John

Glow

September 29, 2019 • Ben Norvig

Baptism Sunday! Pastor Ben brought us a redemption message out of John 18 and 21. Do you remember when Peter denies Jesus before the crucifixion and then Jesus asks Peter, 'After breakfast Jesus asked Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” “Yes, Lord,” Peter replied, “you know I love you.” “Then feed my lambs,” Jesus told him. Jesus repeated the question: “Simon son of John, do you love me?” “Yes, Lord,” Peter said, “you know I love you.” “Then take care of my sheep,” Jesus said. A third time he asked him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt that Jesus asked the question a third time. He said, “Lord, you know everything. You know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Then feed my sheep.' John 21:15-17 Jesus gives us all the opportunity to respond, "I love you."

Validation Examination

September 22, 2019 • Todd Doxzon

“Many people did believe in him, however, including some of the Jewish leaders. But they wouldn’t admit it for fear that the Pharisees would expel them from the synagogue. For they loved human praise more than the praise of God.” ‭‭John‬ ‭12:42-43‬ ‭NLT‬‬ Whose acceptance and approval do you live for? MEN OR GOD’s? Many of us strive for the approval of those around us. How we look, what we do and what we have and what others say about us are frequently the things that we rely on to determine our worth. This kind of acceptance is TANGIBLE but it is TEMPORAL. However, we read in Ephesians that God calls us CHOSEN and ACCEPTED. This love and approval that come from Jesus is INTERNAL and ETERNAL. “Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.” ‭‭Galatians‬ ‭1:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬ Check out our website! https://lovechurch.org How to Know God: https://lovechurch.org/how-to-know-god/ Join a Small Group: https://lovechurch.org/small-groups/ Join a Serve Team: https://lovechurch.org/serve-teams/ Social Media Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/lovechurchglobal Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lovechurchglobal Twitter: https://twitter.com/lovechurchomaha

But God

September 1, 2019 • Mike O'Connell

In John 6 we read about the miracle of Jesus feeding 5000 men (probably 20,000 or more total). This account is in all four Gospels and we know from the different account that the disciples approached Jesus with a suggestion...send the people away so they could eat. Jesus response...”You feed them.” Here enters in the dilemma...how in the world are they supposed to feed 20,000 people on such short notice? In a lot of ways in our lives we face what seems like impossible situations like this one... We can choose to bring God our “not enough” and watch how over time our “not enough” turns into more than enough in the hands of Jesus. What is he calling us to give to him? Andrew realizes all they have to give to Jesus is a little boys lunch (5 loaves and 2 fish) And what are the disciples perspectives? “But all we have” Matt 14 “But we have only” Luke 9 “But what good is that” John 6 Doesn’t that sound a lot like the BUT in our current circumstances...

Pool Party

August 25, 2019 • Todd Doxzon

What is your CONDITION? Spiritually, Emotionally, Physically... “Crowds of sick people—blind, lame, or paralyzed—lay on the porches. One of the men lying there had been sick for thirty-eight years.” - John 5:3, 5 NLT When Jesus meets us in our condition He is going to ask us QUESTION. When Jesus saw him and knew he had been ill for a long time, he asked him, “Would you like to get well?” - John 5:6 NLT This is not a trick question. We have to decide that we want Jesus’ healing touch on our condition. Even in our complaining and disbelief Jesus loves us and will encourage us to: “Stand up, pick up your mat, and walk!” John 5:8 NLT In our own strength this is impossible, but in and through Him we can do all things. When we obey the command then we receive the capacity. We can be CURED! Instantly, the man was healed! He rolled up his sleeping mat and began walking! John 5:9 NLT We don’t know why God heals some and not others, but God is still in the miracle business. Watch POOL PARTY and be inspired by our King Jesus!
