Back to the Future

John 17:20-26 – In this passage Christ prays for disciples in the future.  Ultimately this passage has people like you and me in mind.  Somehow this prayer is important to Christ’s plan.  Something is a threat not to happen except Christ prayed that it would happen.  When all is said and done, what is it that Christ prayed would happen?  (Power Point)

Praying for You

John 17:1-19 – In this passage Christ ends his teaching time with the Disciples by praying.  He begins His prayer by praying for Himself.  Then He prays for His disciples.  As His disciples seek to carry out the mission assigned to them by Christ, they will face opposition.  The comforting thing is that Christ is praying for them.  The very things that would seek to…

John 15:9-17 – This passage speaks of something like a circle.  As love flows out from the father, to the Son, to the disciples, to each other and finally back to the father for John says in 1 John no man can say he loves God if he doesn’t also love his brother.  To put it another way, you can’t say you love Christ if you also don’t love…

More Fruit Please

John 15:1-8 (Part 2) – Now that the believer is connected to Christ, the vine , in such a vital way, God expects that the branches bear fruit, much fruit.  What did He mean, what does He have in mind?   This message surveys the NT looking for how this fruit manifests itself in the life of the believer and the early church.  (Power Point)
