What are some of the things that Jesus taught us about Himself?
I love the teachings of Jesus, and He tells us five powerful, life changing things about Himself. Now these five are not the only important things Jesus said, but they are pretty amazing!
- He is the living bread that will give life forever. Mankind will never again hunger for truth because His truth is so extremely satisfying. (John 6: 56-58)
- He is the living water, the life giving water where mankind will never thirst again for more than He is.
- He is the light of the world, the light of life. When we know His words and they live within us through thinking about the meaning of His teaching all day, everyday, we will no longer walk in darkness.
- He is the good shepherd, the shepherd who gives his life for the sheep. Whether he is water, bread, light, or any metaphor we choose, he is the true source and giver of eternal life! He is the source of true and authentic human existence.
- He is the “good news” for all mankind. The news that men and women can be set free to have God’s peace and love and power!
