 Jesus' Words about Worrying
************** 

"So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today's trouble is enough for today." 
Matt 6:34

"Therefore do not worry, saying,  'What will we eat?' or 'What will we wear? For it is the Gentiles who strive for all these things; and indeed your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." 
Matthew 6:31-33


"So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin;"  
Matthew 6:28

"And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to the span of life?" 
 
Luke 12:25 

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat, or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing."
Luke 12:22

“And do not seek what you should eat or what you should drink, nor have an anxious mind. For all these things the nations of the world seek after, and your Father knows that you need these things."

  Luke 12:29-30

Prayer

 

This website was created to glorify God through the words of Jesus Christ. It is our prayer that you will be enlightened, encouraged and blessed as you read  Jesus' words about life issues such as love, marriage, death, faith, wealth, healing, eternal life, discipleship, war and much more. Additionally, we will also look at Jesus' early life and His ministry  Jesus' words  are of utmost significance because He is one with God; Jesus said in -John 10:30  I and the Father are one”. As the Son of God,  Jesus' words  take preeminence above those of prophets, apostles and religious personalities. It is Jesus only who absolutely knows God and His message for Mankind - "I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak. And I know that His command is everlasting life. Therefore, whatever I speak, just as the Father has told Me, so I speak"-John 12:49-50. 

Who is Jesus? 

It is fairly common to hear individuals say that they know about Jesus Christ – and this may indeed be true. But, when pressed further for what Jesus says about spiritual matters and life issues, it becomes evident that they know of Him but they don’t know what he says. Many are sincere when they say “I believe in God”. But they may also openly deny or subtly ignore the reality of Jesus Christ. Yet, the bible, and historical records clearly document the existence of Jesus Christ. Many prophecies, testimonies and accounts in the bible all attest to the existence of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. One notable record is found in Luke 1:35 where an angel announces to Mary that she has been chosen to be the mother of Jesus Christ – And the angel answered and said to her, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God’”  Another significant scripture is Matthew 3:17, where God revealed Jesus’ identity to the world  - "And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Even the demons knew that Jesus is the Son of God - Mark 3:11 “And the unclean spirits, whenever they saw Him, fell down before Him and cried out, saying, ‘You are the Son of God."  

As we read about Jesus’ divine mission in the gospels, there emerges four main reasons why He came to earth. First, it was to redeem us from the death sentence of sin and give us eternal life - John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes on Him will have everlasting life.”  Secondly, it was to reconcile us to God- "For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him"- John 3:17.  Thirdly, it was to reveal the character and nature of God to us -"Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works." John 14:10.  And fourthly, it was to teach us how to love God and show love for each other -  So he answered and said, 'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,' and 'your neighbor as yourself.' “ Luke 10:27.    

The words of Jesus endure forever- He says Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.” Mark 13:31. Therefore, we do not have to wonder what would Jesus say?” or what would Jesus do?”  The answers are found in the recorded scriptural text throughout the bible and especially the New Testament. It is because of Jesus' sacrificial death that we are redeemed from sin, and  receive the gift of eternal life. On earth, Jesus lived the perfect example of how we must love and serve God. His lifestyle provided the blueprint for living the abundant life in obedience to God’s commands. His purpose was always to convey spiritual truths to our spirits. Jesus’ words minister to our hearts with salvation; to  sick bodies with divine healing; to troubled minds with peace; and to our needs with provision. But ultimately, every word spoken by Jesus in sermons, parables and teachings validates God's promises, laws and commands. 

A Prayer to accept Jesus as Savior

Heavenly Father, I come to you in repentance for my sins. Please forgive me. I believe that Jesus Christ is your Son and He  died for my sins. I now receive Him as my Lord and  Savior. By faith I accept your forgiveness and your love for me. I receive your peace into my spirit and I am now a child of God. In Jesus name: Amen
