Mark’s Gospel: The Parable of Four Soils, Pt. 6

The Parable of the Soils demands rigorous _______________-________________________ of us all.

The Parable of the Soils is not meant to make us ________________ our salvation; it is meant to offer us _____________________________.

  • Luke 8:5-15
  • James 2:14-17

 A “_________________” faith is a dead faith. It cannot save you.

 Genuine belief is always evidenced by some kind of ____________ ____________________.

  • Romans 10:9-10
  • 1 Peter 2:11
  • Romans 7:21-25
  • Hebrews 12:6-11
  • 1 Corinthians 3:10-15

We mistakenly think of salvation as something we get ______________ Christ rather than someone we are _________________________ in Christ

  • John 3:3
  • 1 Peter 1:3
  • 2 Corinthians 5:17
  • John 1:12-13
  • Ezekiel 36:26-27
  • 2 Corinthians 4:16, 5:2-4
  • Ephesians 2:8-9

 The issue in the Parable of the Soils is not whether one can ______________ or _______________ the faith; the issue is whether or not one ____________ ___________ _______ to begin with.

If Jesus is not your ________________, then He was never your ____________________.

Saving faith is ____________________ faith.  

 “Don’t _________________ your way into your beliefs; ___________________ your way into your feelings.” – J.D. Greear
