Mark 4:26-34 June 17, 2015

Posted by Ventura Dreamer in Blogroll.

How does Jesus describe the kingdom of God?  Here are two within two paragraphs:
1) After seeds are scattered, some sprout and ripen. The good ones are cut down and harvested.
2) Like a tiny mustard seed that is sown and grows into a shrub big enough for birds to nest in.

The gospel writer notes that Jesus used parables to explain difficult concepts to the masses, but privately he explained everything to the disciples.

The devotion writer notes that we “simply participate” in what God plants. We can’t control much until it sprouts. We have to exercise patience as we watch the kingdom grow.

Harrell Nation, Jr., the devotion writer, states that the reason he believes in God is life itself. Jesus wants us to see with eyes of faith what God has planted. It grows through Christ!  Christ in us brings kingdom life to reality as we feed the hungry, comfort the hurting and help others to follow Jesus.
