WEDNESDAY 2ND DECEMBER, 2020
THEME: Minute But Great
PASSAGE: Matthew 13:31-35
HYMN: MHB 649 THERE is a land of pure delight
MEMORY VERSE: Matt 13:33-34 “Another parable He spoke to them: “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal till it was all leavened.”
Jesus Christ, sitting in a ship on the sea of Galilee spoke “many things to the multitude in parables” about the mysteries of heaven. He compared the Kingdom of God or the Kingdom of Heaven to two things, “mustard seed” and “leaven”, which one could easily overlook because they were so infinitesimal and insignificant in perspectives. But these two turned out to be great when properly utilized.
Brother/Sister, do you even consider the Kingdom of Heaven/the Kingdom of God significant to you compared with the affairs of this world? The beauty of this world will fade away one day and we shall face realities of the Kingdom of Heaven. For instance, Enoch was translated to heaven after living in this world of sin for 365 years (Gen. 5:21-24) and has been living in heaven for more than 5,000 years ever since. The Kingdom of God should be paramount to us in our day-to-day life. Our eyes should focus on it. We should live it.
Christianity is not a religion that is a fiction. Our God is not abstract; He is the Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omniscience. Christians need to have an understanding of his or her future destination, whether heaven or hell. (John 14:4) We don’t need to be disturbed by the day-to-day occurrences. Rather, our mind should focus on God and His love towards us. We should know that we are the light of the world (Matt. 5:14) as light cannot be hidden. Let us, therefore, live every minute of our lives for Christ in all ways. Let us increase the velocity of preaching the gospel and by so doing we propagate the Kingdom of God.
PRAYER: Gracious Father, help me to focus on the Kingdom of Heaven rather than on the mundane things of this world in Jesus’ name. Amen.
