Glimpses of the Kingdom of Heaven

Open Your Bible

Matthew 13:1-57, Luke 16:14-17

In light of the day’s reading, pause to reflect on the specific areas you long to see made new and how Jesus’s ministry calls us to join in that restoration. Let these shape your prayers today.

In His teaching, Jesus used stories called parables to describe the kingdom of heaven. These stories were told with a purpose, using memorable word pictures to initiate conversation and point to a larger truth. 

After you’ve read, spend some time in prayer about the kind of kingdom Jesus taught about. Comment/share with the community anything that stood out to you or encouraged you from the reading or your time in prayer.

    Why do we pay for a subscription if we don’t get the whole study?

    Angels will separate the wheat and the tares in the kingdom.

    For those looking for day 23, I noticed in the paper study guide, day 23 is ‘The First of New Creation’, which is on Day 20 in the app. Day 20 in the app is also Grace Day. Hope this helps.

    I appreciate this focus on the Parables. Seeds are not just sown once but in different seasons. As believers we go through different growth cycles. Some healthy and close go God, others filled with distraction or even rebellion. It seems we can use these parables to measure our hearts and learn how we are called to live.

    Is anyone else’s app not working correctly? The days are showing up out of order or not at all for me.

    I thought the seed that was thrown among thorns was someone who started to believe but then stopped. However reading it today I noticed it is not a nonbeliever but a believer that is unfruitful because of worldly distractions. That terrifies me the most because I can fall into that category sometimes.

      I noticed that too Karianne!

      Same! Thank you for sharing this important distinction that I’ve missed all these year. God’s word is living and active!
