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…

He Knows the Heart

John 2:12-25 – The Bible tells us, “The heart is deceitful and desperately wicked, who can know it? (Jeremiah 17:9) Actually, Christ knows the heart and He clearly demonstrates this in this next section of Scripture. Come away from this message with a renewed sense of the need for a clean heart and a right spirit before God who sees right through to the heart.

The Wedding Miracle

John 2:1-11 – Jesus just said that hereafter you shall see the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of God. In this miracle, the mighty God is to be perceived as acting in Jesus. The God of the OT has acted anew in Christ Jesus. This miracle is about more than helping humans out of a predicament, it is all about seeing the glory of Christ, and believing.

Easter Sunday – The Second Adam

John 4, I Corinthians 15 – The cornerstone hope of the Church is the resurrection of Christ from the dead. It points us to a hope that extends beyond this life to life after death. It is certainly true that knowing Christ makes a difference on how we live life today. The resurrection however, is more than just making this current life more convenient to live, it is…

Know It All

John 1:35-43 – Here is a thought that causes me to tremble: Christ knows all about my past, and he knows all about my failures. Here, however, is the comforting thought: He still chooses to want a relationship with me so that I may know all about Him. In John 1:43-51, Christ demonstrates this when He demonstrates a supernatural knowledge of His disciples, but the…

Who Are You

John 1:19-28 –  This message explores how John the Baptist serves as a mentor to us.  John the Baptist attained an almost celebrity status for his day.  Yet, John deflected any attention away from himself and always pointed people to the true great one, Jesus Christ. We learn that our worth can never be found in ourselves nor our achievements.  It is always about…

Living in a Tent

John 1:14-18 –  In this message we explore the beauty of the Old Testament tabernacle. It was a place people could point to and say “God dwells among us right over there, in the tent.” The “Skekinah Glory” was a visible cloud and fire associated with the glory of God. The High Priest had limited accesses into the Holy of Holies once a year on…

Hard to Swallow

John 6:46-58 –  Christ says some things in this passage that are,… well, hard to swallow. What He says caused many Jews to stumble and choke. When Christ says to them, and to us, “Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you,” what did He mean? Was He being literal?
