The Church & The World

Bible Study

Don’t just take our word for it . . . take His! We would encourage you to spend time examining the following Scriptures that shaped this sermon:Matthew 11:24-30;34-43

Sermon Summary

After the parable of the sower Jesus gives a similar parable to his disciples. He makes it clear that the followers of Jesus are left in the world with those who do not believe and they will suffer. However He draws four things out for them:

  • We are in the world as fruits of His labor
  • He is the judge of the world, not us
  • Though the world looks in disarray He is no fool and will bring justice
  • One day he will uproot evil and we will feast in eternity with Him
