“God’s Kingdom is Experienced by those with Deep Faith”
3rd Sunday in Kingdomtide
A middle-aged mother always complained that her grocery store didn’t carry eggs in packages of six—just by the dozen. She would write to the grocery owner time and again about her complaint. Then one day, her wish came true. She walked into the grocery store and found fresh eggs in cartons of six. He then told her family upon returning home, “hey guys, know what I was so excited to find eggs in packs of six that I bought two of them!”
Later she figured out that that defeated the purpose! Sometimes we do things that contradict what we want to do! Similar to Jesus’ plan to go to a place where no one would recognize Him, today’s gospel account tells us otherwise, upon His arrival to the place, He was easily recognized.
In today’s message, we’re going to look at the surprising places where you can find a very notable faith experience, how it will persevere, and how this woman turned a refusal into a promise.
