Matthew 13:33

He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed with three measures of flour until all the dough had risen.” [NET]

Some time ago I had a conversation with a young friend. I remember something he said with so much assertion. He said the rate at which things are going in the world, if Christ does not return in the next couple of decades, true Christianity will cease to exist on the face of the earth. I promptly responded that even if Christ does not return in the next 500 years, true Christianity will only have increased. I told him that “500 years ago, some people said the same thing you are saying today, but do you know what happened? Then, my forefathers and your forefathers were still hopeless African pagans who had never heard the gospel. As a mater of fact, the civilized Christian world did not even know that they existed. But there are now millions of Christians in Africa today.”

From today’s Bible text, we can see that Jesus likens the Kingdom to yeast that keeps increasing. The Kingdom of God will only expand and will never diminish (see Isaiah 9:7, Mat 13:31-32). The issue is with me and you; will we be agents the Lord uses or will we fail Him in our generation? Those who fulfill God’s purposes are those who first of all believe that it is possible. Those who have a defeated mentality cannot conquer any territory for the kingdom.

We are Christians; we walk by faith and not by sight. Walking by faith is walking based on God’s word. Walking by sight is walking based on happenings and the things that you see.

Let’s go into today determined to ignore the bad news and focus on the good news God has entrusted to us in this generation.

Ask the Lord to help you do your part in the kingdom expansion.
