Colossians 1: 6a Just as in the whole world it is bearing fruit and growing,
Have you ever heard of a plant called Kudzu? It came from Japan and was introduced in the US at the 1976 World’s fair in Philadelphia. Intended by well meaning agricultural scientists as a cover crop, forage, ornamental, it quickly became a monster covering everything with it’s tendril like growth. During the presidency of Jimmy Carter, in three short years kudzu had become a real problem for farmers and homeowners in the Southern United States.
So what does that have to do with the growth of the Gospel across the world? The comparison, although of differing values should be clear. America was ripe for the “invasion” of kudzu just as the world has always been ripe and ready for the “Good News” of Jesus Christ despite the best efforts of -fill in the blank- liars, devils, idiots, drunkards, or fools to prevent the spread of this “invasive” thought: that man can be redeemed from the life of sin because of the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus, and that those who believe and follow Jesus are rewarded with eternal life. God’s plan is going to be fulfilled. Get used to it.
