Because, at the end of the day, we are all nothing more than the dust of the earth if we don’t have a God to breathe life into us.
The power of a parable is profound in its implications, which is why Christ used them so readily. They have the power both to disguise truth and to reveal it to those who are called, and they are packed full of truth. That is why this series will focus around the very familiar “Parable of the Sower” found in Matthew 13 and the realization that none of us start out as the good soil. It is only when God comes in, that we are transformed to a point where we can accept the seed and produce a crop. This has several profound implications on how we approach sharing our faith which we will explore as we go through this series together.
