Words of Jesus: 15 Amazing Bible Quotes

by David Peach on April 13, 2011 · Print Print · Email Email

The first four books of the New Testament are full of quotes from Jesus. Many of these quotes stand on their own, but one should not forget to read them in context to get a full understanding of what the Lord was saying.

Most Often Quoted

One of the greatest, and most often quoted, verses in the Bible is actually a quote from Jesus.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Jesus Said that He Is

The Water of Life

John 4:13, 14 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

The Good Shepherd

John 10:10, 11 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

Eternal Life for His Sheep

John 10:27-30 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.

The Way, The Truth and The Life

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Jesus Invites All to Follow Him

Seek the Kingdom of God First

Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Ask, Seek, Find

Matthew 7:7,8 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Jesus and the Children

Matthew 19:14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

Gain the Whole World

Mark 8:34-37 And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it. For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

He Calls Sinners

Luke 5:31, 32 And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

On What His Followers Should Do

Be a Light in the World

Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Love Your Enemies

Matthew 5:43-44 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Do Unto Others

Matthew 7:12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

The Greatest Commandment: Love God and Your Neighbour

Matthew 22:37-40 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Be a Servant to Others

Mark 10:45 For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

One of the finest books written on the life of Christ is “The Desire of Ages” written by Ellen G. White. Also “Steps To Christ” “Christ’s Object Lessons” (about the parables in the Bible) and a link for you http://text.egwwritings.org/publication.php?pubtype=Book&bookCode=CC&lang=en&pagenumber=56

If you want to get serious with God then talk to your pastor, see what he says. Also fast and pray and fall on your face, hands, and knees and plead with God for His intervention and praying in the Strong Name of Jesus Christ.

It is only through repentance and holiness shall we be serious with God. Whatever that you are facing, you must make it your goal to repent of anything that you know does not conform to the Word of God, and pray from your heart for God’s help for you to be strong in your faith. It takes only prayer and the Word of God that breakthrough comes. But know that people are praying with you as you set your heart to do your part. God bless you

dont worry it shows a lack of faith in God.

the bible says the following:

Matthew 6:27-29
Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are.

The energy that we spend worrying can be put to much better use in prayer. Here’s a little formula to remember: Worry replaced by Prayer equals Trust.
Matthew 6:30
And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?

Matthew 6:25
That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life-whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? (NLT)
Matthew 6:31-33
So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need… you are blessed and highly favored :-)

i use 2 worry but god says do not worry trust god completely give it to god .If you worry you are thinking you have complete control over the matter and nobody does. You are to some extent making a god of yourself when you worry. If you give it completely to god you are trusting him for whatever the outcome is instead of trusting yourself
there by giving you gods complete peace about it.

we should stop worry so much (easy to say but so hard to practice indeed) and put our faith and trust in god. there is a reason for every single thing that happens. good as bad.
