Jesus invited people to come to him, asking them,
“Are you with me or not? Are you in or out?”
More importantly, Jesus looked for those who were “All In!”
What does it mean to be “All In”?
In the Parable of the Sower, Jesus tells us the answer, plus examples of what it is not:
1. Hard-hearted (v.15)
In a spiritual battle; put on the armor of God. (Ephesians 6:12-13)
2. Superficial (v.16-17)
Abide in Jesus; practice spiritual disciplines. (John 15:5)
3. Divided (v.18-19)
Let go of other “masters.” (Matthew 6:24)
4. “All In” (v.20)
Good trees produce lots of good fruit; be a “good tree.”
(Genesis 1:28, Matthew 7:17-20)
What do 4th soil people look like? Know any?
Reflection: Are you “All In: 4th Soil People”?
