Obviously the best quotes from The Greatest Words Ever Spoken are from Jesus Himself. But Steven K. Scott, who complied the words of Christ into this unique format (you may read my book review by clicking here) had some good things to say too.
“No occurrence in history or physical science has been verified with a higher degree of statistical certainty than the fact that Jesus is exactly who He claimed to be—the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”
“We cannot worship the Father in spirit or in truth unless we see Him for who He really is and understand His relationship with the Son.”
“Agnostics hold the position that they simply do not know if God exists. Atheists, on the other hand, claim intellectual superiority over all others, saying they know there is no God.”
“If you want to know what God thinks and feels, how He acts and works, what grieves Him and what pleases Him, all you have to do is read the words and observe the behavior of Jesus Christ.”
“Several years ago a string of four letters took the Christian community by storm. It seemed like WWJD, which stands for ‘What would Jesus do?’ was everywhere—and why not? When a choice has to be made, is any other question more important to ask? The answer is ‘Yes, one question is more important. One question Christians should ask before choosing any course of action, making any spiritual decision, or adopting any value or belief.’ That question is ‘WDJS: what did Jesus say?’ This is the question Christians need to ask because in many situations we simply can’t know for sure what Jesus would do, so we are left to figure it out for ourselves. And figuring it out may require more wisdom, revelation, insight, and spiritual maturity than we possess at the time. … Jesus made more statements about how His followers should live and what they should believe than about any other group of topics.”
“By nature, we evaluate nearly every situation according to its immediate impact on our desires, and we make our choices accordingly. Consequently, we often sacrifice that which would bring infinite eternal benefit in exchange for temporary gratification.”
“Jesus shows us that blaming others for our failures is not only offensive to God; it is detrimental to our relationships. While we all want healthier relationships, most of us have a hard time breaking free from our natural inclinations. The words of Christ… can bring about extraordinary change in every relationship in your life, for the rest of your life. … We can have better relationships with anyone who crosses our path, but it doesn’t happen naturally. Jesus provides both the revelation and the power that frees us from our human nature.”
