That You May Believe
Why Should We Believe Jesus?
John 5:31-47 • January 17, 2021 • Bill Gehm
Jesus reveals the four witnesses that back Him up. John the Baptist, His work, the Father, and the Scriptures. Ultimately you have to believe based on the witness presented to you. Abide in His word and He will reveal Himself to you!
The Man Who is Equal with God
John 4:54-5:18 • December 13, 2020 • Bill Gehm
The third miracle of Jesus reveals so much to the people surrounding the story and to us. Jesus is the Son of God... He IS God! He has the authority to heal and to do it on the Sabbath. He is the Lord of the Sabbath! The man that Jesus healed didn't even know who was doing it, and when he did learn the name of Jesus, he betrayed Him. But this event set some important plots into motion.
Gourmet Jesus - The Banquet for The King
John 4:31-34 • November 22, 2020 • Bill Gehm
We all speak the language of food. Jesus used food to describe the Gospel and our part in it. People need the "Food" that Jesus provides. We (as Christians) are the laborers that need to harvest that food for the people who need it.
Living Water, "The Fountain of Eternal Life"
John 4:1-30 • November 1, 2020 • Bill Gehm
Jesus presented himself to the woman at the well in a completely different way than he had to anyone else. We all get thirsty. The woman was getting water from the well. Jesus asked for a drink, and then the conversation changed. She didn't even take her water pot when she ran off to tell the people she knew about the "Drink" that will quench a "thirst" eternally.
The Heart of God
John 3:14-21 • October 18, 2020 • Bill Gehm
John 3:16 is the most recognizable verse. It was spoken to Nicodemus by Jesus. It is a great place to start for new believers. It's also an important thing to re-center and re-focus your life around. Jesus died for Nicodemus, the people you witness to, and YOU!
Zeal for His House
John 2:11-22 • October 4, 2020 • Bill Gehm
When you look at John two you notice two very different views of Jesus. At the wedding, Jesus turns water to wine - CONVERSION... In the same chapter, Jesus makes a whip and CLEANSES the temple. It's important to note the order of these two events. You (the temple) don't need to be cleansed and then converted. Your conversion will cause a cleansing.
Water to Wine - Manifested Glory
John 2:1-12 • September 27, 2020 • Bill Gehm
Everyone knows the story of when Jesus turned water to wine. But why? There's a reason he chose a wedding for His first miracle, and there's a reason he chose wine. It had nothing to do with drinking or the wine itself... It has everything to do with purification and the cross that Jesus was to bear for your sins!
