Christ’s Object Lessons
Ellen G White
‘Christ’s Object Lessons’ is a companion volume to ‘The Desire of Ages’; presenting the parables of Jesus in a fresh light. This wonderful book offers a deeply spiritual understanding of the parables of Jesus Christ as they apply to our life today. This author presents these timeless truths in a manner that can be easily read and understood.
Here is a sample of some of the wonderful gems to be found in ‘Christ’s Object Lessons’:
“In order to strengthen our confidence in God, Christ teaches us to address Him by a new name, a name entwined with the dearest associations of the human heart. He gives us the privilege of calling the infinite God our Father. This name, spoken to Him and of Him, is a sign of our love and trust toward Him, and a pledge of His regard and relationship to us. Spoken when asking His favour or blessing, it is as music in His ears. That we might not think it presumption to call Him by this name, He has repeated it again and again. He desires us to become familiar with the appellation. God regards us as His children. He has redeemed us out of the careless world and has chosen us to become members of the royal family, sons and daughters of the heavenly King. He invites us to trust in Him with a trust deeper and stronger than that of a child in his earthly father. Parents love their children, but the love of God is larger, broader, deeper, than human love can possibly be. It is immeasurable.”
