The Parable of the Soils
In our world people are always looking for a way to improve themselves, from different diets and types of exercise, to self help books and motivational speakers. The Self Help industry is huge. However when we go looking for self growth one of the few places we seem to look is to our Faith. This morning Terry takes us through The Parable of the Soils. When we grow in our Faith, when we trust in Jesus, when we defend against the thorns of life that may invade, we become good soil. Then the Seed from the Sower can take root in our heart and we produce fruit for the Kingdom of God
Terry proclaims the one Gospel through the history, research, rememberings and faith expressed in the text of the Gospel According to Luke. Jesus himself is the good news expressed by Luke. Beginning with the birth narratives unique to Luke's presentation, the good news of the Kingdom explodes into faithful view as each account, teaching, parable and event lived out and offered by Jesus, the Messiah-King, is examined the way Luke seemingly examined Jesus in his own work. Here we find a Jesus to love, a Jesus to follow, and ultimately a Jesus to worship.
