There is a reason the things Jesus said are important. Here are just a few:
For us to be filled with joy…“I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow!” John 15:11 NLT
So we would believe…“I have told you these things before they happen so that when they do happen, you will believe.” John 14:29 NLT
So we wouldn't abandon our faith...“I have told you these things so that you won’t abandon your faith.” John 16:1 NLT
So we would have peace…“I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 NLT
In many bibles you will find the words of Jesus written in red to denote the importance of recognizing what Jesus had to say to us.
It's as if all the words of Christ are highlighted by the red stained cross; a life given in red so that we would know the one whose words are written in red.
They are worth the read.
