JESUS BROUGHT US
GOD'S TRUE MESSAGE
Jesus brings us the truth
and shows us the path
that leads to a life with God.
We begin with Jesus telling us that His teachings come from God, and that He only teaches what God wants Him to teach. It's another way of saying, "Here is what God wants you to know."
Jesus also tells us that He brings us the truth and shows us the path that leads us to a life with God. And He encourages us to accept and embrace His teachings.
Jesus assures us that if we search for God, we will find Him. If we ask for understanding and forgiveness, we will receive them. If we knock on the door of heaven with love in our heart, it will be opened.
"The things I teach are not my own, but they come from him who sent me. If people choose to do what God wants, they will know that my teaching comes from God and not from me. Those who teach their own ideas are trying to get honor for themselves. But those who try to bring honor to the one who sent him speak the truth, and there is nothing false in them."
"You will know that these things I do are not by my own authority but that I say only what the Father has taught me. The One who sent me is with me. I always do what is pleasing to him, so he has not left me alone."
"Whoever believes in me is really believing in the One who sent me. Whoever sees me sees the One who sent me. I have come as a light into the world so that whoever believes in me would not stay in darkness."
"I am the light of the world. The person who follows me will never live in darkness but will have the light that gives life."
"I am the way, and the truth, and the life. The only way to the Father is through me."
"Come to me, all of you who are tired and have heavy loads, and I will give you rest. Accept my teachings and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in spirit, and you will find rest for your lives. The teaching that I ask you to accept is easy; the load I give you to carry is light."
"Others are like the seed planted in the good ground. They hear the teaching and accept it. Then they grow and produce fruit - sometimes thirty times more, sometimes sixty times more, and sometimes a hundred times more."
"The person who belongs to God accepts what God says."
"Ask, and God will give to you. Search, and you will find. Knock, and the door will open for you. Yes, everyone who asks will receive. Everyone who searches will find. And everyone who knocks will have the door opened."
