It’s interesting that when Jesus preached, it wasn’t the salvation message per se, it was the kingdom message.  And in the Lord’s prayer, it again was the kingdom message that was in the prayer “Let your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”  The kingdom is God’s will in heaven and on earth.  And what Jesus is saying in these parables is that while it is so small, it will eventually permeate all things.  I think is something we are seeing today as we get within arm’s reach of fulfilling the great commission.
