Dear Peter:

I enjoyed that outline. I am sure the Lord's people will also.

Thanks brother...


Great post, Peter! With 3-points starting with the same letter, I do believe you are a Baptist preacher!

Unfortunately, we've got a lot of rocky ground preachin' going on these days. "The seed falling on rocky ground ... have no root, they last only a short time." Growing deep must be initiated with Truth, the whole Truth, and nothing but the Truth. There's too much debate these days in SBC ranks asking "What is Truth?"

The roots of young folks can't grow well in ground seeded and watered by diluted truth. Growing not only depends on good soil, but good watering to sprout healthy roots. If they aren't growing down properly, this generation can't grow out. We've got to turn over the fallow ground, to get to some good soil again in SBC life. "But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.” Do it again, Lord!!

Thanks Max. Yes, I alliterate. But taking my que from most of the great alliterators, I try to be sane with it and never 'push the envelope' so to speak...


Really enjoyed this message. Thank you.
