Book of John

You Are What You Eat?

Guard your heart and mind. You may become what you are consuming.

 

The Covenants of God

God made several covenants with man. Only God actually held up his end of the deal. He passed through the slaughtered sacrifice signifying that this should happen to him if he did not hold up his end of the pact. Jesus brought forth the final covenant in his blood. Thus, the Church age was born; the age of grace.

 

Jesus the Miracle Worker

Jesus came to seek and save lost people. But along the way he performed many miracles. Why? Does he still perform them today? John Chapter 2-9 He healed the rulers son, he turned water to wine, he fed the 5000, he healed the lame man at the pool of Bethesda, he opened the eyes of the blind.

 

Rice Christians

John 6: In John 6 Jesus feeds the 5,000 (plus) but that was not the main point. In Chapter 6 Jesus is showing the 12 disciples how quick men will turn on him. He is revealing HIS heart to have a relationship with mankind. A relationship that far exceeds just meeting the basic needs of men and women. Jesus reveals the shallowness and short shortsightedness of mankind: One minute they are rushing to make him King; within 24 hours all but the 12 will abandoned him and even one of the 12 will turn out to be a traitor. Where would you be?

The 5 Most Recognizable Words in the Bible

"The Lord is my Shepherd" Psalm 23 is arguably the most recognizable poem and scripture in the planet. We are sheep and God our Father has a Shepherds Heart.

 

Throwing Stones

John 8: You cant fool God. When the Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery to Jesus it was not the violation of the law they were worried about...
Jesus, the only one without sin and who had the right to throw a stone at her showed her grace instead.

 

Living Water: Are You Drinking From the Fountain of Life or the Drain of the World?

Jesus gave us living water that leads to eternal life and life more abundant. This life is found by applying the promises in his word to life. Unfortunately, many times, even Christians find themselves drinking from the fountain of ritual or the drain of the world. From where are you drinking?

 

Will "Good People" Make it to Heaven?

The truth about "good people". God can remove sin but he doesn't always take away scars. If God doesn't see you through the Cross you may be in trouble. (I tried to use some props but they failed 🙂 )

 

The WHY of Miracles

Jesus healed people but even his miracles were for his greater purpose of seeking and saving people from Gods judgment. His miracles proved that he was savior. They were not intended for fame or popularity. He was the Christ and the miracles pointed to that fact.

 

Which Way is Your Sign Pointing?

John 1-3: John the Baptist was a Sign that pointed to Jesus. By birth right he should have been above him but yet he said Jesus must increase and I must decrease. His whole life focus was to POINT to Jesus. So which way are we pointing? When people look at the sign of our life are we pointing to Jesus?

 

Who is your leader?

John 3-4: Who is your leader? What qualities do you look for in a leader? Jesus is the originator of the phrase, "I'll be back." Will you follow Jesus under cover of darkness or will you stand in the light and acknowledge to the world that He is your Lord and Savior? Will your encounter with Christ change your life and the way you live it?
