Mark 4:14-20 is the explanation of the parable of the sower.

There are four types of soil.

Only one of those soils bears lasting fruit.

At the beginning of a person’s commitment to Christ, and for quite some time, it may not be obvious which type of “soil” they are.

But time will always tell, according to this parable.

If you have doubts about which type of “soil” you are, because you struggle with besetting sin, then you’ll need to clear that matter up.

Do you want to be “good soil”?

Is that what you want with all your heart?

Then you probably are good “soil”, by the grace of God.

“Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble” (2 Peter 1:10)

The scripture is still inspired and is the seed of the Gospel, which, when sown in the right soil, bears the fruits of salvation, regardless of the authenticity of the church setting.

And yet, out of honor and respect for the Lord Jesus Christ, we should be very vocal respectfully pointing out expressions of church which misrepresent Him, and explaining how they misrepresent Him.

“Dead Babies Matter”

Yes, Joe?

There’s presently a congressional bill to allow full term abortions nationwide.

……

There’s an eternal difference between being saved or not saved.

Are you saved?

Aussie, peaceful protest is great, but weren’t these suckers democratically elected? What if the majority want a tyrannical government?

But there’s a vacuum of moral leadership.

America has far more potential good leaders.

Aussie is lacking.

Spiritually, Aussie is a bizarre place.

Look at a full xray of yourself and know that the real you is more than simply a skeleton covered with meat. Am I getting religious now?

…..

To those who have a problem with God: be more concerned whether God has a problem with you.

……

To speak out about something doesn’t necessarily mean you think you can change the world by speaking out. It could simply mean you think it’s wrong to keep silent.

……

Serving God is forever.

……

If someone has the Holy Spirit living in them you would think they would have the same standard of holiness as He does?

……

In the New Testament, “church” describes the body of Christ, and it is also describes the action of gathering and relating between the members of His body. The Greek word means “an assembly”. An assembly describes a company of people, as well as the act of assembling. In other words, we are the church, and therefore we assemble or “do church” together. Assembling or gathering, regardless of the number, or the time or location, is church, because that’s what church is, an assembly or gathering. The purpose and function of the gathering defines it. Just gathering doesn’t make it church.

“God is the sweetest friend, but the worst enemy.”

—Thomas Watson

He is an enemy of those who refuse His friendship and His terms, and insist on being His enemies.

TRUTH BOMB

“Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” (Rom. 5:1-2)

You can’t be half justified before God – You either are, or you aren’t.

Make sure you are.

Make sure He has justified you by His death and resurrection, and not you trying to justify yourself.
