The Kingdom is Like…Part5: Separation & the Son

The Kingdom is Like…Part5: Separation & the Son

We are thankful that you have come to worship with us today. As we come to the end of Matthew 13, we are reminded of the divide that has taken place. There are those who hear every word and see every work of Christ, but who remain unchanged. They may admire his teaching and stand astonished at his power, but they refuse to come in faith and repentance into his kingdom. And then there are those who are called disciples. Their faith is far from perfect, and their understanding is incomplete at best, but they know that this Jesus is the promised messiah and they are willing to lay everything down in order to follow him. As Jesus closes this teaching section, he does so with a parable about a dragnet. But how does this warning about the future apply to the disciples and us? How does the unfolding of the narrative after that parable illustrate the truths of that parable? We hope that you will reach out if there are questions that we can answer for you, or if there is a way that we can be praying for you specifically.

And he said to them, ‚ÄúTherefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a master of a house, who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.

Matthew 13:52
