Redeemer Presbyterian Church Sermons
The Kingdom of God is not like the kingdoms of this world. Ordinary kingdoms come by conquest and therefore they are impossible to miss. However, when Jesus uses the metaphor of a tiny seed in order to describe God’s Kingdom, he shows how easy it can be to be oblivious to God’s Kingdom. Therefore, it can difficult to know whether one has entered God’s Kingdom. Jesus tells the parable of the sower in order to help individuals test whether or not they are truly in this most unlikely kingdom.
Additional scriptural references made in this sermon are: Matthew 11:2; Luke 9:57-58; Psalm 86:11.
