Walking in Fruitfulness - Part 2 - David Mitts

"For "WHO HAS KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD THAT HE MAY INSTRUCT HIM?" But we have the mind of Christ." 1 Co 2:16 (NKJV)

We have been looking at how to maximize results in our lives.  We want exponential change.  This is called by Yeshua the 30-60-100 fold return on the seed of God’s Word or His promises to us.
Listen to Walking in Fruitfulness - Part 2

We looked at Mark 4 as the master parable of increase. Let’s turn there and read from verse 1. And again He began to teach by the sea. And a great multitude was gathered to Him, so that He got into a boat and sat in it on the sea; and the whole multitude was on the land facing the sea.

Over the last few weeks, we have been pressing in for lives that operate in the 30-60-100 fold fruitfulness in the Lord. We have looked at heart attitudes that preclude our bearing fruit in our lives the way that we could if our hearts were the fertile pure soil that the Lord would have them be.

"The sower sows the word. And these are the ones by the wayside where the word is sown. When they hear, Satan comes immediately and takes away the word that was sown in their hearts. These likewise are the ones sown on stony ground who, when they hear the word, immediately receive it with gladness; and they have no root in themselves, and so endure only for a time.
