There’s only one soil for the seed – the human ___________________ – but there are four different ______________________________ of that soil.
Last week: 1. ____________________ Soil
This week: 2. _________________ Soil
In the Shallow Soil, everything looks great on the _______________________ but underneath there is no ___________________ that can produce fruit.
Example from scripture: Ananias & Sapphira – Acts 5:1-11
A sign of the Shallow Soil is a ___________________________ understanding of what it means to follow Christ.
You don’t come to Jesus to make a better ______________________ of you – you come to Jesus to _____________ so that He can live through you.
The root represents _________________ spiritual growth that happens in the heart through _________________________ with Christ over time.
The quick, apparent growth of this soil is, in reality, merely superficial and ___________________ to endure the _____________________ of following Jesus.
Enduring “on account of the Word”:
- T___________________________ – Obedience is costly. Romans 12:1-2
- P_________________________ – Hebrews 10:32-39
How does the testing of your faith produce endurance?
R_________________________ + R__________________________ = Endurance
2 Corinthians 4:16-17
The Parable of the Soils demands an honest ___________________________________ of every believer.
