Mark 4:31, “It grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants.”
It takes a faith only the size of a tiny mustard seed to believe in the atoning work of Christ to ensure salvation and secure entrance into God’s kingdom. God made His plan that simple. But salvation is only the start of our journey with God. It is the ground upon which our faith takes root. Yet, too often after realizing the assurance of eternity, people will put their faith on a shelf to collect dust until it is needed at the pearly gates.
Faith is not intended to stagnate, but to flourish and to grow. The Lord reminds us that the mustard seed begins as the smallest seed. “Yet, when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants” (Mark 4:32).
God desires to give us a dynamic life of faith, one that mirrors the life of our Savior. He expects us to drop our mustard seed of faith into the fertile soil of the cross so it can be nourished by the blood of the Lamb and sustained by the Light of the world.
Let God grow your faith into one of the “largest plants” in His Garden.
