Roll Up Your Sleeves and Sow!

Jill Briscoe

Building the Kingdom of God requires our involvement. Amidst trampled paths, rocky soil, thorns, and weeds, there's the opportunity for a beautiful harvest. We might not always be able to see the good soil, but it's there—waiting and longing to be sowed and watered.

In this series, Jill Briscoe unwraps the parable of the sower to practically show how we all have a role in telling the world about Jesus. She asks us to graciously and willingly roll up our sleeves and sow—to trust that God will work through us and that work for Him is never in vain.

So are you willing to work the fields with complete abandonment and with complete faith that God's Word will always find the good soil? Will you work the fields to help prepare for the harvest?

Messages From This Series:

  1. 1. The Power of the Seed

    Jill Briscoe

    Can an orchid grow in a putrid and smoldering garbage pile? Yes, and it has. That's the power of life within the seed. And so it is with the Good News. Are you all out for Jesus, scattering news of Him wherever you go, no matter how dirty or unwelcoming the circumstance might be?

    In this message, Jill Briscoe encourages us to believe that God's Word will always find good soil. It's up to us to take advantage of every opportunity so that the fields will be ready for someone to come along and harvest to the glory of God.

    Scripture:  Mark 4:1 - 4:20 , Matthew 13:1 - 13:23

  2. 2. Tending the Kingdom's Garden

    Jill Briscoe

    It's easy to see when a garden needs watering. The plant leaves begin to wilt, the ground becomes dry, and cracks appear. And if the plants aren't tended to, they're at risk of withering and dying.

    It's the same with people who need Jesus. In this message, Jill Briscoe helps us understand what's at risk and asks us to dedicate ourselves to impacting people in our sphere of influence.

    Scripture:  Luke 8:1 - 8:15 , Mark 4:1 - 4:20 , Matthew 13:1 - 13:23

  3. 3. Combating Crows, the Enemy of the Harvest

    Jill Briscoe

    Have you ever witnessed someone growing in their faith and then suddenly there is a horrible spiritual attack? Jesus warned there is an enemy of the harvest—crows that are bent on snatching the seeds scattered in the fields before strong roots can take hold.

    We may not like to think about it, but Satan is eager to discourage and snatch away believers. In this message, Jill Briscoe encourages all the saints to get in the fight, disciple those around them, and help people grow strong roots in their faith.

    Scripture:  Luke 8:1 - 8:15 , Mark 4:1 - 4:20 , Matthew 13:1 - 13:23
