Rather than focus on Christ’s words exclusively, the traditional approach of the churches has been to concentrate more on “church doctrine," or to rely heavily on the teachings of the Epistles, to bring one to enlightenment. That is why no preacher has ever given a sermon based “exclusively on Christ‘s words," to my knowledge. However the thoughts of men will always fall short of the truth, because there is only one source for it.“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me,” (John 14:6). When we view the ministry of Christ through His words, amazingly, it reveals His many purposes for coming to mankind. We are then able to view the Gospel of Christ with much greater clarity. This in turn allows us to witness His profound ministry as we never have before!
