    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.

    hi everyone.

    it's about building up not pulling down
    encouraging each other not devouring each other loving as we have been loved and simply keeping it true to truth.
    if I don't do that here then let me know!
    encourage
    exhort
    edify.

    thanks for the welcome

    thanks.
    I'll look around and dive on in.
    knowing the bible is one thing
    knowing the author and finisher of your faith is something else
    charity
    it's vital to edifying
    Jesus gave Himself.
    fully
    no compromise
    no adding to or taking from
    no excusing the flesh
    no sin
    charity
    And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Ephesians 3:19
    look also at 2Peter 1:1-13
    in a nutshell, knowing Him, in truth, is knowing Truth.
    thanks again for the welcome
    let us be known for worshipping in spirit and truth

    Welcome to the forum Eddy,
    I follow what your saying,that it is time to gather.
    Jesus came to sow(himself) or scatter seed and he told us to pray that the Lord of harvest send laborers into the field.
    He is the sower and we are to be the gatherers.
    Thanks for coming into our field.

    Hi again
    I was wondering
    does everyone have a problem with my posts
    or is it only some
    or one following one?

    as you see
    my avatar is a loaf of bread
    such loaves are usually eaten in bite sized pieces
    when I write my posts it is with that in mind.
    I also write in thought segments.

    I realize I have been asked to attend to my posts and I shall attempt to do so in future but does that mean I must only write "normally" as one member put it?
    I try to express the things I write and also make each point a chewable bite, so to speak. I f I wrote everything 'normally' it may end up a much longer post so I have actually 'formatted' (as another said) with the prayer that every line is read and digested as most lines say something as part of the whole and also in themselves.

    Perhaps my posts should be moved to the Poetry section, where they will not be so scrutinized for format while the content is overlooked?
    Is it possible to reply with a quote from one section and post it in another, like the Poetry one?

    a Scripture comes to mind:
    For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
    Isaiah 28:10 from Isaiah 28

    thankyou again for the welcome

    Let your light shine before men
    Matthew 5;16

    Yes I have noticed a couple of detrimental comments about your posts

    However, I find your posts rather refreshing and thought provoking.
    The way that you write may be different to others but there is nothing wrong with that.
    And if you write carefully and prayerfully only wanting to glorify the Lord then His message should shine through.

    Don't change your style brother to conform to others wishes....do all to glorify the Lord

    Let the whole earth be filled with His glory
    Psalm 72:19

    The comments were never meant to be hurtful, and really don't classify as detrimental to be honest. I have even made a suggestion to please make the lines longer because it can hurt my eyes to try to read vertically. Yes Eddy I agree that your posts are thought provoking, but no one suggests that your posts are horrible. A few people, including myself, only suggested to please make the lines longer so we can more easily read your posts. Many percieve a break in a line as a pause, so it can be challenging to read.
