SAA Notes

Jesus was very concerned that we understand about the Kingdom of Heaven. Why do you think He was so bull-doggish about this topic?

SJA Notes

* Dear God, thank You for teaching us about Your kingdom.

“The kingdom of heaven …”

How backwards and upside-down seems this kingdom that Jesus speaks of!

The weeds (people of the evil one) are left to grow amongst the grain (people of God’s kingdom). How strange this can seem.

The mustard seed (the kingdom) grows from an insignificant-seeming seed into a tree that brings benefit to all around.

The yeast (the kingdom) completely changes the nature of the flour.

Jesus teaches us of His kingdom, and how it is very different to any other sort of kingdom.

What a privilege it is to be a part of it!

* Dear Father in Heaven,

Thank You for calling us into Your kingdom.

Thank You that we look forward to shining like the sun in Your kingdom fully revealed in glory. Where You will be our light, we reflecting You without spot or blemish.
