Luke 13:18-19 Devotion by Stephen Taylor

Luke 13:18-19

Then Jesus asked, "What is the kingdom of God like? What shall I compare it to? It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his garden. It grew and became a tree, and the birds perched in its branches.”


Let me tell you, the Holy Spirit opened this parable up to me this morning, and I am going to do my best to relay what He showed me! The mustard seed is the smallest of all seeds, the least of the seeds, if you will, and Jesus came and made Himself the least of all to save us all, so Jesus is the seed. A seed must die for it to produce a plant or a tree. The man is God in this parable, and His garden is this world and the tomb in which Jesus was placed! When a tree grows out of the ground, it is, in essence, rising up from the ground, so the tree is the Resurrected Christ! And we are the birds who can come and find our rest, shelter, protection, and life in the arms of Christ!


Brothers and sisters, I’m not a pastor or trained in theology, but I do know that Jesus Christ saves and that He is real and alive today. I’m walking proof that my God saves and that He can redeem any and everyone who repents and turns from their sins and toward Him! It may seem overbearing or overwhelming, but I promise you that is just the enemy whispering lies into your ears to make you doubt the freedom found in Christ! If you are tired of flapping your wings and getting nowhere, then turn to Christ and build your nest in Him! I promise you it will be the only foundation that lasts for all eternity!


1 Corinthians 3:11 - For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.


God bless! I love you all! Glory, Honor, and Praise now and forever to Papa God, The Risen King, and the Holy Spirit!
