Scripture: Luke 8:4-15
Message Summary: Today we are going to look at one of the parables Jesus tells to His followers that is recorded in the gospel of Luke. There are three specific elements to this parable: the sower, the seed, and the soil. The sower represents the follower of Jesus. The seed represents the message of the gospel. And the soil represents the heart of the non-believer. What we will learn from this parable is simple: it is our responsibility to sow the seed, and the rest is up to God. We can’t change other people’s hearts, just like the sower can’t change the soil he’s planting in. But God is more than capable of changing someone’s heart and opening their mind to receive the gospel. So with that in mind, let’s dive in.
