The Gospel Challenge ~ Use GMO Seed

The Gospel Challenge ~ Use GMO Seed Sermon Audio Here

Mark 4:26-34

Concerning agriculture, there is controversy over GMO seed, especially among those who don’t know much about it. I find it interesting that the same conditions give rise to controversy about the Gospel; when people don’t know much about it, they’re more likely to have wrong conclusions. Jesus taught about the use of seed as a way of describing how the Kingdom of God works.

The Kingdom of God Is Like

A Growing Seed
Mark 4:26-29

  • v26/27 understanding of HOW God gives growth isn’t required
  • v28 growth is a process; it takes time
  • v29 growth has a purpose; it meets a need

A Mustard Seed
Mark 4:30-31

  • v31 Salvadora persica (Middle Eastern variety); 1/16” -> 10′
  • growth isn’t dependent upon impressive starting conditions

An Observable Sequence
Mark 4:32-34

  • v32 look to provide environment of protection
  • – followers of God protect the oppressed, not put down
  • v33 put in the work to understand the Gospel
  • – we aren’t supposed to coast; we WORK for the King

v34 listen to Jesus for explanation – We don’t always get the answers we want, but since the Lord DOES know what He’s doing, we might learn something if we listen for the still small voice of God
