A New Life
In Jesus’ Own Words
Why did Jesus come to earth? Did He need to die upon the cross?
What is His message to us today?
These are important issues and, through this booklet, Jesus answers these questions for you in His own words.
Taken from the four Gospels and the book of Revelation, “A New Life In Jesus’ Own Words” makes clear what Jesus is offering each of us for our lives.
As you read the words of Jesus contained in this booklet, my prayer is that you will joyfully embrace the reality of a new life in Christ; a new life filled with an abundance of grace, mercy and unchanging love.
God bless you.
“The words that I speak unto you,they are spirit, and they are life.”
JESUS - JOHN 6:63
Why did Jesus come to earth?

A Word from Wayne
In 1972, when I was 20 years old and didn’t even believe God existed, I had an experience with Jesus that forever changed my life.
A friend at work began sharing with me that it was possible to have a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
I thought to myself that, if this indeed was the truth, I wanted it. At that point I knew, if I never honestly opened my heart to God, I would always have the “but-what-if” question lingering in my mind.
And now, many years later, I continue to thank God every day for the tremendous joy, peace and contentment I realize because I know Him. He is the Living Water within me and His springs constantly nourish my soul. My own feelings are well expressed in the words of King David, “Thy lovingkindness is better than life” (Psalm 63:3).
His Life is always A New Life - it gets better every day.
In His Loving Grace,

“Whosoever cometh to Me, and heareth My sayings, and doeth them, I will show you to whom he is like: He is like a man which built a house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.”
JESUS - LUKE 6:47-48
