    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.

    Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life
    Revelation 2:10


    Thank you Stephen,

    A very good article and a very similar message to one I was reading today.
    I will share it here and may it be another word in season for those who read it:



    At the Call of Christ (from JR Miller Come Ye Apart)

    They straightway left their nets, and followed Him.
    Matthew 4:20


    Their nets were probably all they had. It was with these that they earned their living.
    Yet at the call of Christ they gave up all, cut themselves off from their means of support, and in simple obedience and faith went with Him.
    That is just the way we all should do when Christ calls us. We should obey instantly and without questioning.

    No matter how much the sacrifice involves, we should make it cheerfully for His sake.
    Though to obey cuts us off from all our ordinary means of livelihood, and leaves us without provision even for tomorrow, we should not hesitate.
    Christ takes care of His servants when they are faithfully doing His will.
    He asks for absolute surrender to Him. He wants us to trust Him while we obey Him unquestioningly.


    The faith in Christ which the gospel requires is the utter, unreserved devotement of the whole life to Him, and the unreasoning committal to Him for time and for eternity of every interest and hope.
    The question what He will do with us or for us, how He will provide for us, should not for an instant be raised.
    There must be no conditions in the following and the consecration.
    We may not bargain with Him for an easy time, for ” ways of pleasantness,” but should simply give ourselves to Him absolutely and forever, to follow where and to whatsoever He may lead us.


    The “straightway” is also important.
    Many people are forever postponing duties.
    But every call of Christ should be answered immediately.
    Let us get this ringing gospel “straightway” into our lives.
    Many people obey so laggardly, so reluctantly, and so long after they are called, that half the value of their obedience is lost.
    Christ wants always instant obeying.
    There is no tomorrow with Him.
    Tomorrow He may not need us, or we may not be here to do the duty He now asks of us.
