How we live is determined by how we hear; and who we listen to often determines who we are. The Bible calls us to listen so we can experience God's extravagant love and joy. He has gone out of his way to make sure we HEAR about his hope. In Mark 4, Jesus delivers one of his most famous parables to show us how the condition of our hearts determines how we respond His message. Like all parables, the Parable of the Sower demands a response. Pastor Carlos reminds us we need to listen to what Jesus has to say so that we can be shaped by his truth.
