True Happiness (The Beatitudes):

Jesus said,

Happy are those who know they are spiritually poor; the

Kingdom of Heaven belongs to them!

Happy are those who mourn; God will comfort them!

Happy are those who are humble; they will receive what God has promised!

Happy are those whose greatest desire is to do what God requires;

God will satisfy them fully!

Happy are those who are merciful to others; God will be merciful to them!

Happy are the pure in heart; they will see God!

Happy are those who work for peace; God will call them His children!

Happy are those who are persecuted because they do what God requires; the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to them!

Happy are you when people insult you and persecute you and tell all kinds of evil lies against you because
you are my followers. Be happy and glad, for a great reward is kept for you in heaven.
This is how the prophets who lived before you were persecuted."

For God loved the
world so much that he gave his only Son,

but to be its Saviour
. (3:16-17)

"This is how the judgement
works: the light has come into the world,
but people love the darkness rather than the light,
because their deeds are evil. Anyone who does evil things

But whoever does what is true comes to the light
in order that the light may show that what he did was
in obedience to God."

whom God has sent speaks God's words, because God gives
him the fullness of His Spirit."

be hungry; he who believes in me will never

whom my Father gives me will come to me. I will never

who sent me that I should not lose any of all those he
has given me, but that I shall raise them all to life on
the last day. For what my Father wants is that all who
see the Son and believe in him should
have eternal life."

him comes to me."

life is God's Spirit; man's power is of
no use at all. The words I have spoken
to you bring God's life-giving Spirit."

Jesus said, "What I
teach is not my own teaching, but it comes from
God, who sent me. Whoever is willing to do what
God wants will know whether what I teach comes
from God or whether I speak on my own authority.
A person who speaks on his own authority is trying
to gain glory for himself. But he who wants glory
for the one who sent him is honest, and there
is nothing false in him."

is thirsty should come to me and drink.

you free

free
."
(8:34-36)

Jesus said, "He
who comes from God listens to God's
words."
(8:47)

you the truth, before Abraham was born, 'I Am'."
(8:58)

We know that God
does not listen to sinners; he does
listen to people who respect him
and do what he wants them to do
. (9:31)

Jesus said, "I came
to this world to judge, so that the blind should
see, and those who see should become blind.
If you were blind, then you would not be guilty;
but since you claim that you can see, this means
that you are still guilty."
(9:39,41)

Jesus said, "I am the
good Shepherd. As the Father knows
me and I know the Father, in the same way
I know my sheep and they know me.
And I am willing to die for them. There are other
sheep
which belong to me that are not in this sheepfold.
I must bring them too; they will listen to my
voice, and they will become one flock with one
shepherd
. The Father loves me because I am
willing to give up my life, in order that I may receive
it back
again. No one takes my life away from
me
. I give it up of my own free will. I
have the right to give it up, and I have the
right to take it back. This is what my Father
has commanded me to do."
(10:14-18)

resurrection and the life. Whoever believes
in me will live, even though he dies; and

die."(11:25-26)

remains no more than a single grain unless it
is dropped into the ground and dies.

it; whoever hates his own life in this world
will keep it for life eternal. Whoever
wants to serve me must follow me, so
that my servant will be with me where
I am. And my Father will honour anyone
who serves me."
(12:24-26)

Jesus said, "The light
will be among you a little longer. Continue on
your way while you have the light, so that the
darkness will not come upon you; for the
one who walks in the dark does not
know where he is going. Believe in the light,
then, while you have it, so that you will
be the people of the light." (12:35-36)

Jesus said, "You
call me Teacher and Lord, and it is right
that you do so, because that is what I am. I, your Lord
and Teacher, have just washed your feet. You,
then, should wash one another's
feet. I have set an example for you, so that you
will do just what I have done for
you. I am telling you the truth: no slave
is greater than his master, and no messenger
is greater than the one who sent him."
(13:13-16)

Jesus said, "I am telling
you the truth: whoever receives anyone
I send receives me also; and whoever receives
me receives him who sent me."
(13:20)

I give you a new commandment: love
one another. As I have loved you,
so you must love one another. If you have
love for one another, then everyone will know
that you are my disciples."
(13:34-35)

Jesus said, "I am telling
you the truth: whoever believes in me will
do
what I do - yes, he will do even greater things,
because I am going to the Father. And I
will
do whatever you ask for in my name,
so that the Father's glory will be shown through the
Son. If you ask me for anything in my name,
I will do it." (14:12-14)
