Jesus the Living Word Part 44 | Followers of Jesus and the World | John 15:17-27

One might think that following Jesus is a rather easy thing to do and accomplish. But it is not an easy following. It will transform your life if you will let Jesus make the changes in you, and you will be better for it. But the world in many ways does not appreciate a true Christ follower. Jesus takes time to explain the tension we may face with the world but the promise of His presence and the work of the Spirit in us can overcome it.

Foundations in Discipleship and Church Life Part VII – Obedient Living

(Adapted from Sonlife’s Foundations) What was it like for you to grow up? Was obedience easy or hard for you? We can have wide and varied responses, right? But Jesus modeled, taught and lived out a life of obedience to the Father. In so doing he was giving us all a picture of how to live life the way it was meant to be lived.

Jesus the Living Word Part 43 | A Sacrificial Love | John 15:12-17

What makes a person make a snap decision to protect someone from an injury and they take the hit instead themselves? Love. Jesus will narrow down the invite to his lads that they would be willing to love each other so well, that they could rise to the highest standard of sacrificial love even to die for one another. Jesus modeled and lived it out, and not just for his friends, but the whole world.

He reveals the 4 stages of fruit bearing qualities and the potential end results of going deeper in our walk with him.

Jesus the Living Word Part 41 | Pathway of Living is Loving Obedience | John 14:22-31

There is a TV show that shows the comings and goings of folks at local airports. Goodbyes can be very hard for many of us, especially if the goodbye means a very long time before you get to see one another again. Jesus is in the same spot with his team of men. He is saying goodbye but he is also telling them of the soon arrival of the Holy Spirit. Isn’t it great to know that the Lord has not left us all alone but has given us a wonderful friend in the Spirit of God?
