• Mark 4:14 The sower (farmers) sows the word
(message).
• Sower- is a farmer who plants seeds
• Word or Message- is the Gospel of Jesus

• We are to plant the Gospel of Jesus into the
hearts (minds) of others.
Sower or Farmer or Planter
• The Sower (farmer) is, primarily, Jesus Himsef,
but subsequently the apostles, and as the ages
roll on, all those who seek to plant in human
hearts the word of God.

bring forth vegetation, the plants yielding seed,
and the fruit tree yielding fruit after its kind,
whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it

  • 2. Goal of this lesson 1. What are we sowing or planting? 2. How do we sow or plant? 3. The value of the seed
  • 3. Sower or Farmer or Planter • Mark 4:14 The sower (farmers) sows the word (message). • Sower- is a farmer who plants seeds • Word or Message- is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. • We are to plant the Gospel of Jesus into the hearts (minds) of others.
  • 4. Sower or Farmer or Planter • The Sower (farmer) is, primarily, Jesus Himsef, but subsequently the apostles, and as the ages roll on, all those who seek to plant in human hearts the word of God. • The farmer (sower) plants seeds • Luke 8:11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
  • 5. S E E D is the Word of GOD • Likeness between SEED and Word of GOD is that the seed, the germ of the fruit to be produced, is enclosed in it! Without the seed no fruit can be produced in the material world. • The fruit must correspond to the seed. • Genesis 1:11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth vegetation, the plants yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after its kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it
  • 6. Point # 2 How do we plant the S E E D?
  • 7. How do we plant the SEED? • By loving (agape) other saints. • John 13:35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. • Galatians 6:10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
  • 8. How do we plant the seed? • Allowing others to see our faith our works. • Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. • Mark 2:5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.
  • 9. Faith and works • James 2:20 But will you know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? • James 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
  • 10. How do we plant the seed? • As we go throughout life each day invite and tell others the impact God has had on your life. • Psalms 105:1 O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people. • Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go you into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
  • 11. Point # 3 The VALUE of the S E E D
  • 12. The Value of the seed • Gives birth to life and salvation • Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believes; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. • Romans 1:17 For in it is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. (Heb.11:6)
  • 13. The Value of the S E E D • Gives birth to spiritual blessings • Ephesians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: • Pardon, peace, redemption, adoption, the earnest of the Spirit • 1 John 1:9;
  • 14. Pardon • 1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanses us from all sin. • 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
  • 15. Peace • Psalms 29:11 The LORD will give strength unto his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace. • Psalms 119:165 Great peace have they who love your law: and nothing shall offend them. • Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
  • 16. Redemption • Psalms 31:5 Into your hand I commit my spirit: you have redeemed me, O LORD God of truth. • Psalms 119:9 How shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to your word. • Romans 3:24 Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: • Ephesians 1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
  • 17. Adoption • Galatians 4:5-7 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. • And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. • Therefore you are no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ (Romans 8:15)
  • 18. The Earnest of the Spirit • 2 Corinthians 1:21-22 Now he who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, is God; Who has also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts. • Ephesians 1:13-14 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth (seed), the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
  • 19. Review 1. We are planting the word of God in others lives by how we live and what we do and say. 2. How do we plant the seed 3. Realize the value of planting a seed!
