Learning to teach and teaching to grow! We study the Word of God to grow, ourselves, our church, our ministry, our relationship with God! Bible study is an essential part of our walk with God!
Jesus taught the parable of the sower. There are a lot of lessons which we can learn from this one parable. The one I would like to point out is we grow as we receive God's word. And we produce more fruit when we receive more seed in our spiritual garden. (A small garden produces some fruit and a large garden produces much fruit.)
Changing lives relies on planting seeds into the hearts and minds of people. Plant the incorruptible seed of the word of God.
