Pastor’s Weekly Note

How to Get Ahead In the Kingdom of God

“Listen carefully: Unless a grain of wheat is buried in the ground, dead to the world, it is never any more than a grain of wheat.  But if it is buried, it sprouts and reproduces itself many times over.  In the same way, anyone who holds on to life just as it is destroys that life.  But if you let it go, reckless in your love, you’ll have it forever, real and eternal”.  John 12:24-25 (The Message)

Jesus was an improbable king and he calls us to life in his improbable kingdom.  It’s upside down living – where the weak become strong and those who are willing to die can live.  Most of us have learned the rules that make the world go round.  We have figured out how to get ahead when we have to… but getting ahead in the kingdom of God is a different matter altogether.  Our text this week is Matthew 21:23-32.  In it Jesus reveals his formula for hopeful kingdom living!   Read it before you come.  I know you will enjoy!  See you Sunday.
