Dying in Your Sins

(2) Why is it so bad to die in your sins? (3) What kind of people are in danger of dying in their sins? and (4) How do you avoid dying in your sins?

The Light of the World

In John 8:12, Jesus declares Himself to be the light of the world. This message discusses five aspects of this "light" metaphor, as they apply to Christ. Light represents (1) Knowledge, (2) Life, (3) Holiness, (4) Gladness, and (5) the Messiah. Jesus then gives two choices to all hearers of the Gospel, either follow Him in the light or remain walking in the darkness.

God's Work in the Life of Nicodemus

This message examines the life of Nicodemus from his three New Testament appearances: John 3, 7, and 19. Three lessons are then drawn from the man's remarkable story: (1) Someone can be devoutly religious, outwardly moral, and full of Bible knowledge but still be completely lost, (2) Sometimes God works slowly in someone's conversion, and (3) A genuine believer cannot avoid public identification with Christ.

Rivers of Living Water

In John 7:37-39, Jesus first issues a grand invitation to spiritually thirsty people to come to Him and drink.  He then follows the invitation with a glorious promise, saying that, for those who believe on Him, from their innermost being would flow rivers of living water.  In this message, we examine what these things mean and then give applications for both Christians and non-Christians.

Jesus' Brothers

The first section of John chapter 7 describes the process by which Jesus attended the Feast of Tabernacles in Jerusalem. This message focuses on Jesus' unbelieving brothers, the advice they gave to Jesus about attending the Feast, Jesus' response to that advice, and the brothers' eventual conversion. We may learn lessons from Jesus' example for dealing with our own unsaved family members.
