An interesting post came up on a Yahoo group I am on.
A man has been witnessing to a friend who has had a hard time accepting the claims of Christ and the Bible. His friend asked him if there was a "Jesus for Dummies" book because he was beginning to feel confused. He also asked what were the most important statements made by Jesus in the Bible. So this man asked our Yahoo group for a Top 10 list of what we thought were Jesus' most important statements.
I only spent about 20 or 30 minutes on this, but here's what I came up with...
(BTW, I didn't order them.)
John 14:6 NIV
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
When he had received the drink, Jesus said, "It is finished." With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
"My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me,that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me."
Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
John 14: 2-3
"In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you with me that you might also be where I am."
"I have told you these things so that you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world!"
Jesus replies: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'"
John 13: 13-17
"You call me 'Teacher' and 'Lord' and rightly so, for that is what I am. Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should was one another's feet. I have set an example that you should do as I have done for you. I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them."
Luke 16:13 NIV
"No servant can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money."
Revelation 3:20 NIV
Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.
