As we continue through the soils of the parable of the sower, we see the stony ground Christian, who shoots up quickly, but they do not have deep enough roots to endure persecution. The stony ground will receive the gospel with joy and gladness; they have a great new, first love zeal for the church. However, when tribulation comes when they implement the word of God in their life, they wither under the sun of persecution. As the church, we need to understand how vulnerable these new Christian converts are and teach them the word of God to provide strength and stability and deep roots to remain strong in temptation.
