Sermon notes: The parable of the Sower

Introduction

I am fully aware that I have preached to you from this passage before but wanted to share the same today for a very good reason. As your Pastor I am responsible for your personal spiritual growth. You know sometimes we get complacent in our Christian walk which hinders our spiritual growth. When that happens I have to stir your nest and remind you to start moving forward again. So, I am going to stir your nest tonight. Now, like I told you the last time I preached from this passage, Jesus spoke about four different groups of people that are in the Church.

A certain ungodly tavern-keeper who liked music decided to attend one of John Wesley’s meetings to hear the singing. He had resolved however, not to listen to the sermon. He sat with his head down and fingers in his ears. But when God wants to speak to a man’s soul, He has His ways.

Sermon: The parable of the empty house

Sermon: The parable of the empty house

Introduction

While doing research for today’s sermon I came across an illustration that describes a house which sat empty because its owner lived in a houseboat. He didn’t maintain his old residence at all.
