GOOD GROUND
 
          Text: Luke 13:6 He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none.
 7 Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?
 8 And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it:
9 And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.
 
 
Matthew 13:1The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side.
2And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.
3And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;
4And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:
5Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:
6And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.
7And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:
8But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
           
 
The  explanation of the parable
 
 
 18Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
 
 19When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.
 
 20But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;
 
 21Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.
 
 22He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
 
 23But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
 
 
By the way side.
  Understandeth it not.
2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Into stony places.
 
 
 Heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it. Tribulation or persecution ariseth.
 
 
1 Peter 4:12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
 
 13But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
 
 14If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
 
 15But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters.
 
 16Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.
 
 17For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
 
 18And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
 
 19Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
 2 Timothy 2:12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us.
 
 
Received seed among the thorns.
 
Care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches.
It's easy to get caught up in the things of this life.
 
1 Corinthians 15:19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
 
The good ground. Beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
 
John 15:2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

Sunday Sermon 3/18/12 - Amos 8:11-12

Jim,
Here is my Sermon Text:


Amos 8:11-12

11Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
 12And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.

Thanks!
