Unlimited: Jesus Explains the Parables to His Disciples

He did not say anything to them without using a parable. But when he was alone with his own disciples, he explained everything (Mark 4:30–32, NIV).

Jesus spoke differently to the crowds who came to hear him publicly than to his disciples in private.

With many similar parables Jesus spoke the word to them, as much as they could understand.  Jesus is kind to us, and he leads us like a good earthly father leads his little children. He takes us by the hand and leads us patiently and gently.

When Jesus taught people, he only ever told them what they could understand. He knew that his disciples could understand more than the rest, so he explained the parables to them clearly, and spoke as plainly as he could.

But Jesus knew that the other people couldn’t understand as deeply as the disciples, so he only spoke in parables to them. That way that would be able to understand as much as they could, and be blessed.

The disciples were closer to Jesus so he could tell them more. The closer you are to him, the more he’ll be able to share with you.

Are you ready to know more about Jesus’ will for your life?

– Eliezer Gonzalez

Eli’s Reflection: If you want to know Jesus more, then you need to surrender more. Set aside this week to pray in a special way, telling Jesus that you want to surrender fully to him. Ask him to reveal his will to you, whatever it might be. Are you brave enough? Be prepared for some surprises.

I am not sure where this is but I have read, Draw close/near tomHim and He will draw close/near to you. I've had a challenging couple of weeks, and Biodun, if ever you see this, I hope your challenges are resolved and or bearable and any internal conflict is straightened out - my curent issues remain unresolved, and are beyond me. Then again, being abused by the local shoppkeepers yesterday was no fun. Undeserved and unexpected, but my eventual reaction was not desirable - so it became a 2-edged sword, that is enabling me to look more closely to God, and draw closer to Him to help me do inventory on myself. Sometimes things happen out of the blue and if in darkness Satan lays his snares making it hard for us to even love ourselves or others, trapping us innhis web, then know that, yes,God is greater, His light shines in the darkness, and reveals the thungs that donot glorify Him in our hearts, so that His Holy Spirit can cleanse our hearts and minds and make our intentions pure like His. Thank You Father God,fir Your love, forgiveness, Wisdom and cleansing power. Draw me ever closer that I may know only Your Great Love in all things, Your tender Compassion and Mercy. Help S & L to realise that their clandestine endeavours, are not worthy and give them both a conscience, that they may know Your Great Love. Amen,

Biodun - My heart breaks for you. Ultimately, we must all learn to "let go and let God" and to find out joy in him. Nothing else will satisfy us in this world.
