    Forgotten God

    Our fall quarter calls us to REMEMBER...

    Remember we have a special gift from God that is given to all of His children. Scripture tells usso much about this important part of the Trinity, yet for many of us we continue to ignore the

    daily presence of God the Spirit. Remember there are three parts of God; God the Father, God

    the Son, and God the Spirit. Join us this quarter as we remember the God who lives in us.

    Lessons From A Farmer Part 2

    Matthew 13: 1-23

    Our current sermon series is equipping us and encouraging us to share

    our aith with others. Something that rustrates us at times as we are

    seeking to share our aith is the response to the message o the gospel

    that people may have. Many people are not open to hearing the word

    o God. Those who are open and who receive the message dont oten

    retain it or respond to it. How are we to understand and perceive thosewho have varying responses to Gods message? The parable that Jesus

    tells o the armer and the seed gives us great insights about what

    happens to the word o God once it is planted in the hearts o people.

    Gods ultimate plan is or his Word to bring orth ruit in our lives.

    1. How would you evaluate your own receptiveness to Gods Word?

    2. Can you think o an example o when accepting a particular

    instruction rom the Word o God was di cult or you to accept or


    3. How would you describe people who are represented in the story

    as soil that received the seed which ell among the thorns (Matt. 13:7)?

    4. What are some examples o the worries o lie that can choke out

    the Word o God (Matt. 13:22)?

    m | g r o u p M a t e r i a l

    5. How is wealth deceitul (Matt. 13:22)?

    6. How can the deceitulness o wealth choke out the Word o God (Matt. 13:22)?

    7. How would you describe people who are represented in the story as the soil

    that received the seed which ell on good ground (Matt. 13:8)?

    8. What do you think Jesus meant when he reerred to the Word producing a

    crop, yielding 100, 60 or 30 times what was sown (Matt. 13:23)?

    9. What do you think Jesus meant when he said, He who has ears, let him hear

    (Matt. 13:9)?

    10. What other principles or observations do you have about Jesus parable o

    the armer?
