The Words of Jesus

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’”

My Comments: Jesus speaks through the whole Bible to us yet there were times recorded in the New Testament where He walked and talked, ate and lived within the confines of a human body. He spoke to the people He interacted with on a daily basis and yet we only have few words quoted by Him.
I thought it might be interesting to take a look at the words the Holy Spirit prompted Jesus’ followers to write down. These words would be well to be written in our hearts and minds and used to compare the rest of the Word of God so we will know and understand what the Lord has for us to do.
There are many more of His words I do not have here and if this is a study of interest to you let me know in the comments and I will increase this study. In fact if there is something you would like for me to study let me know and I will endeavor to do so.
Abba Father You sent Your Son so we may know You better. So we may know Your truths better He spoke so His Words which are Your Words, would be written down so we would have greater knowledge that leads to wisdom. Open our eyes to your truths. Send Your Holy Spirit to guide us each time we open Your Word. Help us to grow in our walk daily with You by nourishing our souls with Your Holy Word.
Lord Jesus You came to shine Your light into our dark world that we may live. Your sent the Holy Spirit so we would understand and have a deeper relationship with the Father through You. You and the Father are one with the Spirit.
May we all dwell on Your truths, feed on Your Word and follow Your light. Thank You for all You show us, all You do and have done and for the gift of Salvation. May we all accept Your free gift. In Jesus name in union with the Holy Spirit I pray. Amen.
