II. The Claim of Jesus (verses 23, 25-26)

III. The Clarifying Question (verses 26-27)

“Many Christians do not feel the inward peace which they desire… yet true Christians strive, as Paul says, to "comprehend what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height, and to know the love of Christ, which passes knowledge."  As they do, they are amazed at the discoveries they make. They soon find, like Hagar, that there are wells of water near them of which they had no knowledge. They soon discover that there is more heaven to be enjoyed on earth than they had ever thought possible. The root of a happy religion is clear, distinct, well-defined knowledge of Jesus Christ.”  ~ adapted from J.C.
