His Commandment Is Eternal Life

John 12.47-50
May 8th 2011

Jesus said that He came to salvage the world, not to judge it; yet, His words are the standard by which all will be judged. To reject His Word (the commandment for eternal life that He received from His Father) is to reject Light, reject salvation, reject eternal...read >>

Messiah King, Suffering Servant

John 12.37-43
Apr 17th 2011

Isaiah saw what we must see. The effect of what he saw? "Woe is me for I am a man of sin..." Humility, an awareness of his sin, and, therefore, repentance: a turning to the Lord of mercy and grace... in other words: SALVATION!

Trust Me

John 12.34-36
Apr 3rd 2011

Can we trust a Man who speaks in such ways and says such things that we can't get our minds all the way around?

The Good Shepherd Prepares His Sheep

John 12.27-30
Mar 20th 2011

What a difference knowledge and understanding make. Without it, where would be in this battle against sin? With it, however, we know that Jesus has already won the war, though the faith-filled battle wages on.

Unless a Grain of Wheat Dies

John 12.23-26
Mar 6th 2011

A seed is a marvelous thing. So much potential packed into such a small package. Hundreds upon thousands of pounds of produce from one little capsule. Isn't God providential?!

But unless that seed undergoes a deep, thorough, and permanent change (even a death) it...read >>

The Hour Has Come

John 12.20-23
Feb 27th 2011

The hour has come? What does that mean?

Not just any hour, but the hour for Him to be glorified! But isn't this a strange way to glorify the Son?

Riding in on a donkey, squashing Jewish hopes of their kind of Messiah, being rejected by His own people... even to...read >>

Life Together

Transition

John 11.54-12.1
Jan 23rd 2011

A bit of a transition passage in store today. We start in Bethany, move to Ephraim, and back to Bethany... just when the fire is hottest and Jesus is in the middle of it!
