Jesus - Your Personal Life Coach

There are many modern people who use a life coach to help them achieve certain goals. I believe Jesus can help us set some good goals as well. Sometimes He will challenge us with a statement and other times He asks us questions that may push us. Either way, we should listen to what He has to say.

Here is a sample of some of the things Jesus has to say to us today:

  • "Come, follow me" -Mk 1:17
  • "Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me." -Jn 14:1
  • "Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you." -Mt 5:42
  • "Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven." -Mt 5:44-45
  • "Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." -Lk 12:33-34
  • "Don’t be afraid; from now on you will fish for people." -Lk 5:10
  • "Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet." -Jn 13:14

  • "You cannot serve both God and money" -Mt 6:24
  • "Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life." -Jn 5:24

  • "Your faith has saved you; go in peace." -Lk 7:50
  • "Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?" -Mt 6:25

  • "Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?" Mt 7:15-16
  • "Everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand." -Mt 7:26
  • "Be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves" -Mt 10:16
  • "If any place will not welcome you or listen to you, leave that place and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them." -Mk 6:11

  • "Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." -Mt 11:29
  • "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?" -Mt 16:24-26
  • "Give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s" -Mt 22:21
  • "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself." -Mt 22:37-39

  • "Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day." -Jn 6:54

  • "But what about you? Who do you say I am?" -Mk8:29
  • "What comes out of a person is what defiles them. For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and defile a person." -Mk 7:20-23

  • "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened." -Lk 11:9-10
  • "No one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again" -Jn 3:3
  • "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?" -Jn 11:25-26
