The Parable of the Sower and the Purpose of the Parable

"Listen! Behold, a sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seed fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured it. Other seed fell on rocky ground, where it did not have much soil, and immediately it sprang up, since it had no depth of soil. And when the sun rose, it was scorched, and since it had no root, it withered away. Other seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it yielded no grain. And other seeds fell into good soil and produced grain, growing up and increasing and yielding thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold." And he said, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear."

And when he was alone, those around him with the twelve asked him about the parables. And he said to them, "To you has been given the secret of the kingdom of God, but for those outside everything is in parables, so that "they may indeed see but not perceive, and may indeed hear but not understand, lest they should turn and be forgiven."

And he said to them, "Do you not understand this parable? How then will you understand all the parables? The sower sows the word. And these are the ones along the path, where the word is sown: when they hear, Satan immediately comes and takes away the word that is sown in them. And these are the ones sown on rocky ground: the ones who, when they hear the word, immediately receive it with joy. And they have no root in themselves, but endure for a while; then, when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately they fall away. And others are the ones sown among thorns. They are those who hear the word, but the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches and the desires for other things enter in and choke the word, and it proves unfruitful. But those that were sown on the good soil are the ones who hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold." ~ Mark 4:3-20

Evangelistic Outreach Ideas:

Evangelistic in that you are going out to the public, with the Gospel, using different methods and strategies in advancing the proclamation and dissemination of the glorious Good News of the Gospel.

Dog or Pet Ministry: Using a dog or a friendly and or well-trained animals in your evangelism outreaches, is a great way to break down some the natural barriers an unsaved person has, in regards to religion and also other related barriers, like suffering, etc. In addition, thanks to the ministry dog or pet, they come straight to you, helping the evangelist with getting a Gospel focused conversation started. Also, a well-trained dog, could be used to hand out Bibles and Gospel Tracts (maybe attached / rubber banded to a water bottle or something), or in a public Gospel presentations, by answering questions and doing "tricks", like "play dead", "beg", and "speak", for example.

Offering Free Refreshments: Most people, unless God has been working their heart, would just walk past an evangelistic Christian information table, but perhaps not on a cold winter day when you are offering free hot chocolate! By setting up this table with free litature and or Gospel tracts, and Bibles. And engaging people while you are preparing their drink, is a great way to start a conversation about the Good News of the Gospel and Jesus Christ. A quick tip to get the conversation started, is to ask questions and ask them for their opinions.

Ideas & Tips For Using Gospel Tracts:

The Use of Tracts by R. A. Torrey ~ American evangelist, pastor, educator, and writer. (Importance and advantages, purposes for which to use a tract, ideas on who should use tracts, how to use tracts, & suggestions as to the use of tracts)

Create specialized or tailor specific Gospel tracts for specific events, festivals, parades, or locations:

On August 28, 2013, citizens from across this country converged upon our nation's capital to commemorate and celebrate the historic March On Washington which occurred over 50 years ago on August 28, 1963.

For the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington, Gospel Tract Planet made a special Gospel tract honoring Martin Luther King Jr., and everyone seemed loved the Gospel tract. Thanks be to God, we were able to receive donations, and were able to hand out over 5,000 Gospel tracts. Since parking was going to be limited around the event on the National Mall, we stood near Smithsonian Metro Station, and handed out the Gospel tracts as people were exiting or entering the station. Everyone so loved the Gospel tracts, we could not see any hit the ground! Below is a short video and photos us handing out the Martin Luther King Jr. Gospel tracts:
