Title: “Kingdom Parables”
Text: Mark 4:1-34
1. In the Parable of the Sower (vv.1-20), what are the things that Jesus says hinder people from becoming rooted, fruitful believers? Share a time in your own life where you've struggled with one or many of these hindrances.
2. What reason did Jesus give for teaching in parables (vv.10-12)? What does this mean about Jesus? What does this mean about believers? What does this mean about the lost?
3. In your own words, what does the Parable of the Growing Seed (vv.26-29) teach us about the Gospel? Why is this a comfort to those of us who have shared the Gospel to little or no effect?
4. In your own words, what does the Parable of the Mustard Seed (vv.30-34) teach us about God's Kingdom?
