Sunday Preview

February 8, 2013

My sermon this Sunday is called, “Parables that Release
Potential” from Matthew 13:24-43. There are three parables we will look at in this passage that each reveal a different dynamic of the Kingdom of heaven. In these three parables Jesus said that the Kingdom of heaven is like a man, a mustard seed, and leaven. The man Jesus describes has an enemy, yet the man is not unduly disturbed when his enemy sows weeds in his field. This man has wisdom, understanding and compassion. He lets things play out because he has a plan to deal with the enemy and bring blessings to his servants.

I have met some people lately who are sowing little seeds that have tremendous power. I want to tell you a bit about each of them on Sunday because of the impact they made on my life. The Lord has given each of us seeds of truth that have potential to transform people’s lives. If we sow these seeds faithfully we can release the potential of God’s kingdom and reap great rewards. I’m also blessed to have a wife who bakes wonderful bread. The aroma of fresh baked bread fills our house each week. Jesus understood that one secret of great bread is the way the right amount of leaven is worked into the dough.

I’m hoping we have a mix of worship, prayer and the word this weekend in our services that will enrich our lives with a taste of heaven.
