I am the treasurer of Saint Anne and all Saints, Vauxhall, and have qualified for The Diocesan Certificate in Biblical and Theological Studies. My intention here is to outline what the words of Jesus evoke in me as an ordinary Christian. Having prayed before the task that was in front of me I hope I have some inspiring comments to make that will be instructive to fellow Christians and even unbelievers. The following verse of a favourite hymn, popular with many, hopefully may be applicable during the process of reading this book as Jesus is very much alive and present in my life generally. I heard the voice of Jesus say: 'Come unto me and rest; Lay down, Thou weary one, lay down Thy head upon my breast.' I came to Jesus as I was, Weary and worn and sad, I found in Him a resting-place, And He has made me glad. I hope my comments will result in a closer relationship of the reader with Jesus, and that the end result will be peace and hope for the future as Christians.

The good Samaritan, the prodigal son, the lost sheep--more than one third of all that Jesus taught is found in the form of parables. Now from J. Barrie Shepherd comes a fresh, positive approach to the best known and loved of Jesus' teachings. This unique collection of meditations offers morning and evening reflections for thirty-one days--each centered on one of the parables of Jesus. Every prayer is an insightful and inspirational response that applies the truth of the parable to daily life. An excellent idea for personal reading, this diary includes a full page of space opposite each prayer that can be used for writing notes, feelings, thoughts, and reactions. Ideal as devotional aids, these perceptive meditations are also a perfect resource for groups studying the parables.

1 Corinthians 2:16. But we have the mind of Christ. Everything we do, everything we say, everything about us should reflect Christ in us. Acquiring the Mind of Christ begins when we accept Him as our personal Saviorwhen we seek to increase our knowledge of Him and when we become doers of His Word. We live in an ungodly world and evil will try with all its might to infiltrate our minds. Laws of the flesh war with laws of the mind! But we have help in Jesus the Christ. Be encouraged as you read this book, that even though we are tempted and tried, we are determined to have the Mind of Christ.
