Growth is a powerful thing. And the New Testament tells us that the Kingdom of God is growing. Jesus said it was like a seed that would grow into a great tree. It has broken into this world now, but so many people hardly notice that the Holy Spirit has sown it. There will come a day, though, when its unstoppable growth topples every earthly kingdom, and the King’s majesty will be seen by all.
We’re back to talking about idols again. Idols are all those things that we make biggest in our lives. The things we put before God. The things in which we seek identity, security and signiﬁcance. The things which, as Tim Keller puts it, ‘…control us as we seek them; disappoint us as we ﬁnd them; and devastate us when we lose them.’
