In John chapter 9 we see Jesus again declaring Himself to be the Light of the World. In this chapter we see the progressive revelation that the blind beggar has til he comes to the point of bowing the knee and worshipping Jesus.
Jesus reveals that He is the ‘Bread of Life’. If you want satisfaction in life, then Jesus is the place to go!
Reuben shares candidly how he has learned to overcome fear to share the best news that we will ever have to share. Be encouraged!
In our family service we looked at ‘I am’ sayings of Jesus – the children have been studying these in Sunday school. The question is asked – ‘what do you think about what Jesus said about Himself?’!
We see that Jesus placed great value on people. But then we examine the Parable in Luke 19:11-27 which shows that we are to invest what God has given us into people that do not yet follow Jesus.
This sermon, bringing to an end the Just Walk Across the Room series shows us a better way of living where People and Potential are prioritised. Jesus called the disciples and told them that there was something better than catching little fish – they weren’t the finished article but Jesus saw their potential.
The words of our personal stories (testimonies) and also God’s story (Gospel) have great power when told clearly and succinctly from the heart. This practical message gives us some pointers.
This is the second in the Just Walk Across the Room series. It shows the importance of developing Friendships, Discovering Stories and Discerning the Next Steps. Very practical.
Rod Barnett, the Festival Director for the Lancashire Festival of Hope, uses the calling of Matthew in Matthew 9:9-13 to show that there is a place for everyone at God’s table and that we no longer need to allow our past to dictate our future. Great message!!
We see how the message to the church in Philadelphia in Revelation 3 has a foundation in the Book of Isaiah. We see some great promises fulfilled in Christ and the idea of open doors of opportunity existing for us to serve God.
