Jesus took on the role of the lowliest person present to wash the feet of his disciples. Jesus models absolute humble service, teaching us how we ought to serve others. The way others know that we are followers of Christ is how well we love one another. We need the cleansing of Jesus if we are going to live lives of love.
Jesus Meets us where we are in life, based on our true need. Jesus loved both Mary and Martha, but he responded to each of them differently because of their needs. You, likewise, are the one who Jesus loves, and he knows where the struggles and the pain are.
Our perspective affects everything. We may be convinced of the true of a thing until we get more information. Once we have complete information, we can also have a correct perspective. John chapter 10 challenges our perspective of who Jesus is.
Because sin entered the world through the fall, all of humanity has been negatively affected; some physically, some emotionally, but all of us spiritually. People need a work of God in their lives. We all need to have our eyes opened.
Who is Jesus? Jesus makes many claims about himself and who he is. Some are fairly subdued claims, and others are quite overt and controversial. We need to recognize that Jesus is God, and not a bit less.
“If anyone thirsts…” In John chapter 7, Jesus makes another “I am” statement. He says he is the “living water.” As we look at our own lives we should ask ourselves what we thirst for, and if we are coming to Jesus to quench that thirst.
The Israelites were provided manna from heaven during their wandering. Likewise, we have been given bread from heaven; the bread of life. Today we explore what it means for Jesus to be the bread of life.
Life admittedly gets busy for us all. The challenge we face is to be aware of what God is doing around us. Let us try not to miss what He is doing because we are distracted by other cares.
John 4:1-151. Christ’s life is available to everyone John 4:16-262. Our desire for this life is like thirst John 4:27-423. We can help others receive life
What is it to be born again? People have many varying definitions and understandings of what that phrase means; some positive and some negative. Jesus and Nicodemus talk at length about this topic, recorded for us in John chapter 3.
Have you ever seen an offer that seems just too good to be true? In order to believe something that is being offered to us, we have to trust the source of the offer. Trust is foundational in all relationships.
The gospel of John is an eyewitness testimony of his experience with Jesus. He wrote his gospel so that those who read it would believe that Jesus is the Son of God, and that we might have life in His name.
