Every Picture Tells A Story – CPM Graphics

As I read about Church Planting and Church Planting Movements, I come upon some pretty interesting diagrams, illustrations, and graphs. These graphics help us understand biblical teaching about evangelism and missions as well as strategies for entering mission fields and reaching the “unreached and unengaged” of the world for Christ through the multiplication of disciples and churches.

One such graphic has to do with Jesus’ Parable of the Sower, or the Soils. In this teaching, Jesus teaches about four different kinds of soil (hearts) on which the seed, the Word of God, falls and the respective results. This teaching of the Lord and its explanation can be found and read in Mark 4: 1-20.

This Parable encourages me to be about the abundant sowing of the Seed of God’s Word. I never know what kind of “soil” it is going to fall on. It just might produce fruit …  some 30-fold, some 60-fold, some 100-fold.

Church Planting practioners and researchers tell us that abundant sowing of the Word is a characteristic found in all Church Planting Movements that are taking place around the world.

The Parable of the Soils can be read on-line here.

The graphic above was found on the blog site of “Bible Opia – Thinking Through the Bible.”
