Topic: New Testament Scripture: Matthew 13:24–13:43
Spending just a few minutes on pretty much any news website will soon have you thinking that the Devil is winning. There is so much wrong with the world, and that's all we seem to hear about. But thankfully, there is another side to the coin.
This week, we get three more parables to encourage us about the reality of the Kingdom of God. The Kingdom of God is big, and growing, and nothing will stop it, or prevail against it.
Jesus spoke in parables to sift out peoples' hearts, and so the encouragement also comes with a warning. And the consequences of not heeding this warning are eternally catastrophic.
