garden, there are different kinds of soil. The kind of soil you are will determine how God can impact your life.

    Attitudes to avoid because they promote shallow spirituality.

    Last week we looked at "surface spirituality", the soil that did not receive the seed because it had been "walked on" and was hardened. We learned that we can develop a hardened heart when others hurt us if we’re not careful. If we let our hearts become bitter and unforgiving the Word of God ...read more
