John the Baptist declared, “Bear fruit in keeping with repentance.” (Matthew 3:8). When biblical repentance has taken place in the heart of a convert there is evidence- the fruit of salvation. The evidence that an apple seed has been sown into the heart of the earth (which we cannot see) is evident by the fruit it bears. So it is with the Christian. The dual aspects of salvation: regeneration and sanctification are inseparable. The Parable of the Soils in Matthew 13 as taught by Jesus is the central theme for this sermon.
