Today’s Passage:

Matthew 13:24–30
[24] He put another parable before them, saying,
“The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field, [25] but while his men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. [26] So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared also. [27] And the servants of the master of the house came and said to him,
‘Master, did you not sow good seed in
your field? How then does it have weeds?’
[28] He said to them,
‘An enemy has done this.’
So the servants said to him,
‘Then do you want us to go and gather them?’
[29] But he said,
‘No, lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them. [30] Let both grow together until the harvest, and at harvest time I will tell the reapers,
“Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.”’”
The Gospel Is Dangerous;
Either To You Or Through You
● The Gospel Is Dangerous To You If You Do Not Know Christ

● Matthew 13:36-43
[36] Then he left the crowds and went into the house. And his
disciples came to him, saying,
“Explain to us the parable of the weeds of the field.”
[37] He answered,
“The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. [38] The field is the world, and the good seed is the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, [39] and the enemy who sowed them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are angels. [40] Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the end of the age. [41] The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers, [42] and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. [43] Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.”

○ Beware The Danger of Counterfeit Christianity

■ “Am I Playing Church?”
[31] He put another parable before them, saying,
“The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field. [32] It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.”
● The Gospel Is Dangerous Through You If You Are In Christ

○ The Gospel Is Dangerous To The Status Quo Of The World

○ Counterfeit Christianity Has Little Impact On The World
[33] He told them another parable. “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven that a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened.”
