The paradox of the "already but not yet" kingdom of God is that Jesus has already redeemed the world, and yet we live with daily reminders that our world is still broken. Amidst continual pain and suffering, we question whether God really is present and moving in our lives. More than simply conceptualizing the gospel, we yearn for tangible experiences of God's grace and mercy. But even when we don't see it, tangible experiences of God's power exist all around us. We can choose to believe in His power and the work He is doing, and in doing so we cultivate a mustard seed of faith that can grow and blossom and overflow beyond our imagination.
