A Sure Foundation:
The Integrity of the Word
I. Mark 4:26
“And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as
if a man should cast seed into the ground.”
A. This is a comparison
between how the kingdom of God works and how a seed works.
1.The seed symbolizes the Word of God.
2.Mark 4:14: The sower sows the Word.
3.He used a seed because it’s a natural law, not a man-made system.
You need to see the importance, integrity, and value of the Word.
B.The kingdom of God works off of the Word.
C. It’s effortless.
1.Apple trees don’t
struggle to produce fruit.
2.The only reason change is a terrible experience is because of the way we go about trying to get the change.
3.Change comes by sowing the Word in your heart.
“. . . thou shalt meditate therein day and night.”
D. We expect change but live
carnally and don’t take the Word seriously.
“. . . they are life unto
those that find them, and health to all their flesh.”
2.Don’t wait until it’s too late to make changes.
2 II. Mark 4:27-28
“And should sleep, and rise night and day, and
the seed should spring and grow up, he knows not how. For the earth brings forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.”
A. There’s a law to seed, time, and harvest.
1.Time can become your friend.
2.You can’t wait until the night before harvest to plant your seed.
3.Once you allow time to elapse, you’ve built up momentum, and the
benefits are forever.
B.You don’t even have to
understand; it just works.
C. Mark4: 28:
“. . . brings forth fruit of herself.”
Greek word is automatos. It
means self-moved or automatic.
“. . . but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
It takes time for the Word of God to spring up and start working in your life. But, it’s the nature of the Word to produce change.
Your labor will be rewarded!
III. Mark 4:29
“But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the
harvest is come.”
A. You can’t go out every day to see if your seed is growing.
B.Harvest comes when we use the millions of seeds God gave us.
IV. Mark 4:35-41
“And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto
the other side. And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was
in the ship.
And there were also with him other little ships.
And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. And he was in the stern of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and saying unto him, Master, do you care not that
And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind
ceased, and there was a great calm. And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful?
how is it that ye have no faith?
And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and
the sea obey him?”
A.Jesus taught ten parables
on the same day about the importance of the Word.
B.He gave them a specific word:
“Let us pass over unto the other side.”
C. The disciples should have taken His teachings and applied them.
D. He had given them a pop quiz, and they failed.
