Looking for a King on Earth

We return this morning to the book of John, chapter 6, and today we are looking at the aftermath of Jesus’s last miracle, the feeding of the five thousand. We identified that miracle as the fourth sign given by John to prove the fact that Jesus is in fact the Messiah, and we also noted that these signs are almost always accompanied by a related discourse.

A Solid Case

We have here in John this morning another fascinating passage. They really all are, of course, but when we really look at these passages in human terms, as we’ve tried to do for the last two weeks with this story, when you get into your mind the shocking nature of these confrontations and conversations, by imagining them play out in front of you, the results are exactly that, fascinating.

The Son of the Father

We come again to the gospel of John this morning, here on our third Sunday in February. You know we started this series already back in early September, but this is such a glorious book full of so many truths that it will take us until the end of February to get through chapter 5! I remember when I was a kid, and we had a new pastor, and one of our primary goals was church growth, so he did what many pastors do in that situation, and he started preaching through the book of Acts, since there are so many lessons about how the church grows when you watch how the church actually grew.

The Pool of Bethesda

Last week we considered the lessons for us in the story about the official’s, or the nobleman’s son. It was the second sign that John points to in his gospel to prove to us that Jesus is the promised Messiah. We’re going to keep seeing these signs, because they keep proving that point, as we go through the book, and they’re going to get more intense, more powerful.

The Harvest

Last week, when we were meditating on worshipping “in spirit and in truth,” I mentioned briefly, as a side point, the revival in preaching that took place during the Reformation. Before the Reformation, the church had almost abandoned exposition of the words of scripture, and had turned their focus toward ritual and formalism, really distracting from what the people needed, which was to hear the gospel, hear the Word. I think that’s something we need to keep standing up for, with vigilance, because I think we have a similar problem today.

Conviction, Belief, and Learning to Worship

Here we come to the second of our sermons on the story of Jesus meeting the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well. We looked last week at the first 15 verses. If you missed it, the recording and full text should be online already. But I can give you the high points.

We looked at some of the background to the great divide between the Jews and the Samaritans, how it went back hundreds of years. And of course when we considered the depth of the animosity between the two peoples, we were able to see how surprising such an event was, a Jewish man even talking to a Samaritan woman.

Living Waters

We turn this morning again to the gospel of John. We’ve finished with chapter 3, one of the most often-quoted chapters of scripture in the entire bible, and it is remarkable what we’ve uncovered so far. If you remember back to the very beginning of this series, when I introduced the book of John, I mentioned that of the four gospels, it holds a very unique place. Since it was likely written a bit later than the others, and John seems to assume that his readers know the content that is in the other gospels, the gospel of John has the opportunity to do two things that the others do not.

Too High to Comprehend, Yet So Simple

We have the joy again this morning of coming to God’s Word. To open it, to read it, to study it, to unfold the truths that it has for us, and to apply it to our lives. It’s been another tough week in our lives as a nation, thinking especially about goings-on at the national political level. But in the end, those things have less impact on our lives than our personal struggles. Undoubtedly it’s been an even tougher week for many people individually.
