Churches that Multiply
The picture above is a familiar sight in Bucharest. Nature vs. man. It takes a lot of time, money and effort to control the natural spread of plant life (as you know if you’ve tried to kill weeds). Many Scripture illustrations relate spiritual life to organic growth: Vine and branches, wheat and tares, the mustard seed. Jesus intended the growth of His kingdom to be natural and organic, not formulaic and controlled.
- Pray that His church here in Bucharest will break free of man-made trappings and multiply fruitfully!
- Pray that God will lead His people to engage society at all levels and not hide behind church walls.
- Pray that healthy kingdom DNA will lead to exponential church growth.
“He told them another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches."
~ Matthew 13:31-32
