Christ calls his followers to be salt and light. He wants us to influence the world for its benefit and God's glory.
75-second testimony of how book came to be.
"How quickly the surroundings of your life can shift from the security and tranquility of an upper room to the harsh reality of Gethsemane and the cross." That's an unforeseen quote from our "Experiencing God, Day-by-Day" devotional for today, March 22nd, which nicely affirms last night's message. Will you follow Christ, anywhere? Even into your own Gethsemane? Your fruitfulness comes only through your Gethsemane. 65 minutes.
John 12:37-50 Even though Jesus had done many miracles for them, the people still did not believe. This passage explains why this was so and why this downward spiral of unbelief is still a reality today. But Jesus came to rescue people from the curse of unbelief and instead give eternal life to those who believe.
Part 23 in a series on the Gospel of John Paternity tests are telling, helpful and somewhat controversial. In Jesus' continued wrangling with the religious establishment, this time he turned the tables of ancestral suspicion right back on them, and the results were undeniable. Your reaction to the truth will either be pick up the stone of unbelief and rejection. Or, you will bow the knee to this One who is the light of the world and the best Big Brother who introduces you to and keeps you in a new relationship to the Father.
John 3:16 is perhaps the most famous Bible verse there is. It is often described as a "summary of the Gospel." It is a wonderful description of God's love for God's creation in sending God's only Son. However, seeing the verses that follow it "flesh out" the context of the community of the Gospel of John. This is not a verse about "who is in" and "who is out." Instead, it's about God's overwhelming love for creation from the beginning. Our response, then, is to continue in the "belief" of that overwhelming love of God for all.
The Preacher's Job "Shine The Light" Don't Tamper with God's Word. Preach the Truth.
Part 22 in a series on the Gospel of John Jesus is the self-authenticating, heaven-sent and heaven-validated light of the world who as a witness is true and as a judge is right. He is one with his Father. You must welcome the light of the world into your life, or your will perish in your sins.
While I am sure that I am not the most eloquent speaker, I'm so grateful that God is with me. Someone recently called me a cult leader and right away God's creation answered with a $1,000 gift. When the accuser spoke again, again God made His creation respond with a timely gift (of $10,000!). Almost makes a fella want to be persecuted for sharing the Gospel! Both gifts were given by folk who had not heard me declare Proverbs 22:4 through last week's sermon, "Humility and the fear of the LORD bring wealth and honor and life." In last week's "Cut, gutted and skinned" we heard that God wants to make disciples for the purpose of teaching all nations to obey Him. The indisputable answer to the question, "Are you teachable or touchy?" is in the indisputable fruit of your life right now - the fruit speaks of the root, people! The first seven minutes of this sermon contains testimony of Proverbs 22:4 being REALized in the pastor's life - to God's glory, honor, praise and pleasure - confirming the Word with signs that follow as is promised to every true disciple of Jesus Christ. After that, the lesson is offered. Will you learn to obey God? 58 minutes.
Now I'm a Jim Jones?! Really?! That's the accusation. Here's 14 minutes of what I stand for, an excerpt from the most recent sermon delivered in Michigan City, ND. John 15:18 "If the world hates you, know that it has hated Me before it hated you." Listen and YOU BE THE JUDGE!
