Romans 8:18-25; Psalm 126; Luke 13:18-21

The Kingdom of God is like …

Jesus describes the Kingdom of God with two images: a germinating mustard seed which grows into a shady tree; and yeast which leavens flour into dough. In Romans, Paul describes the wounded creation – “and all of us who possess the first-fruits of the Spirit” – as “groaning in one great act of giving birth” to Christ’s Kingdom. These images – seed, yeast, giving birth – express the power of God’s grace working invisibly and continuously, germinating “the first-fruits of the Spirit” within creation.

Father, may your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
