REFLECTIONS ON THE PARABLES OF JESUS

I will like to commence this blog with a series on some of the parables of Jesus Christ. It will interest you to note that the use of parables was a deliberate style adopted by Jesus in the course of his teaching ministry. This is because of the invaluable importance that parables can play for purposes of effective communication of an idea or truth. A sermon delivered literally may be forgotten with time, but parables (stories) well relayed create pictures in the mind that last a very long time. The stories can be passed down through ages and the messages they were intended to drive home are passed on with them. The parables of Jesus are still relevant today like in the days of his earthly ministry and the messages they convey can still transform your life positively if you dare to apply them. I desire that you will contribute to this series by sharing your own personal revelations on the parables as well. I look forward to having a great time reading your comments.
