What is Leavening Your Life? (Matthew 13:33)Pastor Jared Shumate, August 4, 2019
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Leaven is an interesting little substance. It's so small and almost insignificant. And yet, just a small amount of it will affect the whole limp of dough. It's grows and grows until it consumes. The bakers among you know it's power.
The same parable applies to our life. A small, unknown,tiny thing can affect your whole heart and life. But it's not always a bad thing. The Gospel can leaven your life. It starts small and grows and grows until it completely consumes you.
But, if we're honest, all of us do not fall into that category. Instead, it's the leaven of sin that affects us. Today we ask you to examine your heart and your life. Is there something small, almost insignificant, maybe unknown to everyone else around you affecting your life? Maybe you rationalize it as "just a small sin." But it will grow and fester and control your life!
What is leavening your heart today?

33Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened. (KJV)
