Week Nine: Son of God

The Book of Mark

 Mark 4:1-20

The Parable of the Sower

Again Jesus began to teach by the lake. The crowd that gathered around him was so large that he got into a boat and sat in it out on the lake, while all the people were along the shore at the water’s edge. He taught them many things by parables, and in his teaching said:“Listen! A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants, so that they did not bear grain. Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up, grew and produced a crop, some multiplying thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times.”

Soil One:

 The Path - These people don't think they need anything from God.

 Soil Two:

 The Stony soil - These people get discouraged by other believers who are not obedient to God and fall away because the Word hasn't reached into their soul.

 Soil Three:

 The Thorny soil - These people are interested in Jesus but they are easily distracted and caught up in other matters so their faith falls to the wayside. 

Soil Four:

 The Good soil - These are the people who hear the word and respond in faith, growing in their relationship with God and helping to multiply His kingdom.

 Jesus calls His followers to a __permanent, lasting response_____.
