The Church Grows: The Kingdom of Heaven is Like a Treasure and a Net

Having reviewed the great events of the life of Christ, the second half of the Christian Year gives us opportunity to focus on Christ's Church. The members of Christ's Church live and work in an unbelieving world. If Christians are good wheat, they are surrounded on all sides by weeds. However, rather than growing impatient and rather than taking things into our own hands, the Church's members confidently wait for Christ's judgment on the last day. Then the wheat will be gathered into the barn. Then the weeds will be thrown into the fire.
