Bearing Fruit In Evangelism (Mark 4:13-20)Phillip Stuckey, July 24, 2022
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
In Jesus’ Parable of the Sower, He describes the kind of heart we should all long to have –one that believes the gospel and bears fruit that brings God glory (Mark 4:20; Matt. 5:13-16). Part of bearing fruit for the Lord is bringing others to Him, making more disciples (Matt. 28:18-20; Acts 2:41, 47; 6:7; 12:24; cp. Gen. 1:28). But how do we do that as individuals? While evangelism ultimately involves sharing the gospel with someone, it involves more than that (Rom. 1:16; 10:17). It also involves living in such a way that people can see Jesus in you (1 Cor. 4:16; Phil. 4:9). What are some things that we can do in our personal lives that will equip us to be fruitful in winning souls for Jesus?

Mark 4:13–20 (Listen)
13 And he said to them, “Do you not understand this parable? How then will you understand all the parables? 14 The sower sows the word. 15 And these are the ones along the path, where the word is sown: when they hear, Satan immediately comes and takes away the word that is sown in them. 16 And these are the ones sown on rocky ground: the ones who, when they hear the word, immediately receive it with joy. 17 And they have no root in themselves, but endure for a while; then, when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately they fall away. 18 And others are the ones sown among thorns. They are those who hear the word, 19 but the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches and the desires for other things enter in and choke the word, and it proves unfruitful. 20 But those that were sown on the good soil are the ones who hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold.”
