Parables Of Our Lord: Part Two: The Newness of Christ’s Message
I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas. I know it has been a while since I started this series on Parables of Our Lord. I pray that the first lesson touched your hearts, and I pray that wisdom was drawn from it. As we start the second part of this series, I pray that hearts will be opened to receive the things that Jesus is going to teach us through the parables.
Prayer:Dear Heavenly Father, thatnk You for Your Word. Thank You for giving all of the authors of the Sripture wisdom and inspiration to write Your Word for us so that we can have it to teach us how to live, and how to love one another. Thank You for sending Your precious Son to take our place, and to take the punishment that we deserved. Thank You Jesus for sheding Your blood for us. We will never be able to repay You for the sacrifice that You made. Thank You, Lord for Your love, mercy, grace, and forgiveness, because without you we could do nothing. We give You all praise, glory, and honor, we love You Lord, Amen!
Parable: The Patched Garment
Matthew 9:16-No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment; for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse.What is the meaning of Matthew 9:16 – Bing The old cloth represents the old life of a person, and the new cloth represents the new life of the man which is holiness, so the old cloth does not agree with the new cloth and the old cloth is rent worse than it was. When we give our lives to the Lord Jesus to live for Him, we do not want to live how we used to live, we don’t want to live sinful lives. We want to live our new life in Christ and be holy just as God tells us to. Therefore our old self fights with our new self to make us do the things that we once did, but our spirit will not let us. We have to watch out when we tend to slip away from our new way of living, because the enemy comes to steal, kill, and to destroy.
Occasion: To the Disciples of John
Mark 2:21- No man can also seweth a piece of new cloth on an old garment; else the new piece that filled it up taketh away from the old, and the rent is made worse.
Luke 5:33- And they said unto Him, Why do the disciples of John fast often, and make prayers, and likewise the disciples of the Pharisees; but thine eat and drink? what is the meaning of Luke 5:33 – Bing
Luke 5:34-And He said unto them, Can ye makae the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? what is the meaning of Luke 5:34 – Bing
Luke 5:35-But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days.what is the meaning ofLuke5:35 – Bing
Luke 5:36-And He spake also a parable unto them; No man putteth a piece of a new garment upon an old; if otherwise, then both the new maketh a rent, and the piece that was taken out of the new agreeth not with the old.what is the meaning of Luke 5:36 – Bing
Luke 5:37-And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish.what is the meaning of Luke 5:37 – Bing
Luke 5:38-But new wine must be put into new wine bottles; and both are preserved.what is the meaning of Luke 5:38 – Bing
Luke 5:39-No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new; for he saith, The old is better. The old is better because it has aged. Wine gets better with time.what is the meaning of Luke 5:39 – Bing
I used Bing for this lesson because I wanted to do something different, and that way everyone can go and read it for themselves. I thought it would give us a better understanding as to what the Scriptures mean in clear context. I always do what is laid on my heart to get a better understanding of something.
I hope everyone enjoy this lesson. If you have not asked Jesus to come into your heart to be your Lord and Savior, I pray that you would. He loves you so much. Be blessed in the Lord our God.
