Hebrews 1:1-3, Hebrews 4:14-16
A sermon on John 8:48-59. Jesus was making outrageous claims in the eyes of the religious leaders. They reverted to racism in response. In response Jesus claims His deity by stating “I Am”.
A sermon on John 9:1-9. The moralist sees human suffering as punishment for individual sins and human prosperity as blessing for individual righteousness. Jesus said this man was born blind no because he sinned but to bring God glory.
A sermon on John 9:10-25. Jesus did a miraculous sign on the Sabbath. How do we lay hold of the cure for our spiritual blindness?
A sermon on John 9:26-41. The Pharisees try to get the man Jesus healed to contradict himself. Jesus’ miraculous healing was a proof of where Jesus is from. Jesus pursued the healed man. The man did not pursue him. A proper response to knowing Jesus is the “Son of Man” is to worship Him.
A sermon on John 10:1-10. We need to understand sheep to understand fully what Jesus is saying. What is the “Call” Jesus extends to the sheep?

A sermon on John 10:25-42. This phrase “you are gods” comes from Psalm 82. What does it mean? Jesus declares about Himself – “sanctified” and “sent”. Vs. 37 – “Do not believe me UNLESS…”
A sermon on John 11:1-16. We see in this chapter the human and emotional side of Jesus. Who are these three friends? Is Jesus’ response unloving? What does Jesus mean “the twelve hour day”?

A sermon on John 11:38-45. Jesus raises three people from the dead. The first (a ruler’s daughter) was only dead a few moments. The second (a widow’s son) was only dead a few hours. Lazarus was dead for several days. Lazarus’ physical resurrection was more than just a third major blow to the reign of death in this world. It was a perfect representation of regeneration and the new birth. It represents Ephesians 2:1-10.
A sermon on John 11:45-57. The religious leaders had two idols, the temple and the nation. When they heard that Jesus had raised Lazarus from the dead they believed it and yet chose to kill Jesus rather than lose their two idols. What are our idols that we choose over Jesus?

A sermon on John 12:20-26. This passage takes place during Holy Week. A group of Greeks seek to talk to Jesus. His reply is related to his upcoming death. In comparison to loving Christ it needs to seem that we hate our lives – not to despise them, but to choose Jesus over ourselves.

Divine love that cuts through gender roles to encourage it as the goal of all.
A sermon on John 13:6-30. Vs. 6-11 A washing that must take place if anyone is ever to have any part with Christ. Vs. 12-17 Understanding the symbolism of foot washing and doing to others what Jesus did with His disciples. Are you ready to serve others this new year?
A sermon on John 13:6-30. Last Sunday’s sermon was also on this text. This week’s looks at it from the perspective of “Who is regulating the affairs on this earth today – God or the Devil?” How Satan’s temptations, schemes and plan play right into the hand of God and work to fulfill God’s purposes.

A sermon on John 13:31-38. The glorification of God in Jesus. One of the primary litmus tests for identifying believers is if we “love one another as Jesus has loved us”. The prediction of Peter’s denial. We may be more willing to die in a blaze of glory then to die to self daily.

The Holy Spirit convicts the world of judgement because the prince of this world has been judged.

A sermon on John 16:16-24. Jesus’ disciples and us, we often don’t understand. There is a pain that turns to joy. There can be two very different emotional responses to the cross. Rejoicing in the very thing that brought us pain and grief after the pain has passed. (Like a mother in child birth.) Joy comes from the very things that cause us pain. The need for trials to form and mold us. Don’t let your pain go to waste. Weaning us off of all but Jesus.
