Old Testament prophecies spoke of a Messiah that would come and establish a kingdom. The Jews assumed that this king, this Messiah, would come and establish an earthly kingdom to rule and conquer at will. What they didn't expect was that when Jesus came, He came to establish an eternal kingdom acquired by service and love. In "Tales of the Kingdom," we take a closer look at Jesus' parables.
The Parable of the Four Soils as told in Mark 4:1-20 may be one of the most commonly known stories told by Jesus to explain the secret of God's kingdom. What kind of soil are you? Pastor Chris talks about the different ways God's work can fail to grow in someone's life. He uses real life scenarios to explain the four soils and gives three responses necessary for growth.
