Pastor Mark Brown Proverbs 4:23 Jesus gave the parable of 4 types of ground that sower plants seed on. Our heart is the ground and the Word is the seed. Our heart can be found in any one of those conditions. We must be diligent to value the seed and the soil so we can be fruitful.
Pastor Mark Brown Judges 16:17 Judges 16:19 Samson's strength came from his seven locks of consecrations. The first lock of consecration the church must uphold is the Word of God. That is the Foundation of our Salvation. Our stance on the Word of God distinguishes us from being weak as others.

Pastor Mark Brown Luke 8:11 Do you have the truth? So what. If you have the truth you ought to be thankful, but holding the truth & withholding the truth is wrong. What truth are you sowing?

Ephesians 6:17 The pieces of armor we have discuss have a defensive element to them. The Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God is a powerful weapon for us to advance. The Word is not meant to hurt but help.
