The Parable of the Hidden Treasure and the Parable of the Pearl of Great Value

MATTHEW 13:44–46 44“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. 45Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, 46who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.” Two of the parables that Jesus told about the kingdom of heaven…

The Parable of the Mustard Seed and the Parable of the Leaven

MATTHEW 13:31–33 31He 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. 32It 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.” 33He told them another parable. “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven that…

The Parable of the Weeds

MATTHEW 13:24 He put another parable before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field . . .” All of us have seen evil in the lives of people, in society, and in the world. We have also likely seen injustice take place, where evil is not punished or put in check. There is so much corruption in the lives of people and also in different spheres of society.…

The Parable of the Sower

MATTHEW 13:1–8 1That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat beside the sea. 2And great crowds gathered about him, so that he got into a boat and sat down. And the whole crowd stood on the beach. 3And he told them many things in parables, saying: “A sower went out to sow. 4And as he sowed, some seeds fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured them. 5Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they…

Carrying Out the Great Commission

And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Jesus used kingdom language when He said that all authority in…

Advancing God’s Kingdom through Discipleship

God’s Remnant

ISAIAH 10:20 In that day the remnant of Israel and the survivors of the house of Jacob will no more lean on him who struck them, but will lean on the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth. Isaiah spoke this prophecy after God had already pronounced judgment on His people because of their pride, arrogance, self-centeredness, and acts of social injustice. To bring judgment on Israel, God used a different nation: Assyria. God would then punish Assyria as…

God’s Spirit

ISAIAH 11:1–2 1There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse, and a branch from his roots shall bear fruit. 2And the Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD. Isaiah here prophesied about the kind of rule the Messiah will bring when He comes. His final word is not judgment, but restoration. Isaiah said that…

God’s Holiness

ISAIAH 6:1–3 1In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple. 2Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3And one called to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!”…

God’s Passion

ISAIAH 2:6–8 6For you have rejected your people, the house of Jacob, because they are full of things from the east and of fortune-tellers like the Philistines, and they strike hands with the children of foreigners. 7Their land is filled with silver and gold, and there is no end to their treasures; their land is filled with horses, and there is no end to their chariots. 8Their land is filled with idols; they bow down to the work of their…
