Life Giving Words From Jesus

The longer I follow God, the more I am aware of the importance of knowing Jesus. I love to read through the Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. They give a great picture of who Jesus was: He was ‘God come down to earth’. If you really want to know what God is like, study Jesus. My goal as a Christian, as a follower of Jesus, is to become more like Him each day.

A recent blog by Ron Edmonson gives 25 life-giving statements by Jesus. They are so good I had to share!
