What Did Jesus Say About Responsibility?

Series: But What Did Jesus Say About It?

Stuart Briscoe

What kind of soil are you? Jesus’ parable of the sower and the seed is probably one of His best known parables. The sower goes out and sows seed on a hard pathway, in shallow soil, thorny soil, and good soil. The point of the parable, however, isn’t really the sower or the seed—it’s the soil. The seed, the Word of God, was the same everywhere it fell, but what determined if the seed took root was the reception it received in the soil. We, like the soil, have a responsibility to respond to the Word of God! 

In this message, Stuart Briscoe walks us through this parable, explaining how the different types of soil respond to the seed and encouraging us to be good soil.

Scripture: Luke 8:1 - 8:15
