Not The Illustrations You Might Expect

Luke 13:18-21 — “Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? And whereunto shall I resemble it?…” In these verses we have two illustrations that Jesus gave to describe the kingdom of God. It might not seem so for those of us who are familiar with Jesus’ teaching, but these illustrations were really quite strange. They are not the analogies one would ordinarily use to describe “a kingdom!” So what was the message that Jesus was endeavouring to communicate? What’s the message for us today? That’s what we think about it in this sermon. We hope it encourages you in your walk with the Lord.
