The Bible Says The Words Of Jesus Are The Most Important

By Rev. Bill McGinnis, Pastor - InternetChurchOfChrist.org

The words of Jesus are the most important words in the Bible. His words are spirit and they are life itself. His words, and His alone, should be the foundation of our life. As Jesus says, "the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life." (John 6:63b KJV)

As Bible Christians, we believe in the Bible as the Word of God, sufficient for all good works.


      "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is
       profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction,
       for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God
       may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good
       works." (2 Timothy 3:16-17 KJV)
And we also believe that we should live by every word that comes from the mouth of God.
       "But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall
        not live by bread alone, but by every word that
        proceedeth out of the mouth of God." (Matthew
        4:4 KJV, quoting Deuteronomy 8:3)
Nevertheless, some words in the Bible are more important than others. Some words should be the foundation, and others should be the ornaments on the roof.

The Bible itself says that the words of Jesus are the most important words, the foundation of our life.

       MATTHEW 7:24-27 (KJV)

        24
               Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and
               doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built
               his house upon a rock:
        25
               And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds
               blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it
               was founded upon a rock.
        26
               And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and
               doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which
               built his house upon the sand:
        27
               And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds
               blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was
               the fall of it.

       LUKE 6:47-49 (KJV)

        47
               Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth
               them, I will shew you to whom he is like:
        48
               He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep,
               and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood
               arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and
               could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.
        49
               But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that
               without a foundation built an house upon the earth;
               against which the stream did beat vehemently, and
               immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.

       John 12:47-48 (KJV)

              And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not

              He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the
              word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

              Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
 
              He who does not love me does not keep my words; and the word which you hear is not
              mine but the Father's who sent me. 

       John 15:7 (KJV)
 
              If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it
              shall be done unto you.


May the Lord bless this presentation of His holy Word.
