What Will You Do With Jesus?

  • Introduction
    • When facing Jesus, Pilate was left to ask the question... (Mk. 15:12)
    • When facing the saving power of the Gospel, the truth of Jesus in His word, how will you respond to that same question? (Mk. 4:3-20)
  • Four Possible Responses to the Word of the Lord:
    • Hard-hearted Hearers (v. 15) 
      • These do "not understand it" (Mt. 13:19), its importance / power.
      • "so that they will not believe and be saved " (Lk. 8:122).
    • Smooth-sailing Servants (v. 16-17)
      • "they have no firm root in themselves, but are only temporary "
      • "when affliction or persecution arises because of the word, immediately they fall away "
    • Distracted Disciples (v. 18-19)
      • "the worries of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things enter in and choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful."
    • Fruitful Followers (v. 20)
      • "the ones who have heard the word in an honest and good heart, and hold fast, and bear fruit with perseverance" (Lk. 8:15)
  • What is your soil? What will you do with Jesus?
    • The imperative is real, and choice must be made...
    • And that choice is yours and yours alone. (Rom. 14:12; 2 Cor. 5:10)
