The 5 Points about the Kingdom of God, Day 5

“We are following Jesus and sharing His love by praying, serving and encouraging all people so they may be in a closer relationship with God.”

Matthew 13:24-36 || Kingdom Parables: 5 Points

The 5 Points about the Kingdom of God:

  1. God Created Good - Satan brings Sin

  2. Removing Sin Removes all who are - So God forgives sin to free all

    who will

  3. The Good are Gathered - The Bad are Burned

  4. The Kingdom Breaks through in You to Break Forth from You

  5. Give it All to Get it All

Day 5 - Point 5 Devotion

Give it All to Get it All (Matthew 13:44-46)

44 “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found

it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that


45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. 46

When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and

bought it.

Both of these parables illustrate someone giving all they had to possess all they

ever wanted. If you truly desire to be a healthy and mature tree leading people to

Christ and bearing good fruit, you need to be willing to surrender and give up

things that may be getting in the way.

Question: Is there anything that God is pointing out to you as something that is

getting in the way of you doing more fully what God desires for you? When you

identify that thing, you need to do four things.

  1. Pray: Pray God to help you let go of “it”.

  2. Plan: Plan how to remove “it”. Maybe set goals on what changes you may

    need to make to get to where you want to be. This often will take

    discussion with key people in your life.

  3. Accountability: Set goals and figure out who or what is going to help you

    make this a reality and make it sustainable.

  4. Act: Put it all into action and get started.
