John 20:31 (NASB)
31 But these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.
On day four of Christmas, we are reminded of the four Gospels. The first four books of the New Testament—Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John—all tell the story of Jesus’s life, but each is told from a different perspective. The word “Gospel” means good news, and the Gospels all share the good news that Jesus is the Son of God, the Christ, and by believing in Him we may eternal life. Jesus described Himself as “the Way, the Truth, and the Life,” the only way to God. We can know Him through reading His story in the four Gospels.
Thank You, Lord, for letting us know about Jesus’s life and hear His own words in the Gospels. Let us come not only to know about Him but to know Him personally and intimately. We ask this in His holy name. Amen.
