You see everyone here this morning or watching online will respond to the message of the gospel differently. Some may rejoice in the truth preached. Others, not so much. They may think what a close-minded message ‚Äď that Jesus is the only way to eternal life. What about all the sincere basically good people who have never heard of Jesus? Or who were born into another religion? I mean Jesus loves everyone the same right? So to them I'm just another extreme fundamentalist who thinks my way is the only way. Some will be convicted of their sin and flee to Christ. Others will be indifferent to the word preached, and leave thinking, perhaps another day. Friends have you ever wondered why you responded positively to the gospel but members of your own family have not? Is it because you have a higher I.Q. or you are wiser than those who reject the gospel? Why all the different responses to the same message? Enter with me into the parable of the sower to discover the answer to that question.
