The kingdom of God, His reign and rule on the earth, through His people, His church, is meant to grow!
He put another parable before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field. It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.”
He told them another parable. “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven that a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened.”
Never resign yourself to the idea that this world is just getting worse, there’s nothing we can do. The people who do bad may get worse, but never fear, the gospel will not fail. We can be salt and light in this world and God will change people’s hearts, we just need to be faithful!
Never give up, never give in, the kingdom WILL grow… Jesus WILL build his church. Count on it!
