Jesus said the Kingdom of God is like a mustard seed; it starts out as a small thing, but it grows and grows until it gives a home to the birds of the air.
Can we believe a new day is coming? As surely as the sun rises over the horizon God is creating a new world.
Jesus said the Kingdom of God is like that someone who casts seed on the ground, and then sleeps and wakes, day after day, while the earth produces the fruit from the seed that was cast.
We do not know how God works out the fullness of redemption. But we know we are partners in that work.
Praise the name of the Lord who still cares for the world!
Praise the name of the Lord who leads with power and grace.
