When He's Not the Center

John 5:38-47 • February 3, 2019 • Brian McCormack

What happens when Jesus is not the center of our lives? What are we to do when we realize He isn’t in His rightful place? This passage doesn’t just pose the questions, it provides the answers. He’s provided the map of how people get lost — it’s on us to follow it back home.

John 5:30-39 • January 27, 2019 • Brian McCormack

Jesus-Centered Healing

John 5:1-18 • January 6, 2019 • Brian McCormack
