Worship Wars

John 4:19-26– What if you thought you knew how to worship only to discover you did not know how to worship?  How would you discover the problem, how would you know to correct the problem?  Come away from this message confident as God looks for the right kind of worshipers.  (Power Point)

The Good Shepherd

John 10:11-15 – It is not uncommon to find animals dying for humans.  The whole OT sacrificial system was based on this premise.  A human might die for another human, that happens sometimes.  Would it ever be right for a human to die for an animal?  Christ explores this theme in John 10:11-15 as the good shepherd who lays down his life for the sheep.  In this…

Look and Live

John 3:11-21 – As Jesus continues his conversation with Nicodemus, Christ turns to what should have been a familiar story to Nicodemus from the times of Moses.   Israel complained to God about their circumstances, blamed Moses for the mess they were in and God sent deadly snakes in judgement.  Israel cried out to Moses and admitted, “We have sinned.”  In…

You Must Be Born Again

John 3:1-10 – This is an important conversation between Nicodemus and Jesus.  Nicodemus has never thought of himself as ever needing to be born again.  Christ makes clear that since he never thought of it, that means Nicodemus is on the outside looking in at the kingdom of God because every man is born the first time on the outside, dead in trespasses and sins with…
