Pastor Howard continued his discussion referencing Mark 4: 26-41. Jesus speaks of the parable of the growing seed. Saying his is what the Kingdom of God in life. A man scatters seed on the ground day and night. The seed sprouts and grows but the man doesn’t know how. Soon the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.
Jesus even spoke a parable of the mustard seed showing what the Kingdom of God is like. The mustard seed is the smallest seed you plant in the ground. Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants. Jesus spoke the word to them using those parables.
Jesus was telling people to have faith. There is also a need to grow in faith through reading and learning the word of God. Finding out the wonder of Jesus and spreading the word.
It’s not up to us to save people, but to show them our Savior.
