THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW
Part 35: Mustard Seed and Leaven
Jesus was a master storyteller, utilizing everyday
items to convey messages about the Kingdom of God. He likened the
Kingdom of Heaven to a mustard seed and said that a tiny amount of
faith is all it takes for believers to do supernatural works. It is
not the size of your faith, but your sincerity in believing that all
things are possible that makes things happen with the Lord. The
God-man also spoke about yeast and what occurs when it is mixed with
a lump of dough. Leaven is like sin and can spread quickly. But
Jesus also pointed out that the Kingdom of Heaven would spread to
the whole world and used the illustration of leaven to reinforce the
power of the Gospel in relation to yeast permeating a batch of
dough. The Son of God spoke in parables because the majority of the
people hardened their hearts toward His message, rejected Him as the
Messiah, and were not open to the treasures of heaven.
