    Do you know Jesus Christ like he must be known. That being Jesus should be more important than your wife and family. He needs to be our first love always. He is our constant truth and gives us our bearings as we live our lives for Him each day, because it truly matters to the Godhead. May you know Eternal Life in Christ Jesus.

    "These words spake Jesus"
    What a loaded statement! Could anybody else have spoken them? Is there anybody else qualified to make them? If John had stopped at these four words could anybody have imagined what was to follow? "These words", revealed the heart of the 'Word'.
