Jesus is The Teacher that must be listened to.

Jesus was the Son of God incarnate, indeed He is the Lord.

His teaching was given to Him by His Father.

John 7:16-18 “Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.”

John 12:49,50 “For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.”

 Jesus’ Word will stand forever.

Mark 13:31, “Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.”

His Word will finally be used to judge its hearers.

 Matt 7:24-27 “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: 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. 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: 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.

John 12:48 “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.”

The importance of paying attention to His Words cannot be overstressed.

The Words of our Lord Jesus Christ are salvation, they are life eternal. There is no other way to salvation, to eternal life with God except through the Lord Jesus Christ.

John 14:6 “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Read His Words, and indeed all the Words in the Holy Bible. In them you will find Jesus, and in Jesus you may find life eternal.
