To Know Jesus is to Know His Father

John 14:7-14


When Jesus died, He left the Apostles.

Jesus Christ went to be with His Father.

Christ is God; He and His Father are One.

Christ said He was the way to His Father.


Christ became man to do His Father’s will.

Jesus was the face of God Almighty.

Everything that Jesus Christ said and did

Was a Revelation of His Father.


Christ gave His Apostles clear direction.

God’s salvation would become known through them.

They would perform miracles in Christ’s name.

Sanctify through preaching and sacraments.


Ask Jesus for salvation and Heaven.

He will say yes for what will get us there.


Patrick McCaskey
