for your for your individual entertainment and keep you awake but I wanted to be interactive and fun if you have any questions life by Mounties asked me afterwards nothing very just because I don't go

notes have a Bible or PDA like this when you appear sisters all technologically all all up to be here and he written of them okay you started getting outline the discipleship of any goal of the parts so that the parts for the next three sections so I went forth so word of God this is really this now by Wayside Sony ground among thorns the ground it doesn't matter insects John eight thirty one is I want us to memorize this open your Bibles to John ten thirty first thirty one estimate your lazy on open to it at all but he will also give you do know it's hard to both lipid levels in time to go to John chapter eight verse thirty one this seminar you can memorize one Bible verse in an taken memorizing Bible verse that someone says all grandpa Joe's is a lot how did you enjoy DUI seasons they want me I memorized a Bible verse is a wow okay for you and your friend go next year but it does have a person you want to minimize entire thing is the second case it reads if you continue in my word you finish it in the second half is out there sicker looking for it's not up there if you continue in my word what that is the fundamental structure for this seminar day if you understand that verse you sent all in a normal urine to be here in this two-part structure is first clause is conditional if the requirement is contingent in the second quarter then are ye my disciples indeed that is the absolute cause of the repercussions the resultant operative clause so if you been there and then you if there nests amen okay furniture were on same page and I'm here to regional policy if you do I'll point you out to the conditional clause continue to remain safe acting during a consistent and denoting a fixed location my reprint process of internal individual in this case it is who he needs us and work speech teachers doctors decorations saying eight three four consists since we then both doctrines and teachings of Jesus what happens we become disciples and presently lost you second-floor old person reference all of us a our second person poor condition up to be with his arguments in two thousand and nine delete possession in this case is referring to who Jesus and the disciples were medical students and indeed truly in reality most certainly for sure double absolution and promise faith itself this is poor honest and Jesus if you stay in my word unity disciple and off the recording of the author record literally next semester by semester next order the social quarterly is on the topic of his emerging churches of discipleship so this little presentation will help you while all of you are will be bona fide sound school teachers such you are my disciples are some weird ideas out there and discipleship today especially some demonstrators especially in Protestantism especially Christian Jesus had blue jeans so we know where it leads where did I get that I have no idea what I will say the Bible of the Bible say about discipleship Jesus Jesus my words will result in Jesus my disciples a you get the words become disciples is a clear is anyone confused with what it feels like a lifetime that you as a clear smart consistency in Jesus 's words a cause being disciples our state of being is dependent on our consistency and continue to work as some of you are already phasing out this attribute may let it more clear the point of today's seminar is that she practical methods on how to not phase out of a Bible seminar okay there is no such thing as a cultural Christian or Christian who does not believe in the word Richard Dawkins negatively is just too notable thought about just but maybe Google 's God delusion and he says just enough to be the you are all that I am a cultural Christian I worship but I keep Christmas I sing all the Christmas dude jingles and stuff and I go to church because I'm culturally Christian but I'm not a real Christmas probably doesn't exist in the majority which is saying that if we don't say that a lot of a few who living that way and how intercultural minutes but again these days so don't doubt if you'd heard it in the word of God that's how your real Christian talk about culture Christian John fifteen forty ten abide in me I is on his way way well I just highlighted the one where the address appearing over and over again abide in me I knew as the branch cannot bear fruit of itself is at the bottom divine number ten he said he wanted me I you are the branches he had applied it to me and I named the same bring forth much fruit if a man abide not in me for six percent if ye abide in me and my words abide in you for seven here is my father glorified that you bear much fruit so shall you be my good verse nine as the father hath loved me seven loves you continue you my love in a green network for your continuing work for by the same word and verse ten if you micromanage you shall abide in my love it hasn't kept my father 's management in light of his love Samara www. over to remove memorized if you continue in my work that were for continues to send what is invite continue of I just stayed consistent in the word of God the disciples centralized that in a simple as that but so they will let me know what would I confuse that at six seven if the word of God increases number of disciples multiplies interest greatly read that we really him the word of God increased the number of disciples multiplied and greatly a great company of prescribing through faith if the word of God goes up enough my pathetic uptime then the disciples also prolonged pain purpose this study will look at the parable of the sewer in order to see what practical things you need him to continue to work to become a disciple of Christ this is not a sermon here in the city when I can presentation this is the practical presentation the seminar is for your notes they appeared together and he did same and if you don't does razor hanging this is a kind of an interactive experience you pay some of the sites it Pamela Sower has four types of ground a warrant has us teach us how to keep the word of God in us I know a lot of you already know what comparable store isn't it a little in depth closer look at this and I think you will be rewarded by the Holy Spirit the parable of the sewer is found in the read of the other Gospels before Jonathan mention it the fact that all three Matthew Mark and John Matthew Mark and Luke mention it is awesome importance it's in chapter thirteen of Matthew chapter four Mark chapter eight of Luke first for the solar rent judge I'm just confident that either chambers freebies and behold I saw went forth to sow his thing with Scripture and reword is inspired by the wife of Holy Spirit God meant every word every word the first fourteen holes when the one of the Bible says behold what should you do behold in my imagination to work for behold she is in England Old Testament snug the measures there were no punctuation marks there is nothing is this letter letter letter let alone knows his letter letter letter letter letter letter letter letter letter mean the metadata they were everything is is shaping icons image I am Kate don't have I am how can you live without I don't understand it when you're communicating with someone and you want to express such audit shoring or utter disgust what do you put your comment sorry it has the makings of the

