Ryle: the real story

Tuesday, November 28, 2023
    [Jesus:] “Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.”
    —John 3:14-15 (NIV)
    The New Testament begins with the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. No part of the Bible is so important as this, and no part is so full and complete. Four distinct Gospels tell us the story of Christ’s doing and dying. Four times over we read the precious account of His works and words. How thankful we ought to be for this! To know Christ is life eternal. To believe in Christ is to have peace with God. To follow Christ is to be a true Christian. To be with Christ will be heaven itself. We can never hear too much about Jesus Christ.

    See also John 3:14-16; Mark 10:29-30; Luke 2:14; John 4:13-14; 5:24; 6:27; 17:3; Rom. 5:1-2; Eph. 2:14-17; Phil. 4:7; Col. 3:15; 2 Thess. 3:16; 2 Tim. 2:13
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may I ever know more of You.
