    John 3:16 is a simple yet profound verse, which summarizes the whole of the Gospel.  In addition, it is noteworthy because these are the words of Jesus.  This verse can be effectively used in sharing the gospel as well as in giving your own personal testimony. Here is a summary of yesterday’s message in a way that can help you communicate its truth. There are four points to remember. The origin of our faith and salvation is … that the Almighty Eternal God loves us. (He is committed to our highest......

    Next Sunday we will be challenged as we continue our Study in John 3.  See if you can find the challenges in the rest of this chapter! In four different verses we are confronted with the importance of  “believing in Jesus.”  Our initial salvation begins with belief.  Then, ever growing in relationship with Jesus enlarges our faith in practical ways. The Holy Spirit is our ever-present help reminding us in the every-day-ness of life … that we are in the center of Christ Jesus and He is in the center......

   In John 2, Jesus exhibited His Passion for His Father’s house and His Father’s presence by overturning the tables of those extorting worshipers in the temple. That’s what He does.  He overturns everything in the believer’s life that hinders growth and transformation.  Our traditions, our attitudes, our selfish behavior and our character … at some point … will collide with His righteousness.  That is our opportunity for transformation.  Hebrews 12:27 indicates, “the removal of what can be shaken … so that what cannot be shaken may remain.” With His passion in......

   Jesus turned the water into wine because the servants did what He told them to.  (John 2:5-7)  He is always able to turn the common into something exceptional when we participate with him by doing as He says.  We have been given all things we need by His divine power for life and godliness and made to partake in His divine nature.  (2 Peter 1:3-4) As you allow the Lamb of God to lead you this week, let me ask you to consider these questions. What in your life has been......

  Jesus is the most amazing and awesome person to ever live on the earth.  In order to punctuate that, we simply need to understand who He is as the “Only Begotten Son of God.”  So… for those of you who could not write fast enough yesterday, or would just like to know, here are the elements written straight from the Greek Lexicon.  Enjoy worshiping the Son as you read. “ONLY BEGOTTEN” It is a unique relationship It does not have a beginning He is the sole representative of the being and......

Who is Jesus?  That question is one of the most important ones we can ever ask. It is an answer we must know in order to live in victory and fulfillment … especially during these troubled times.  All of life is centered in Him because God the Father has designed it so.  Without Jesus, nothing really makes sense because only He can give life meaning and purpose in all that swirls around us.  Only He can bring calm to the storm.  Only He can bring order to the chaos.  If you know......

Just a final reminder of our completed study in 1 and 2 Corinthians as we saw in our study of review yesterday.  Our theme for the last ten months has been “Transformed to embody the nature of Christ.”  Here is what we are being transformed to become: The demonstration of God’s power in the Spirit due to the Crucifixion of Christ.  1 Cor.  2:2-5 The temple of the Holy Spirit so we can live for the glory of God.  1 Cor. 6:19-20 A minister of the Lord manifesting the gifts of the......

Yesterday we came to the end of our study in First and Second Corinthians.  A new study will begin in January.  As I looked over the last verse that Paul writes to the Corinthians, I could not help but think of all of you during this Christmas season.  Whether you are here or away in these next couple of weeks, he expresses my prayer for each of you.  May this also carry us into a blessed new year as we have much to experience in the days ahead as we trust God......

  Let me add one more item to the message from yesterday that I did not have time to include from our study in 2 Corinthians 11.  When it comes to the simplicity of the gospel, beware of the enemy’s attempt to corrupt it with “add-ons.” Remember, salvation is in Jesus alone, not in anything that perpetuates Jesus and something else.    One denomination teaches that you must speak in tongues to be saved.  Another teaches that you are not saved unless you worship on the seventh day, Saturday.  Some teach that you are not......

Modern technology can be both advantageous and downright scary, depending on what is done with it.  But long before we had any of our devices, God was way ahead of the game.  Most of us depend on a GPS to find our way as maps have almost become obsolete. God’s GPS is eternal in nature and value.  In my study on the weapons of our warfare, He has shown me, what I like to call, “The 3 W’s,” His Will, His Way and His Word. Similar to a GPS, His Will pinpoints......
