Jesus Explains the Parable of the Sower

In the last post on this blog we looked at Jesus’ explanation of why He spoke in parables. I have really enjoyed meditating on these parables as our home Bible study continues through Matthew.  This parable is very well know and is a key in many ways to understanding all of the others.     Matthew 13: 3 – 9 The… (more…)

Considering Our Future Accomplishments

Something to consider as we begin the year 2013: During the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus taught us to do good things to please God   Matthew 6: 1-4 1 “Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven. 2 Therefore, when you… (more…)

Supporting Birth Choice and All Human Life

It was a very successful event and well supported by the community and local churches.  Please pray for your local Birth Choice Clinics and other Pro life clinics in your areas. Dear Friends… (more…)

Jesus said: John 6:52 – 68 “Do you also want to go away?”

Many Disciples Turn Away after Jesus’ Teaching There are many times, as in the following passage, when Jesus said some difficult and challenging things which resulted in some turning away.  John 6: 52 – 68 The Jews therefore quarreled among themselves, saying, “How can this Man give us His flesh to eat?” Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless… (more…)

Jesus Said, John 6:29 – 40 “I am the bread of life.”

Jesus is the “True Bread from Heaven” John 6: 29 – 40 In the dialog between Jesus and the people who had come looking for more miracles, Jesus admonished them to  “Labor for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him.” Then they said to Him, “What should we… (more…)

Jesus Said; John 6:25 – 29

What should motivate us to seek Jesus Christ? As Jesus continued to move through out the land of Galilee He did many miracles.  Thousands came to Him and in one situation, (recorded in all of the gospels), He took 5 barley loaves and 2 fish and fed 5000 men plus women and children, and there were 12 baskets of food… (more…)

Understanding What Jesus Said, John 5:24 -30

Dear Friends and Family, Prior to understanding and believing in Jesus, I, like so many, did not really understand what Jesus truly taught about the critical issues of life and death and judgment. I was raised by a godly Christian mother and a non-believing father. For much of my early years I even thought I was a Christian because I… (more…)

Jesus said; “I who speak to you am He.”

In the Apostle John’s documenting of Jesus’ conversation with the Samaritan woman, Jesus demonstrates His spiritual word of knowledge about her marital history. Further He confirms to her that He, in fact, is the Messiah, the Christ, whom God, through the Old Testament prophets, said would come. John 4:16 – 26  Jesus said to her, “Go, call your husband, and come here,”  The… (more…)

Remember What Jesus Said ..

Jesus Offers Pardon from Judgment From the amazing things that Jesus said, which we have looked at so far, we learned that He is the Only Begotten Son of God, who came to mankind (through a  miraculous birth).  His purpose was to demonstrate the love of God the Father for the world by offering himself as a sacrifice for the… (more…)

Jesus said John 3:10 – 18

At this time of year it is good to know who Jesus is and what He did and said. The apostle John wrote his gospel for this very reason. John  20: 30 – 31  For those who know Him we can be reminded of what He has done in our hearts and lives. For those who do not know of… (more…)
