Sermon Description

Do you remember your biology experiment where you took a cup filled with dirt and tiny seed home? Mysteriously, after days of anticipation, you saw something green shooting out of the soil. Join us this Sunday as we go back to elementary school and explore the parable Jesus told of the growing seed found in Mark 4: 26-29. There is life within the seed, and it is destined to grow, but it cannot grow without the soil and the tending of the soil.  

Jesus said, “The Kingdom of God is like a farmer who scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, while he’s asleep or awake, the seed sprouts and grows, but he does not understand how it happens. The earth produces the crops on its own. First, a leaf blade pushes through, then the heads of wheat are formed, and finally, the grain ripens.  And as soon as the grain is ready, the farmer comes and harvests it with a sickle, for the harvest time has come.”
