Genesis 25:19-34Romans 8:1-11 • Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23
We are the struggle in this present day. We hear that the children struggle together.
There is a frenzied pause, calling two brothers, one chosen the other not. One a forthright conniver, the other surrender the birthright. God chooses to save the world through the unlikely.
Two nations, God chose what is weak in the world. Isaac prayers for barren Rebecca, who conceives. The last are first. There is therefore now no condemnation. We receive the promise.
Jesus the promised one went out of the house, spread the seed. Jesus challenges planting planting and spreading the gospel. The kingdom is like a tree that grows so enormous, imagine everyone belonging.
The seeds of belonging fell on good soil. Beyond restrain, discernment, make room. We are reborn, in the glimpse of tragedy and triumph, redeem the world, the realm is thriving in us, grow together until the harvest.
