Pastor Craig Beeker shares how the series of parables plant powerful windows into the Kingdom of Heaven. The precious gift of God’s Son and his grace to welcome us into the family of God should inspire and challenge us to claim that promise and power in even the darkest days. By being a believer with one foot in the Kingdom of God, we help share the Gospel to those who do not yet know God.
