Ministry, leadership, discipleship, the local church and the deep riches of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor? Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.
Today, share with someone what God shows you in Matthew 13. Lord, give me ears that hear You, eyes that see You, and a heart that understands You (13:15-16). Don't let me be too hard for Your Word to sink in (13:19), or too shallow for Your Word to remain in me (13:20), or so in love with the world that Your Word has no room to grow in me (13:22). Make me rich, deep soil that Your Word takes root in and produces fruit (13:23). You are worth the loss of everything to me (13:44-45). Let me share today very aware that a day is coming when the lost will have no more opportunity to choose You and Your kingdom (13:49).
