The words of the Lord Jesus Christ - so important

 

“My words”  from the teaching of Jesus Christ.

John 8:31   -   “If you abide in My word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

 

John 8:47   -    Whoever is of God hears God’s words. The reason you do not hear them is that you are not of God.”

 

John 12:48   -   “ the one who rejects Me and does not receive the words has a judge: the words that I have spoken will judge him on the last day.”

 

John 14:23  -  “If anyone loves Me, he will keep my  word, and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make our home with him.”

 

John 17:14     -    I have given them your word, and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world.”

John 20:29   -  “ blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

 

The apostle Paul emphasized the importance of HIS words:

Philippians 3:16   “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing Psalms and hymns and spiritual songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God.”

 

The apostle Peter likewise 

1 Peter 2:2   “As newborn babes desire the sincere milk of the word, that you may grow thereby.”


Being a Christian without reading the words of the Lord Jesus is like sailing a ship without a compass.
