”What is the kingdom of God like and to what shall I compare it?” [Luke 13:17]
Seeking this Kingdom and God’s righteousness will mean that”…all things shall be added unto you”. [Matthew 6:33] Talk about increase! There’s no limit to what God can do! ”He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” [Romans 8:32]
Luke compares this kingdom to a seed that became a tree; you have sown your faith in love and it affects every area of life. ”It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal till it was all leavened.” [Luke 13:21} Everything it touches increases.
Yet all riches of earth pale in significance to the “unsearchable riches of Christ” [Ephesians 1-3]. “Unsearchable” literally means riches that can never be explored. You not only cannot count or measure them, but you can form no estimate of them; and you not only can form no estimate of them, but you never can get to the end of your investigation. There is a boundless continent, a world, a universe of riches that still lies before you, when you have carried your search to the limits of possibility. [A.T.Pierson]
Some people are led through their blessings to realize the love of their heavenly Father; others are led through suffering love to know the inexhaustible riches of Christ.
