The Kingdom of Heaven is like… Part Three

Matthew 13:33 (ESV)
33  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.”

Jesus had a vision of a subtle but invasive Kingdom.  His rule in human hearts may not make many headlines but it works its way through all of society.

Think of all of horrible acts performed all around the world every day.  But then imagine if you took out all noble, sacrificial, loving, compassionate choices.  True, not every good act is performed by a Christian.  But every good act does point to a blueprint of a preferred good  — that happens to line up with God’s design for how people are supposed to relate.  And billions of Christ followers do perform good life giving actions and give God the glory

As leaders, who can you encourage to be steadfast, drawing of the grace giving ever present Holy Spirit, so they may be God’s salt and light in a dangerous dark place?
