Following Jesus: A Call to Die - John 12 pt.4

December 3, 2023 • Pastor Scott • John 12:20–26

There are varying definitions, in our world today, of what it means to be a Christian. Some people base their definitions off of what they've heard or maybe been taught. And then again, some just base it off of what they feel or think. But thankfully, Jesus did not leave us in the dark regarding what it means to follow him. In fact, he is very clear…to follow Jesus is a call to die to ourselves!

Abide - John 15 pt.1

April 21, 2024 • Pastor Scott • John 15:1–11

In John 15, Jesus emphasizes the importance of abiding in Him as the key to a fruitful life. He uses the metaphor of a vine and branches to illustrate this deep spiritual truth. Just as branches remain connected to the vine to receive nourishment and bear fruit, believers are called to abide in Jesus, drawing strength, wisdom, and life from Him. Jesus assures His followers that by abiding in Him, they will experience His love, joy, and peace in abundance. This command to abide in Him challenges believers to cultivate a close, ongoing relationship with Jesus, relying on His presence and power for every aspect of life.

Promises - John 14 pt.3

April 14, 2024 • Pastor Scott • John 14:12–31

Too many times, when our hearts and minds are troubled, instead of looking to Jesus and trusting in His promises, we look to ourselves and trust in our own abilities, reasoning, and understanding. And when we don’t find peace, comfort, or encouragement, we wonder what’s wrong. What’s wrong is that we are looking at and trusting in the wrong things. We should constantly celebrate, rejoice in, and remind ourselves of the promises of God to us in Christ. For the promises of God, found in Scripture, are an anchor of hope and assurance in the midst of life's uncertainties.

Our Triune God - John 14 pt.2

April 7, 2024 • Pastor Scott • John 14:7–17

The doctrine of the Trinity has been and continues to be a fundamental doctrine of the Church. It has weathered an onset of attacks from the past to the present and still stands strong because the truth of God will always endure! As believers who hold to a high view of scripture, it is important that we think correctly and biblically about this essential doctrine.
