THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS LIKE:
Mat 13:31-47 The kingdom of heaven is like: a mustard seed, yeast, a treasure hidden in a field, a man looking for fine pearls, a net
REMEMBER: Phil 3
Phil 3:3 We worship God through His Spirit, and our pride is in Christ Jesus We do not put trust in ourselves or anything we can do.
Phil 3:4-6 “although I might be able to put trust in myself.” “ No one could find fault with the way I obeyed the law of Moses.”
Phil 3:7-8 Those things were important to me, but now I think they are worth nothing because of Christ….. I think that all things are worth nothing compared with the greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. I know they are worthless trash. This allows me to have Christ and to belong to him.
Phil 3:9 I am right with God, not because I followed the law, but because I believed in Christ. God uses my faith to make me right with him.
Phil 3:10-11 I want to know Christ and the power that raised him from the dead.... I have hope that I myself will be raised from the dead.

Phil 3:16-17 we should continue following the truth we already have. … All of you should try to follow my example and to copy those who live the way we showed youRemember:
Mat 7:21-23 “Not everyone who says to me, “LORD, LORD,” will enter the kingdom of heaven (15-20 Jesus talks about False Prophets)
Mat 13:24-30 The kingdom of heaven is like a man who planted good seed in his field…. 36-43 Jesus explains the meaning (41 they will gather out of his kingdom all who cause sin and who do evil)
Mat 13:51 Jesus: “Do you understand all these things?”
Mat 18:1-7 “ Who is greatest in the kingdom of heaven ? (5-7 “causes”)
Mat 18:23-35 “The kingdom of heaven is like a king who decided to collect the money owed him. 33 You should have showed mercy to that other servant, just as I showed mercy to you. 35 This king did what my heavenly Father will do to you if you do not forgive …..
