No Turning Back

John 6:60 The proper response to the Gospel is SURRENDER and DEATH Following Jesus means I no longer TRUST in my ABILITIES and I no longer PURSUE my own AGENDA John 6:61-68 Peter’s Response I can’t UNHEAR the TRUTH I can’t UNSEE the MIRACULOUS 1 John 1:1-4 I don’t UNDERSTAND but I know You are GOD I CHOOSE to STAND with You.

Life Through Death

John 6:51-58 Flesh and blood represent DEATH Why does Jesus death matter? Romans 3:23 Romans 6:23 Philippians 2:5-8 Isaiah 53:4-5 Hebrews 9:22 Eating and drinking represents BELIEVING and PARTICIPATING Why is death hard? Beyond death is unknown Death reveals how little control we have Death involves loss Death is permanent John 6:53-58

Letting Go – Be The Church Special Service

John 6:25-28 Give us something to do. John 6:29-31 Give us a sign. John 6:32-34 Give us what we want. John 6:35-40 I follow Jesus who loved me before I ever knew His name. I follow Jesus who provided a solution before I knew I had a problem. I follow Jesus who is powerful enough to keep me for eternity.

Jesus

John 11:1-36 The SUFFICIENCY of Jesus…REST in Him Human EMOTIONS can cloud our JUDGEMENT and steal our JOY SADNESS vs 3 FEAR vs 8 DEFEATED loyalty vs 16 QUESTIONING mind vs 21 CONFUSION vs 21-24 DESPAIR vs 32-33 CRITICAL spirit  vs 36-37 The POWER of Jesus…TRUST Him John 11:38-44 Hebrews 12:1-2

Grace

GRACE is the unmerited FAVOR of God. John 5:1-15 Cheap grace: desires the BENEFITS from God without a COMMITMENT to God. Cheap grace: feels ENTITLED to the BLESSINGS of God without any HUMILITY towards God. Gods grace: is born out of His CHARACTER not His ACTIONS. Gods grace: is focused on ETERNITY not TEMPORARY solutions. Gods grace: sees you at your point of greatest NEED.

Greater Faith

Now faith is the reality of what is hoped for, the proof of what is not seen. Hebrews 11:1 Faith involves… Something I DON’T HAVE Something I CAN’T SEE Something I STAND ON Taking a step of faith occurs when I ALIGN my DECISIONS and ACTIONS with the INSTRUCTIONS of Jesus John 4:46-53 The official’s FAITH began at a point of NEED and DESPERATION The official’s faith GREW as a result of his FAITH Taking steps of FAITH move us…

On the third day a wedding took place in Cana of Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, and Jesus and His disciples were invited to the wedding as well. When the wine ran out, Jesus’ mother told Him, “They don’t have any wine.” “What has this concern of yours to do with Me, woman?” Jesus asked. “My hour has not yet come.” “Do whatever He tells you,” His mother told the servants. Now six stone water jars had been set there…

Change & Truth

Change and Truth Jesus PURSUED people that the disciples AVOIDED John 4:4 Jesus ENGAGED the culture INTENTIONALLY John 4:7-10 Jesus knew that LIFE CHANGE was possible John 4:13-14 Jesus didn’t SHY AWAY from the TRUTH John 4:16-18  John 4:39-42

LIVE Forgiven

When they had eaten breakfast, Jesus asked Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me more than these?” “Yes, Lord,” he said to Him, “You know that I love You.” “Feed My lambs,” He told him. A second time He asked him, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me?” “Yes, Lord,” he said to Him, “You know that I love You.” “Shepherd My sheep,” He told him. He asked him the third time, “Simon, son of John,…

Live By Faith

But one of the Twelve, Thomas (called “Twin”), was not with them when Jesus came. So the other disciples kept telling him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he said to them, “If I don’t see the mark of the nails in His hands, put my finger into the mark of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will never believe!” After eight days His disciples were indoors again, and Thomas was with them. Even though the doors…
