Starting with the Gospels is one of the best ways to begin a study of the Bible and starting with the words of Jesus makes the challenge an even more exciting.
After all, because of the fact that He is the Son of God, wouldnt studying his words, be the best way to start? For centuries, the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been preached throughout the world. His teachings have been taught in nearly every language, dialect and nation, astonishing the wise and humbling the proud. Christs teachings focused on love: Love one another as I have loved you and Do unto others as you would have them do to you.
When Jesus was asked which of the Ten Commandments the greatest commandment is, He replies, You will love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with your entire mind- this is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it, you will love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. While reading His words, let us focus on what He says. Do we truly live as He taught? Do we follow in His footsteps? The word Christian means Follower of Christ. Lets learn what He taught us and then follow what He said.
The world is watching us- it was once said by Mahatma Gandhi that if India would ever truly become a Christian nation, it would be because of the Christ of the Christians and not because of the Christians of the Christ. Christians today have not left the greatest impression on the world. Lets be true followers of Christ and live by His words. Only then will the world know what a Christian truly is. As the song says, They will know we are Christians by our love. Read carefully His words and then study the context in which He was speaking. Review the questions carefully and answer them as honestly as you can.
Enjoy your study of Christs words.
