    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.

    Three Levels of Attack (3)

    '...All these things I will give you...' Matthew 4:9 NKJV

    The attack over the cross. Let's look at the third temptation Jesus faced: '...The devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, "All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me."' (Matthew 4:8-9 NKJV)

    Satan's third attack was over a cross-less life. In essence, he told Jesus, 'You don't have to carry the cross. Just bow to me and you can have it all.' Jesus said, 'Away with you, Satan!' (Matthew 4:10 NKJV) 'Away' with any teaching that says God is your concierge and He has to wait on you! Or that He's like a vending machine; all you have to do is put in a few coins and whatever you want will come out.

    Paul writes, 'I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.' (Galatians 2:20 NKJV)

    Has God promised to bless you? Absolutely! But that doesn't mean you'll never get hurt, or face lack, or fatigue, or be betrayed and disappointed by others. Jesus said, '...unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies [to self], it remains alone; but if it dies [to self], it produces much...' (John 12:24 NKJV)

    Have you ever heard the expression, 'Dead man walking?' To do God's will, you have to die to your own will, and do it daily. But if you're willing to, God will take you to a new level of blessing.
