Stop getting information about Jesus secondhand. Get it firsthand by reading God’s Word.
That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched — this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. 1 JOHN 1:1
Are you basing your knowledge of Jesus on hearsay evidence? Is it based on what you’ve heard a pastor say, or your parents or friends say … or maybe someone in the media or in a book?
Many are willing to say that Jesus was a good man, even a great man, or even a prophet from God. But they stop short of truly being convinced that He is virgin-born, the unique, only begotten Son of God — God Himself in a man’s body. They stop short of saying He is God’s Lamb, sacrificed for the sin of the world … that He is the risen Lord, the reigning King. Yet God said in Mark 9:7, “This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!”
Stop getting information about Jesus secondhand. Get it firsthand by reading God’s Word. Get to know Him for yourself.
