Mark 4:30-32

Show me Jesus, Father, and show others the Jesus in me.


FAITHFUL FARMER – Issue 1 Vol 1, Article 3

“Small Commencement Brings Huge Results”

In the movie called “Simon Birch,” a young boy, who is extra little for his age, grows up with a firm belief that God has a purpose for his life, believing he’s been called to be a hero.  Indeed, a tragic incident occurs and it is Simon who ultimately helps several lives to be saved.  He was able to do so BECAUSE he was so small.  Although he was born just a tiny little boy, he grew to have a huge heart and to make an immense impact on several other lives.

You spoke in this passage of a mustard seed, Lord.  One of the smallest seeds in nature, when planted it can become a big treelike shrub.  (Some have even been found to be about ten feet high.)*  You likened this seed’s beginnings and results to Your kingdom.  In this portion of Your life on earth, Jesus, You were just beginning Your ministry here.  You began, with twelve ordinary men, what would grow to be Your expansive Church that it is today around the globe.  Thank You for drawing me in to be part of this growth from such a small commencement.  Keep on making me just like Jesus.  Amen.

* Walter W. Wessel, Mark, The Expositor’s Bible Commentary, Zondervan, p. 653.
