“The King is Coming” John 12:12-19

What happens when our excitement causes us to create unreal or even wrong expectations? Do we run with excitement or let patience and endurance have its work? What do we do when excitement wears off? There is a danger when we tend to find ourselves seeking an experience rather than allowing something to be built....

“The Purpose of Poorness” John 12:1-11

Worship is complicated. Worship can be musical, but there is far much more to it than that. Worship is not about us; worship is about God because it flows from what we have received from Him. Worship must be offered in obedience to the Spirit and Word of God. In our text, Mary pours out...

“Grace and Truth Bring Conviction and Change” John 11:45-48

In the first chapter of his gospel, John established Jesus’ identity, character, and purpose. He showed that not only is Jesus the only way to the Father, but He is also the only picture of the Father. Why does Jesus matter so much? Because there is nothing true outside of Him. He is the truth....

“Resurrected and Set Free” John 11:35-44

Are we willing to let Jesus do what He came to do in our lives? Are we willing to push through the hard questions, and even unthinkable commands, so that He could do more than we could imagine? Jesus came to teach us, through Lazarus, that death has no power over Him. The enemy came...

“He Meets Us” John 11:23-39

John said that Jesus did many more things than what has been written because it could not all be contained. The things that were written were chosen so that we would believe that Jesus is the Son of God. Belief is the key to salvation which comes through interaction, seeing God, and experiencing Him as...
