2. Shallow Areas

Matthew 13:20 - But he who received the seed on stony places, this is he who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; 21 yet he has no root in himself, but endures only for a while. For when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he stumbles.

3. Weedy Areas

Matthew 13:22 - Now he who received seed among the thorns is he who hears the word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful.

4. Good Areas

“Six Days Before Passover … ” (John 12:1)


1. Focus On Jesus

John 12:3 - Then Mary took a pound of very costly oil of spikenard, anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil.


2. Believe For Better

John 12:12 – 13[12]The next day a great multitude that had come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, 13 took branches of palm trees and went out to meet Him, and cried out: “Hosanna! ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’ The King of Israel!”


3. Share The Good News

John 12:17 - So the people, who were with Him when He called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from the dead, continued to tell others about Him. John 12:19 - The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, “You see that you are accomplishing nothing. Look, the world has gone after Him!”



- Some People Hear Something Else

John 12:28 -29[28] Then a voice spoke from heaven, saying, “I have already brought glory to my name, and I will do so again.” 29 When the crowd heard the voice, some thought it was thunder, while others declared an angel had spoken to him.


- Some People Worry About Others

John 12:42 -43[42] But many believed in Jesus, even many of the leaders. But because of the Pharisees, they did not say they believed in him for fear they would be put out of the synagogue. 43 They loved praise from people more than praise from God.

John 12:44 -46[44] Then Jesus cried out, “Whoever believes in me does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me. 45 The one who looks at me is seeing the one who sent me. 46 I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.

The Invisible String
Love Brings Joy
Sam Farina

I John 5:3-5,9- 21 (NIV)

1 John 5:13-15 – “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us- whatever we ask- we know that we have what we asked of him.”

1. Eternal Life Connects us to God’s Heart

1 John 5:3-5,19 - “For this is love for God, to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome. For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world –even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God. We know that we are children of God.”

2. Eternal Life Satisfies our Every Desire, Ultimate Joy

1 John 5:9-11 - “We accept human testimony, but God’s testimony is greater, because it is the testimony of God, which he has given about his Son. Whoever believes in the Son of God accepts this testimony. Whoever does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because they have not believed the testimony that God has given about his Son. And this is the testimony; God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life, whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.”

Do you really believe God’s testimony is greater?

3. Eternal Life Means we can ask questions and still know him who is true

1 John 5:18-20 - “We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the One who was born of God keeps them safe, and the evil one cannot harm them. We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one. We know also that the Son of God has come
and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true by being in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.”

How Do You Know that your Heart is connected to Jesus and you have eternal life?

Who Else’s Heart do you Hope will be Connected to Jesus and have eternal life?
