The Mustard Seed Parable At The End Of A Painful Week

Sermon of Sunday, July 24, 2011

Preacher: Francis Noordanus

Scriptures: Matthew 13:31-33.

Introduction:

Francis traces his reflection and preparation to preach on the Parable of the Mustard Seed in a week which ended with the death of a former church member and a shocking terrorist attack in Norway.  The words of the Jesus focus us on mystery of how seeds of faith take hold in the human heart.   Seeds for good plants and seeds for evil plants.  One man is celebrated as an illustration of the fruitfulness of a life lived in the Kingdom of Heaven while another's terrible deeds are considered as the fruit of evil seeds that took hold in his heart.
