God’s Day of Preparation

John 18-19

The “Day of Preparation” was the day the Jews prepared the Lamb for Passover and covered their doorways with its blood. Is it ironic that Jesus, the Lamb of God, was prepared and killed on the same day? Does God have a household that he prepared this Lamb for? Yes…it’s us!

Abiding & Practicing Jesus

John 15

Thursday evening: “I am the vine. You are the branches. Abide in me.” Jesus instructed us to abide, or remain, in him. What does this mean and what does it look like? Can we actually PRACTICE the Jesus-shaped life? You bet! As our hands get dirty (sin)…let’s wash in the water of the Word!

Come. Believe. Live.

3.8.20

The Everlasting Presence of Jesus = The Holy Spirit

John 14-16

Thursday evening: “The Helper is with you.” Jesus promised he would be with us always. How can this be if he is in one location? The Holy Spirit. Love is the identity he demonstrates. Love is the identity the Holy Spirit is infusing into each one of us and our family is marked by. We belong to Jesus!

Come. Believe. Live.

3.1.20

The Example of Jesus’ Identity

John 13

Thursday evening: “Just as I have.” Jesus said this several times during his final conversation with his disciples just prior to his death and resurrection. Love is the identity he demonstrates. Love is the identity he is infusing into each one of us.

Come. Believe. Live.

Jesus: Resurrection of Life

John 11

“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me shall live even if he dies and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?” 

– Jesus

Come. Believe. Live.

2.9.20

Jesus: Sacrificer of Life

John 10

Life is not about how much of myself I can take home, but how much of Jesus is at home within me and my Christian family.

“I am the good shepherd. I lay down my life for my sheep.” – Jesus

Come. Believe. Live.

Jesus: Light of Life

John 9

Am I blind? Or do I see?

“I am the light of the world; whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” – Jesus

Come. Believe. Live.

1.26.20

Jesus: Bread of Life

John 6

God is not working to fill our bellies but to satisfy our hearts.

“I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. Everyone who looks to me and believes shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.” – Jesus

Come. Believe. Live.

1.19.20

Jesus: Giver of Life

John 5

“Come to me that you may have life.” – Jesus

Come. Believe. Live.

11.10.19

My Father’s Child

John 5

“I only do what I see my Father doing,” he says. “I am God’s Son.” Jesus seems to have a secret behind all the signs and wonders. He is his father’s child. Could it be this simple? Does he desire the same for us? Can we be this Father’s children, too? Yes.

Shift 5: From Someone To Jesus

John 4(e)

“Someone is coming who will tell us everything,” she says. “He is the Messiah.” Who is this? What is this? And why does Jesus say that he is this Messiah? Could it be that the culmination of the entire Bible and God’s relationship with humanity is complete in this one man: Jesus?

Believe. Live.

10.27.19

Shift 4: From Division to Unity

John 4(d)

True worshipers worship in Spirit and in Truth. Huh? Jesus says this to the woman at the well in light of the obvious division between Jews and Samaritans. What is Jesus getting at? Could it be that the common ground, in regard to worship, is one of acknowledging the presence of God and knowing the God who is present? God is Spirit. Jesus is Truth. Let’s discuss…

Shift 3: From Natural to Supernatural

John 4(c)

The Holy Spirit. This week we see Jesus speaking about something he really should not have known. From this “the woman” tells the town that Jesus told her “everything she ever did!” How did Jesus know? This is the supernatural side of our faith in Christ: the Holy Spirit. How does God’s Spirit fill you to join him in bringing his Kingdom on Earth and speak life into those you love?

Believe. Live.

10.13.19

Shift 2: From Physical to Spiritual

John 4(b)

What do I need? This week we see how Jesus moves “the woman” in conversation to consider what she truly needs. Ultimately, he says he’s the source of that solution. Can this be true? Can Jesus be the source of all provision? If so, this changes everything! Not just for her, but for all of humanity.

Believe. Live.

Shift 1: From Present to Engaged

John 4(a)

Where am I? Seriously. Can I be somewhere physically but disengaged? Jesus is present in a seemingly random town. He engages with a seemingly random woman and soon she, and her entire town, is forever changed. Can we be like Jesus and not just simply be present but engaged with the people in our spheres of influence for the sake of the gospel?

PART 9: Spheres of Influence

John 4

Is my faith just for me? If I were to keep it to myself, would the people in my life miss out on eternal life? What if the Gospel is not about me, but God is gracious to include me in his grand move of life and salvation made available to all humanity? Join us as we discuss the impact of Jesus on an entire town through one woman at the site of an old well.

PART 8: Believe and Receive

John 3

The storm is coming. What do we do with a warning? Going through the Bible we see God has given us a warning (wrath = a clean up everything that is wrong) but that we are also in the path of the storm. In today’s text God lovingly tells us he’s taken the blow of the storm for us and provided us the way out: continued belief in Jesus.

Believe. Live.

PART 7: What We Can Expect

John 2

So, what can we expect of Jesus? John 2 sets up the reader of Jesus’ story to know we can expect abundance when our stock runs out, and zeal when we inhibit God’s life amidst our personal lives as well as our community.

Believe. Live.

PART 6: Walking with Jesus

John 1:35-51

Have you ever gone on a long trip with someone? Today we see Jesus inviting new friends on a 70-100 mile journey covering 3 days. These guys move from being curious to committed to following Jesus. How far will I follow Jesus? 

Believe. Live.

08.18.19

PART 5: The Lamb of God

John 1:29, 36

Jesus (aka. the Word) is the “Lamb of God” who takes away the sin of the world. What does this mean and is it really that important? Yes. Yes, it is.

Believe. Live.

08.11.19

PART 4: John “the Preparer”

John 1:19-35

Who was John “the baptist”? A very important figure as it was. He was asked, “Who are you?” The better question we consider is “whose” are you? As we belong to God we must answer “who is HE?”

Believe. Live.

PART 3: God takes on Flesh

John 1: 14-18

100% of Jesus’ humanity completely revealed and connected God and humanity.

Believe. Live.

07.28.19

PART 2: The Light

John 1: 5-13

Jesus (aka. the Word) is the source of light who radiates God’s message of life, coming into the darkness where all humanity exists, to be received or rejected.

Believe. Live.

07.21.19

PART 1: The Word

John 1:1-5

Jesus (aka. the Word) is the pre-existent, uncreated God who is the aspect of God which relates to humanity, and is the agent of creation.
