Standout Verse:

Luke 13:18-19

“Then He said, “What is the kingdom of God like?  And to what shall I compare it?  It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and put in his garden; and It grew and became a large tree and the birds of the air came and nested in it’s branches.”

THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS ALIVE AND THRIVING.  Our Heavenly Father heals broken lives, rescues people from sin and death and transforms us into people that live lives that produce BEAUTIFUL FRUIT.  When the Lord comes into a persons’ heart and really changes them, the effects can readily be seen and the impact of what He has done multiplies.  When a person experiences the life-saving power of the Lord, it is impossible not to testify of His goodness.  The word of this spreads and continues to change lives around us.

We live in a world that is rapidly perishing and sin is multiplying, ensnaring and devastating more and more people every day, but, the GOOD NEWS is this: just as sin and destruction are on the move, SO IS THE KINGDOM OF GOD!  We are at a cross roads in history where people need the Lord in their lives more than EVER before. God’s miraculous, life-changing, life-GIVING power is contagious because IT’S REAL AND IT WORKS!  The fields are white with harvest!  Let this great news encourage and inspire us to share our faith and watch it spread like a mustard seed!
