Read Matthew 13.31-35
He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed.” (Matthew 13.31)
THE KINGDOM IS LIKE SPRAY INSULATING FOAM
I needed to fill in some small cracks in order to finish insulating the house. I used a can of spray foam insulation. Now if you’ve never used this stuff before you‘re in for a surprise. When I gave it what I thought was a little squirt, it not only filled the crack but started growing so fast it went half way down the wall and expanded to about a 100 times its size. Wow! So when it says, “Apply in small amounts,” it means small amounts. The Kingdom of God grows the same way. It only takes a few fired up “Jesus Followers” sharing the good news and living an authentic Christian life to change whole communities. Jesus guarantees that the Kingdom will grow. We just need to roll up our sleeves, apply a little faith and start sharing the gospel in word and deed.
How do you see the Kingdom growing in your own heart? How do you see it growing in your community?
