With this devotion I am beginning a new series which I have entitled, "Words of Christ." My original intent was to go through the Sermon on the Mount, from Matthew 5, 6, and 7, but after some thought have decided to include all of the words spoken by Christ. After all, we have a rather unique opportunity to peruse the only words spoken by Christ, the Son of God, which have been recorded for us in the Bible. These are not the words that people said about Christ, but the actual words that God has seen fit to providentially record in His Holy Word. As such, should we not pay close attention to what He said, and by His grace apply them to our lives today in this 21st century?
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."
John 14:6, NKJV
As I began to work on this series of devotions considering the Words that Christ spoke as revealed to us in His Word, I began to realize that the subject was far more extensive than what could be written in just a few devotions. With that in mind, this page is a directory that will lead to the devotions in this series.
As new devotions are added to this section, they will be included in the appropriate book (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John). However, at times the words appear in more than one Gospel. When that occurs, the link to that particular devotion will occur in each of the books.
As we go through this section, I pray that you, as I have been, will be greatly enriched in your walk with the Lord. As Jesus told us in John 14:6: I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Because that is true, may we take to heart these words as they are given to us in God's Holy Word, the Bible. May these words spring up into us as a well of water spreading God's Word through our hearts, lives, and souls. And, may they then enrich the lives of all of those with whom we interact each day.
What an amazing God we serve.
God Bless You,
