More of the Insiders and the Outsiders
Scripture: Mark 4:21–4:34
We will see more about God's sovereignty and man's responsibility in entering the Kingdom of God, and also more of the Lord's parable. Jesus’ followers consisted of true hearers who embraced the gospel. What was hidden from the unbelievers, He was explaining privately to His own disciples. Believers today share that same privilege of knowing the truth. Though the Lord Jesus has ascended to heaven, His Spirit indwells and illuminates the hearts of all who belong to Him. Thus, every Christian has the privilege of knowing and understanding the truth, a reality that enables them to be fruitful hearers.
