Sermons about Responses
"Crazy" co-workers are not irritating, your non-favorite or ones that have had a bad day. They are the ones that are mean-spirited and intentionally make you feel small. So how do you deal with them?

In recent weeks we have examined Biblical texts in the Gospel of John specific to isolating the miracles of Jesus. There were seven in number. Along with these seven miracles in the Gospel of John, there are also seven self-identifying statements from Jesus that we call “I am” Statements. Starting today, I want to show you these seven statements in their context so that we might better know Him as we seek to make Him known to others. I pray that our study will be extremely profitable for us in our own discipleship of knowing Jesus. The first is found in John 6:35. Let’s read just that one verse, but then keep our Bibles open as we consider the context that produces this statement.
