Sermons on John
It’s Christmas Eve. We celebrate the coming of the Light of the World in Jesus.
Light brings a feeling of warmth. Even when it is cold outside, the sight of the sun can bring a feeling of warmth with it. Jesus is the Light of the world. He does not reflect the light like the moon does. He is the source of light like the sun!
Jesus calls His followers to be the light of the world. He calls them to go out and make disciples. You don’t have to have all the answers to all the questions before you go public with your faith. God has positioned you in someone’s life that will only hear the gospel message from you. All you need to say is, “This is what happened to me!”
Do you have a private faith or a public faith? Our faith is supposed to be visible to all. It is supposed to be shared. Our faith needs to permeate our whole person because most people can’t disconnect the “message” from “the messenger.” This is why our lives have to reflect the message we are trying to communicate.
Romans 5:12-21 Romans 10:17 Psalms 16:11 John 17:3 Hebrews 10:24-25
Do you see people the way Jesus saw people? Do you find yourself looking to something or someone other than God to quench you spiritual thirst? Do you represent Jesus in fullness of grace and truth? Jesus portrayed the fullness of grace and truth, not a balance of the two, and it is important to understand the difference between these two ideas. We should be passionate because of experiencing Jesus.
John 4:19-24 Psalm 98:4-9
Luke 22:31-34 John 21:3-11 John 21:15-19
When I face challenges, do I factor in God’s provision? Am I looking to Jesus to satisfy my spiritual hunger? How hungry am I for more of God? John 6:1-15 John 6:25-40 John 6:51-56 John 6:66-69 Matthew 5:6
God’s names reveal various aspects of His character. This week we study God’s most personal name: the name Yahweh, meaning “I AM.”
The apostles have a crown on their minds, but Jesus had a cross on His. Christ teaches us that service is true greatness. Serve out of gratitude for what He has done.
It is easy to have a personal image of God or Jesus, but the Holy Spirit is more difficult. However, the Holy Spirit is relational. He is our helper, our counselor, our teacher. He is the spirit of truth the spotlight on Jesus. Holy Spirit empower us set us ablaze.
