Jesus the Living Word Part 12 – John the Baptist’s Final Testimony of Jesus – John 3:22-36

We live in a time where people can so easily get distracted in ministry or in life to be the one who is always noticed or seen. But imagine the role of John the Baptist; he was to introduce Jesus to the world and then after running a very successful ministry he would fade away into the wood work. Not an easy thing to do that’s for sure, but John had his focus centered on the Lord and was able to make the transition from being known to letting Jesus take front and center, which is a principle we all need to learn.

Jesus The Living Word Part 11 – The Gospel in a Nutshell – John 3:16-21

John 3:16 is quite possibly the best known and best loved verse in all of scripture. The verse gives a clear view of God’s love for sinful humanity, and the sacrifice he made for us. It is common to focus only on the great love of God in this verse, but in looking closely at this verse and the verses following there is also a clear view of God’s justice and his great mercy and grace in not condemning sinners despite our having broken God’s laws.

Jesus the Living Word Part 10 – Face to Face with Jesus – John 3:1-15

What if you had an opportunity to talk with Jesus; what kinds of questions would you ask? Would it be a casual conversation or would it go deep very quickly? Would you think you could control the conversation or would Jesus quietly move you into the matters that really are heart felt and need a discussion. Today a religious leader has such an encounter with Jesus; he gets to ask a few questions and then sits back to listen to Jesus enlighten him.

Jesus the Living Word Part 9 – Jesus Goes Public in Jerusalem – John 2:12-25

How does one make an entrance into a room, or a meeting or to meet new people? Making an entrance with speaking a rebuke and using a whip and turning over tables; would that catch people’s attention? Yes it would. Would that be a good PR move? Not really. But that’s how Jesus went public in Jerusalem, and he got the attention of the religious leaders of his day. But how would the general public react? Let’s take a look and see.

Jesus the Living Word Part 8 – A Sign of Glory – John 2:1-11

Practicing hospitality can be fun, challenging, but one hopes that it should also be a rewarding experience. But imagine to be able to say that Jesus came to your wedding one day, that would be a conversation starter for sure. And in the same breathe be able to talk about an amazing gift of close to 180 gallons of wine that showed up somehow and saved the day and the wedding celebrations. Was it a coincidence that Jesus was there? I think not.
