Bible Text: Luke 8:4-18 | Mark Stepp
Series: The Gospel According to LukePastor Mark Stepp teaches from Luke chapter 8, verses 4-18, a passage that is often called the Parable of the Sower or the Parable of the Soils. Jesus is teaching by using in parables, and in this passage He tells them if they have ears to hear, they must "hear" what He says. How do we “hear” God? Pastor Mark challenges us that to truly hear, we must be people who receive the word of God -- people who hold His words in our hearts and live by those words that they may bring forth fruit.
