Drawing of a hand sowing seedSermon Series:  The Kingdom of God is like…

Theme: ‘…A farmer went out to sow his seed…’

Scripture:  Matthew 13:1 – 9
 

Summary: Our worship today will be about celebrating God’s gifts to us. We will think together about Jesus’ ‘Parable of the Sower’ and explore the meaning of the story…

Here it is for you to read for yourself:
1. That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake. 2 Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore. 3 Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4 As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. 5 Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 6 But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. 8 Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. 9 Whoever has ears, let them hear.”
