Listen to the Message

Luke 13:18-19
We can live pleasing to God.
He was referring to the investment of one's faith.
"It is imminent. It's happening right now."
It's already but not yet.
Wherever Jesus is.
"The kingdom of God is within you."
"Thy kingdom come"
1. God's work in your life begins right where you are.
  • We must not wait to do, we must do with what we have!
  • He was thinking big and acting big.
  • It starts right where you are.
  • "Jesus, you are Lord. Thy kingdom come ... in my life, every day."
  • But we can know what the next step of obedience should be.
2. God's work in your life requires consistent care.
  • It grows when we tend to it on a daily basis.
  • "Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." (Matthew 17:20)
  • It's a process of cultivation that causes the seed to grow.
  • What am I doing to prepare for growth?
3. God's work in your life is intended to be a blessing to others.
  • Notice that the plant was not just for the farmer's benefit.
  • It will also be a blessing to others.
  • It all begins with a tiny seed.
  • You have one life to invest.
  • Where will your investment go?
  • While your past may have been difficult, your future can be promising.
