Jesus The Living Word Part 34 | You Can Lead a Horse to Water | John 12
The key to John 12 is the story of the raising of Lazarus from the dead (from John Chapter 11). We follow the stories of 3 witnesses and/or contemporaries who saw the miracle or knew it happened. Yet all 3 had different reactions. All 3 were led directly to the living water …. but not all were thirsty. The message points out the stages of growth as we get closer to Christ and also highlights how the raising of Lazarus was a catalyst moment that through a series of connected actions and events led to the crucifixion of Jesus. The key point is that God is sovereign and even with our free will choices, his will prevails.
