He speaks the truth about himself, about us, and about the world.
As a truthful friend, Jesus taught that He is God, that He came down from heaven to be a man among his creation, that He was sinless, that He would die on the cross for our sins, that He forgives sin, and that He is the only way to heaven.
As a truthful friend, Jesus taught that we are sinners, that it’s impossible on our own to be friends with God because of our sin, and that the only way to be friends with God is through him.
As a truthful friend, Jesus taught that this world is broken and needs fixing. Jesus promised to return and fix this broken world. On that day, there will be no more tears, no more sickness, no more pain. Creation will be good again through Jesus.
