Sermons on John

Finished

In a powerful message, John highlights the deep sacrifice that Jesus made on the cross, urging everyone to trust in Jesus as their Savior. John’s words serve as a reminder of the ultimate love and redemption offered through Jesus’ sacrifice, encouraging all individuals to embrace this gift of salvation. Let us heed John’s call and place our faith in Jesus, accepting the grace and forgiveness that is freely given to all who believe.

Crucified Christ

Are you looking to gain a deeper understanding of Jesus and His significance in our lives? Look no further! We invite you to join us in understanding the life of Jesus and the significance of His crucifixion. Through this journey, we will learn about Jesus bearing the sins of many, His role as the king of nations, how His death fulfilled Scripture, and His care for His followers. Our goal is to gain a deeper understanding of Jesus as an incredible King and the only Savior.

Here is Your King

People do need the Lord. We need Him even more than we realize. We need Him for our very existence; all things were created by Jesus, and in Jesus, all things hold together (Col. 1:16-17). We need Him to be reconciled (made right) with God. “God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Cor 5:21 NIV), and by believing in Him, giving our life to Him, we will have life (eternal) in His name (John 20:31).

The Sufferings of Our Savior

While most of us are familiar with the physical pain Jesus endured, there was much more to His suffering. He faced rejection and denial from those closest to Him, and even those He came to save. Let us walk with Jesus and reflect on His great love for us by understanding the different forms of suffering He endured. By doing so, we can deepen our relationship with Him and gain a clearer understanding of what it means to be a follower of Christ.

How Firm a Foundation

The Church is built upon the firm foundation of the Prophets and Apostles, with Christ Jesus Himself as the cornerstone. What Jesus prays for the Apostles is significant, and from this prayer, we learn what is unique about these men, their biggest threat, and what they were set apart to do. We have the confidence that what we build our lives and our Church upon is a sure foundation that will never be shaken. We are also to be aware of what continues to threaten the building of the House of God as we look to extend the work of God in our world.

Behold Our God

Behold our God, in whom we have salvation, whose name is above all names, to whom we bow our knee in honor, and in whom we rejoice because we have life in His name. For most of this year, we have been spending our time getting to know Jesus better through the book of John. John tells us he wrote this book for us so that we would believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God and that by believing, we would have life in His Name (John 20:31).

Grief Into Joy

We all carry with us the burdens of separation and loss, we all have difficulties and painful situations we must walk through, and we all have things anticipated in the future. In our passage this morning, you will learn to harness the power of anticipated joy, trust the promise of permanent joy, and ask for the provision of ongoing joy. Jesus guides us and provides us with encouragement to continue our journeys in confidence that is fueled by joy. You may think that this is too good to be true, but it isn’t, and I expect God to do miracles in our hearts and lives this morning as we listen to the words of Jesus and walk through this passage together. The first thing Jesus offers us is to harness the power of anticipated joy.
