Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.
 – John 21:25 NIV

Six months ago I tried a variation on our quotations series, and decided I’d try our various sources and see what they came up with if I typed “Paul the Apostle,” “Apostle Paul,” or “Paul of Tarsus.” You can read that collection at this link.

Today, I decided to take it one step further and I typed “Quotations Jesus Christ.” Of course, the answers would all be from the Bible which means today’s devotional is going to be a scripture medley.

It wasn’t always clear which translation was being used, and some sites omitted the verse references, so I decided to leave out all the references. The verses are easily located.

Again, don’t rush through these. Go  s-l-o-w-l-y  through these and bask in the words of Jesus.


For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his soul?


I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.


I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.


My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.


Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.


Those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.


But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.


The wind blows where it pleases, and you hear its sound, but you don’t know where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.


Man will not live by bread alone, but on every word which flows from the mouth of God.


To hang on to your life is to lose it. To let go of your life is to save it.


It is not what goes into a man from outside that can make him unclean. It’s what comes out of him that makes him unclean.


Don’t use oaths, whether ‘by heaven’ or ‘by earth’ or by anything else. When you say yes or no let it be plain ‘Yes’ or ‘No’


Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.


When someone hits you on the cheek offer the other as well. When someone takes your coat let him have your shirt too.


Love your enemies. And pray for those who persecute.


If one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them, does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open pasture and go after the missing one till he has found it? How delighted he is then! He lifts it onto his shoulders, and home he goes to call his friends and neighbors together. “Celebrate with me!” he cries. “I have found my lost sheep.”

Forgive and you will be forgiven.


With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.


Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.


Let anyone who has ears to hear, listen.


Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.


Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For it is the one who is least among you all who is the greatest.


But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.


If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.


Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.
