Sunday Morning Sermon for 8/28/11

We had a great time together in the Lord this past Sunday.  My mind was a little distracted because my youngest child was in the hospital over the weekend and I was running on fumes part of the time.  Despite that, I was energized at the opportunity to preach the Word.  We are still talking about discipleship and this sermon highlights the parable of the sower as a picture of four kinds of beginning disciples.  Notes are available below the audio play link.  May God richly bless you through His Word.
