The Kingdom Breaks through in You to Break Forth from You (Matthew
The Parable of the Mustard Seed and the Yeast.
“He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed,
which a man took and planted in his field. 32 Though it is the smallest of all
seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree,
so that the birds come and perch in its branches.”
33 He told them still another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a
woman took and mixed into about sixty pounds of flour until it worked all through
the dough.” 34 Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he did not
say anything to them without using a parable. 35 So was fulfilled what was
spoken through the prophet: “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things
hidden since the creation of the world.”
Through faith and prayer the wall that separates heaven and earth begins to thin
until the kingdom of God pierces through into your life. It only takes a pin hole for
the Kingdom of God to be planted in you and to grow until it becomes a mature
tree where so many others find nurture and care and rest. In that space their
faith grows until the kingdom of God can pierce through into them as well. This is
the good and reproductive work of disciples making disciples.
Question: Have you allowed that seed to grow and mature in you? If so, how
are you spreading your branches to invite God’s beloved who both do and do not
yet know Him to a place where they may find rest and experience God?
