Hear the word in 2014

This week I was in a conversation (if Facebook counts as a real conversation!) about what to look for in a good church. Many will be asking this question as they search for a church in the next few weeks, and so it’s a great question for us to consider now!

The top answers were ‘welcoming’ and ‘faithful Bible preaching.’ Both are important, and praise God that Bible preaching is valued in many places. But there is something else missing… isn’t there?!

In the Parable of the Sower (Luke 8:1–15), Jesus tells us that it’s not just Bible preaching… it’s hearing the Word that is important: ‘But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop.’

Let’s pray and encourage one another to hear the word of Jesus from the Bible in 2014, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop.

In Christ Jesus, Tory Cayzer
