    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.

    Revolution brings great cultural change. First Samuel is a book full of revolution and change. Here is recorded the transition of leadership in Israel from the judges to the kings. Three men played prominently in this transition: Samuel, a prophet and the last judge; Saul, the first king; and David, the king-elect, anointed by God to succeed Saul.

    Tradition says that Samuel wrote both books, however his death is recorded in 1 Samuel 25:1, so others must have been part of the writing process. First Chronicles 29:29 refers to books by Samuel, Nathan, and Gad, so it is possible that all three men contributed to the books of 1 and 2 Samuel.

    The most obvious connection Jesus Christ has to the men of 1 Samuel is through King David. Christ's family descended from the line of David - Matthew 1:1. Romans 1:3 calls Jesus "the seed of David." The multitudes in Jerusalem recognized Him as the "Son of David" - Matthew 21:9. David, the lord of an earthly realm, was the forerunner of Jesus, the Messiah and Lord of people's hearts and souls.

    The only way human leaders can be sure of maintaining their own humility and the well-being of their people is by recognizing the lordshp, or leadership, of Christ in their own lives. Christ admonishes His disciples in John 15:5, "I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing."

    Jesus--King, Leader, Son of Man, descendant of David, One who was truly after God's own heart. When He came, He brought a revolutionary way of living, for He brought us a way to walk with God.

    God Bless,

    Dan
