… in us and for us!
Jesus, in teaching about the Kingdom of God,
… told these two parables,
What is the kingdom of God like? And to what shall I compare it?
It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and put in his garden;
and it grew and became a large tree,
and the birds of the air nested in its branches.
Luke 13 18
To what shall I liken the kingdom of God? It is like leaven,
which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal
till it was all leavened.
Luke 13 20
These parables may seem to have little to do with each other,
however, Jesus used them to explain …
the potential of God’s kingdom in our lives!
As in a mustard seed …
God also put great potential and ability in us
… that if we recognise it, use it and develop it,
it will not only grow and benefit us,
… but has the potential to touch the lives of others!
As with the leaven,
which has the potential to develop and grow on its own,
so, as we live by faith in Him and His blessings in us,
God is able to make His plans for our lives
… grow and develop into the fullness of His blessings in us.
Yes … God created you in His image and likeness,
with all the potential to live a successful life.
The questions however is…
What are you doing about that and with that?
