Sermons from John

When the Need Exceeds the Resources

Date: May 2, 2010 | Speaker:

When faced with the impossible problem of feeding the five thousand, the disciples were unable to come up with a solution because they failed to factor Jesus into the equation. And yet, in the hands of Jesus, one boy’s small lunch became a miraculous meal that satisfied thousands. What impossible situation are you facing today? Have you remembered to factor Jesus into the equation and leave room for a miracle?

The Outrageous Claims of Jesus

Date: April 25, 2010 | Speaker:

Throughout history people have made many outrageous claims, but no one has ever made more outrageous claims than Jesus. If He were not able to back up those claims, He would be nothing short of a madman! And yet every single claim He made has proven to be true. What impact do His claims have on our lives today, and what decision have you made about this most important man in history?

Risking Everything to Meet Jesus

Date: April 18, 2010 | Speaker:

There are people throughout history who have risked everything to follow Jesus. Nicodemus was one such man. Although he was a member of the Pharisees who hated Jesus, he was willing to risk his reputation to have an encounter with the Savior, and after Jesus was crucified, Nicodemus was one of the men who helped bury Jesus. History tells us that he lost everything because of this, yet he was not willing to let anything hold him back from following the truth. Is there anything holding you back from following Jesus completely?

A Life-Changing Encounter

Date: April 4, 2010 | Speaker:

When we’re young, we all have dreams of how our life will turn out, but as time goes by, life looks very different than we ever imagined. Hardships and struggles set in, and often our own sinful choices leave our life tattered and torn. All our best efforts to fix it on our own leave us frustrated. It is only through an encounter with Jesus Christ that our old life can be transformed and exchanged for the brand new life that He offers to us. Have you had an encounter with Jesus?

Pointing Others to the Light

Date: March 28, 2010 | Speaker:

God could have chosen any number of miraculous ways to announce the coming of the Light into the world, but instead, He chose a man named John the Baptist to spread the news. To this day, God continues to use ordinary people like us to spread His light into dark places. Are our lives touching others with the light of Christ?

When God Came Down

Date: March 21, 2010 | Speaker:

God has been trying to get your attention! For centuries God tried to draw near to mankind by bringing His fiery presence to earth or by speaking through the prophets, but man continued to turn away. Then God sent His final Word to earth by wrapping Himself in human flesh and coming to live among us to show us the way. God has spoken to us through Jesus, and now we all have a choice to make. How have you responded?

Jesus — There’s Something About That Name

Date: March 14, 2010 | Speaker:

Was Jesus really who He claimed to be — the Son of God sent to save the world? Can simple faith in Jesus truly change a person’s life and their eternal destiny? Join us as we embark on an amazing journey through the Gospel of John to explore the life of this man named Jesus who has become the central figure in all of human history. Come discover what difference Jesus really makes!

What Does God Want?

Date: January 3, 2010 | Speaker:

Over the course of our lifetime we get asked thousands of questions, but very few of those questions are truly life-changing. However, there is one question that should change everything for those of us who are Christ followers, and that question is simply this: “What does God want?” Knowing what God longs for more than anything else will transform our lives completely and give us purpose like never before! Do you know what God wants?

Dealing With Your Past

Date: October 25, 2009 | Speaker:

Far too many people who get married and have children, try to build their family on the shaky, cracked foundations of their past. But just as no building can stand tall and strong if built on a broken foundation, so no marriage will ever stand strong if problems from your past are not first dealt with. The Bible says if we hide our sins we will not prosper, but if we confess and forsake them, we will find mercy. Are there any areas of “rust” in your past that you have chosen to just paint over instead of dealing with? Rust will always eventually show through the paint! God calls us to deal with our past so that we can build a strong family on a clean, solid foundation.

A Personal Commitment

Date: September 27, 2009 | Speaker:

Everything in life is just talk until we make a personal commitment to actually DO it. So often, the difference between people God uses greatly and people He doesn’t use comes down to which person is fully committed to Him. Is there an area of your life that you have been hesitant to commit the Lord? Why not give it to Him today?

Committed to Worship

Date: July 19, 2009 | Speaker:

It’s easy to show up at a church service on Sunday morning and worship… but how many people are merely going through the motions? God does not accept worship if our hearts are far from Him and if our lives are not fully committed to Him. Do you know what God is looking for in your life before your worship will be pleasing to Him?
