    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.

    A Spiritual Check-up (1)

    '...The Lord searches every heart and understands every motive...' 1 Chronicles 28:9 NIV

    The Psalmist prayed, 'Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.' (Psalm 139:23-24 NKJV) If you're wise you'll visit your doctor and get regular physical checkups. You'll also go to God for regular spiritual checkups. In what areas?

    (1) Your salvation. 'If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.' (2 Corinthians 5:17 NKJV) Was there ever a time in your life when you repented of your sin and placed your trust in Jesus to save you? Have you surrendered to Him and made Him Lord of your life?

    (2) Your devotional life. 'I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day.' (Psalm 119:97 NKJV) 'Your Word is very pure; therefore Your servant loves it.' (Psalm 119:140 NKJV) Do you read and meditate on God's Word each day? Are your personal devotions consistent and meaningful? Do you try to apply the principles of Scripture to each circumstance you're in?

    (3) Your humility. God says: '...I dwell in the high and holy place, with him who has a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.' (Isaiah 57:15 NKJV)

    Are you quick to recognise and agree with God when you have sinned? Are you quick to admit to others when you are wrong? Can you rejoice at others' successes, even when yours goes unnoticed? Do you esteem others as better than yourself? (Romans 12:10) Do you live with a sense of dependence upon God?