nice Scripture Sing Sing when the Bible writers were nearly this is a archer importance I want the reader to look at this city is one word that word is he may in Hebrew which means behold look at this it's important whenever you read before the Scripture imagine a HMO die like the eyes rooting big and in the mouth literature circle but in order to breathe this is disputed that would take Matthew thirteen verse three behold a shower went forth to sow Marxism a similar but it says what much of what participants are gullible input here I can't take parking and it was beautiful home business report there went out a cell were just so Luke Lucas Lucas a doctor he sat motionless at us so I went out to sow his seed came the thirty first thirty seven says he does so with the good seed is who in Scripture interprets Scripture the parser sewing is who is Jesus Christ himself came to see how Mark for fourteen the sewer so if the word Luke eight eleven now the parable is this the seed is the word of God there are some weird interpretations out there the people within work the seed is out to others but if the word of God in the Bible is clear on that six four sixty three it is the spirit of equity and equipping resurrects his life the flesh profits nothing the words that I speak unto you their spirit they are alive so I want us to understand I think fundamentals UIC in his philosophy

united aspect of relief especially the word of God is SS is adding disputes to select one described release with his words and we worship on the day work .exe takes a pause and say that's what's good for founders even when God was saying and doesn't create still creating this by default so criminals just come hang out John five twenty four very good essays you need that hears my word and believes

science background in physics exciting water out of an oven or quarter report medicine for my part about running out of a busy little squiggly lines and causing theory and what you need out of we don't know our thinking it's cause for nothing it's like you don't have to go Mica 's greasy Lake in beating was receded saying that the actual essence of all reality is the word of God is unclear we believe wholeheartedly by default cannot live in a city can come up as a jihadist and beautiful so you have on achieving low-lying out of Ricky but if Jesus said that this thing will be transformed

Iceland Scripture reading from the Muslim half sister I saw Stephen Tyson security you people do just what was going on with QuickTime and with people stand up here I am looking around and guess what the only one sitting down us are the Americans Avis instead of looking it up and dig out to show respect to the word of God why is it the restructuring during Frankenstein at divine service Richard is going on the US have those people who read Scripture and the like and I'll also would like to offer a sick and it could be just that I'd also start just humbles the law overwork the word of God that

Calvary to spare proxy looks when a chapter a day you read this book those chapters are like fifty pages long in like font he had nothing I can do this we should be striving for understanding not for

and then realize the love of God and experience in a safe tactics this is something speed forty four this is how Satan takes away our attention solid crisis driver soul by his love scene tries to turn away the tension of the one who is moved to seek the Savior engages in mind worldly schemes excites criticism or in serious doubt and unbelief the speaker 's choice of language or is met or may not please let your any dwell upon these defects thus the truth they need and which God 's grace he sent them is no lasting impression having the boring creature her down one of having you are so fixed on the way he says something or the way you but that ugly pink tide of these wages can't get beyond that same cause of our tension to be to be just get away from the word of God it's like anything else out there the crying baby the politics are like last year as you know whatever it is a just take your attention anywhere off the work order word of God that you can translate attention in cases with the world excites criticism judgment as to discern a guys if you see a drunk person there anywhere you guys community discernment this people is a will I went judging by what I was going to be his

gone by the wayside wayside on the track but not on the track this describes people who are next to other like on the way but not next to the way if you are sensing there in the church and in the church there doing devotions but they're not in the book they're reading the word of God but they're not reading the work there praying for the upright the reaching out but they're not reaching to understand C- interviews conflict already it is also where the focus is sometimes we go through the motions and we satisfy ourselves thinking hey I'm been having that Christians must do one doing what the main essence of Christianity is not that is seeking the word of God on although WIC we sit up straight men and assays of revising the proper eyes open and see what I hear for the food in it were not here for the food the food here is not so great were not here define our future spouse advertising walk through those doors I want turned on to gain it it's not your future spouse the Lord will

opportunity that the gags here atrocity audiologist agents of the hundred things that I don't know I don't but they all have same experience and today we need to have expressed an free morning how much more powerful Christians are leaving you a lack of attention understanding focus can result in the working place in that wayside the character of God is reproducible and it simply as a result
