The Four Soils

Our hope is for our kids to know that: The Gospel is the seed that is sown  

37 He answered, “The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man.
Matthew 13:37 (NIV)

Synopsis: 
(Open the bible and read to your child Matthew 13:1-23) Jesus often used parables so that people would seek him out and ask for understanding. There were many who saw the miracles and heard his teaching yet they still did not believe. The parable of the sower was taught by Jesus to explain different types of hearts. Some will hear the message and not understand it, some will be joyful when they hear but the worries and trials of life occur they fall away, but some who hear the message, receive it, and share it. The message we are referring to is the gospel. The good news of Jesus dying on the cross so that we can have eternal life. Those of us who hear it and share it are like the seed that reproduced a hundredfold! The good news of Jesus will spread all over the world giving many people the hope that we have in Christ Jesus.

The Jesus Connection:
The gospel is the message about the kingdom of God that Jesus introduced in the parable of the sower. Not only is it planted in the lives of believers, but also we who are Christians then share it with others. We share the gospel with the world each time we are not afraid to testify about our Lord to the people around us. As God’s farmers, we sow the seed, then water it, but it is God who makes it grow (1 Corinthians 3:6–7). Since the beginning, the gospel was always how God planned to reach a dying world. The prophets of old longed to see the Messiah and God’s salvation revealed. The disciples were the first to see God’s plan unfold. Now all of us who receive that same message are called to join in the work of scattering the seed by spreading the good news of the gospel.
