    An excellent sermon by Francis Chan. Give this a view and listen. He's inspiring and very passionate about Jesus Christ and us living fully for God's Kingdom.

    Parables of Jesus

    Jesus' parables are short stories that teach a moral or spiritual lesson by analogy or similarity. They are often stories based on the agricultural life that was intimately familiar to His original first century audience.

    Some aspect of an unfamiliar concept, such as the kingdom of God, was compared to something from everyday life that could easily be understood.

    There is a lot of noise, lots of "religions" and beliefs out there to confuse anyone. But, Jesus is real. He loves you, He's ready to forgive you for all your sins and make your heart His dwelling place. Read about God's characteristics and attributes and get to know the real Jesus today.

    Understanding Inadequacy

    Poor self-image. Past failures. Weak faith. We all feel inadequate in different areas of our lives. No one is adequate within themselves to be saved or to serve God effectively. We must respond to God’s call and rely on the Holy Spirit.

    Birthday Poem For A Christian

    Another year older, a year of living in the light of the Lord,
    A time of changing, a time of growing,
    A time of learning to use His Sword

    Maturing more as the days go on,
    Telling others what Christ has taught you,
    Touching hearts as you travel along,
    Living love - we can see Him in you.

    A miracle is working there in your heart,
    A new beginning, He changed you right from the start,
    And now you know that there is no turning back,
    The grace of God you will never lack.

    You're a picture of what our great Redeemer can do,
    When you walk in His love, you make an excellent view,
    You are changing on the inside, it's really plain to see,
    Like a stranger to this world - living for eternity,
    Committed to our Saviour, you are resting in His hands,
    He planned your future long ago, before your life began.

    Oh, delight yourself forever in the living Lord,
    Wait on His gracious love and receive His Word,
    Taste and see how good our God is,
    He is awe-inspiring and His name is Jesus!

    He is your refuge when your times get tough,
    His provision will always be enough,
    Your steps are directed by the Father of lights,
    Trust fully in Him, your future is bright.

    Shine out, my friend, and show them the way,
    Light up the darkness, hold the shadows at bay,
    Free the captives, as Christ has freed you,
    Tell others the wonders of what our God can do.

    Praise God and live a life pleasing to Him,
    Lift up your voice and let your heart sing,
    Seek the Lord's guidance and live in His will,
    Come before Jesus and learn to be still.

    Though this life seems so hard and you may fail sometimes,
    Get on Hind's feet - there are still mountains to climb,
    When you reach the highest peak, there will be joy without end,
    God will say, "Well done, My servant and friend."
