The 5 Points about the Kingdom of God, Day 2

“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 2 - Point 2 Devotion

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

will (Matthew 13:28b-29)

28b …“The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull [the weeds] up?’

29 “ ‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may

uproot the wheat with them.

Because sin has tainted all of God’s good creation. To effectively remove

that sin would require destroying everything in which that sin was contained -

which includes you or me. (ref. Romans 3:23).

Instead of destroying sin, God has sought to forgive sin and restore his

kingdom one person at a time. (Ref. Ephesians 1:7, Acts 3:19, Matthew 26:28)

Question: God saves us the moment we receive His forgiveness. After that

moment Jesus sets us free, little by little, as we give over our hurts and areas of

sin. Is there anywhere in your life where you need healing or freedom, so that

the Kingdom of God can become even more alive in you? (To help in this you

can pray Psalm 139:23-24)
