Portrait of Jesus

And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me (John 12:32).

John, in his writings, painted a beautiful portrait of our Lord and Savior:

John 1 – Jesus is the way which must be followed by man.

John 2 – Jesus is the temple, which can never be destroyed and through which man is able to be with God.

John 3 – Jesus is the light for a world in darkness.

John 4 – Jesus is living water for a world thirsting to death.

John 5 – Jesus is the healing for a world crippled by sin.

John 6 – Jesus is the living bread for a world starving.

John 7 – Jesus is life for a world who knows only death.

John 8 – Jesus offers forgiveness for a world who knows only guilt.

John 9 – Jesus offers sight to a world blinded by sin.

John 10 – Jesus is the good shepherd who lays down His life for His sheep.

John 11 – Jesus empties the graves of those obedient unto Him.

John 12 – Jesus is lifted up so those who are beaten down by sin may be lifted up.
