“To what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable can we use to present it? It is like a mustard seed that when sown in the ground, even though it is the smallest of all the seeds in the ground—when it is sown, it grows up, becomes the greatest of all garden plants, and grows large branches so that the wild birds can nest in its shade.” (Mark 4:30–32)
Those who do not have a relationship with God reject the principles of the kingdom of God. Satan, the god of this present age, does not want us to think about eternal matters. He only wants us to devote our time, talent, and treasure to the consumable things of this life which will have no value in eternity.
However, when Son Power takes root in the heart of one who receives Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, they begin to experience transformation into a new creature. This transformation brings about new life, new behavior, new interests, and new goals. Son Power penetrates all aspects of our life. Over time, more and more of our life is brought into alignment with God’s will.
What a transformation! Think about it … kingdom goals, objectives, and mission come to possess our life in such a way that even the “birds can nest in its shade.” Previous interests and endeavors fade away. All of our life is now a nesting place for kingdom endeavors.
Today, ask yourself:
In what ways does my life reflect the fact that the Holy Spirit is in control of my life?
