John

That You May Believe

The Cross. Foolishness or Power?

May 1, 2022 • Bill Gehm • 1 Corinthians 1:18, 1 Corinthians 2:1–5, Matthew 12:47–49, Luke 2:33–35, John 10:17–18

Crucifixion was a brutal, terrible act of violence that Jesus was willing to endure because of His love for us and our salvation. He died victoriously and paid our price in full!

Passionate Love Rated R

April 24, 2022 • Bill Gehm • John 19:1–16, Isaiah 53:3–6, Isaiah 53:10, John 3:14–17

Jesus wants our hearts. He loves us so much that he was willing to die for us. He was beaten, bruised, broken, and bloodied to the point of being unrecognizable. He experienced this all for us. He was despised and rejected as he bore our griefs and carried our sorrows. He was wounded and bruised for us, and by His stripes, we are healed! Our Lord reigns!

Truth.

April 10, 2022 • Bill Gehm • John 18:28–40

Jesus came to earth to bear the witness of truth. He IS The Way, The Truth, and The Life. The sheep hear His voice in the crowd as He calls us to His eternal kingdom. He is the Passover lamb that was sacrificed in our place out of abounding love. When you hear His voice, answer.

Peter Denies Jesus

April 3, 2022 • Bill Gehm • John 18:15–26

Like the Denials of Peter, we also go astray. Thankfully, Jesus still rescues us, redeems us, and uses us for His Kingdom despite our past, present, and future failures.

The Great "I AM"

March 27, 2022 • Bill Gehm • John 17:24—18:24

Liar, lunatic, or The Almighty God? Christ is the great "I AM" who takes away the sins of the world. He loved us even when we were his enemy and was willing to go to the cross for us. In the garden of Gethsemane (oil press) Christ was was being pressed and crushed to the point of sweating blood. The Father's grace saved us from ourselves. Jesus' greatest desire is for us to be with him... He wants to show us His glory.

The G.O.A.T Prayer...Jesus Prays for His Bride

March 20, 2022 • Bill Gehm • 1 John 4:16, John 3:16–17, Luke 17:13–26, John 13:34–35

The fruit of a life surrendered to Christ is one who remains connected. Let’s be Christians who walk in unity despite our unique functions.

The G.O.A.T. Prayer...On A Mission From God

March 13, 2022 • John 17:6–19

Jesus calls us to love people! We need to focus everything we do on leading people to Him. We are a gift from the Father to the Son, therefore use your gift to lead others to that GIFT!

The G.O.A.T. Prayer...Jesus Prays for Himself

March 6, 2022 • Bill Gehm • John 17:1–5

The purpose of the glory of Jesus the Holy Spirit and the Father is to show LOVE. Jesus wants us to know that love. Jesus prays this to God the Father in the 17th chapter of John.

Peace During War

February 27, 2022 • Bill Gehm

When Jesus talks to the disciples about peace, it's the day before He is taken to be tried and ultimately crucified. Jesus expects us to be connected to Him. If we are we will have His peace even in the midst of war!

Christian Joy... It's Inevitable

February 20, 2022 • John 16:12–28

Your sorrow turning to joy sounds strange and difficult, but if you know Christ, it is a promise, you will have joy! Jesus explained this to the disciples using an amazing illustration that still holds true today.

The Holy Spirit Advantage

February 13, 2022 • John 16:7–15

We have been gifted the Holy Spirit, and He will point us to Jesus. He is our new best friend, help, advocate, comforter, counselor! He dwells in and with you. Rely on the Holy Spirit!

Mission Impossible

February 6, 2022 • John 15:16–27, John 16:1–11

What is your mission in life? God needs you and a special agent, but you are not alone He has sent a Secret Agent to help!

In Trouble with the World.. Why Do People Hate Us?

January 30, 2022

Just after Jesus taught us that we should love one another and that we need to be connected to Him, He lays a big one on us! The world is going to HATE you! But he tells us this so that we know the truth. It's not easy to follow Christ. Trust Him and His Holy Spirit!

Abide...The Key to Everything

January 23, 2022 • John 15:1–17

Jesus commanded us to love one another. It's how we abide in His love, by following His commandments.

Hanging with Jesus
