That You May Believe

A Study of The Gospel of John  (John 20:24-31)

The Gospel of John is the Greatest Love Story Ever Told. It is the story of the relentless pursuit of a shunned Lover (Jesus) who ultimately sacrifices His life to pay the debt of His love interest (mankind). John provided us with this story so that we may believe. (John 20:30-31)

Introducing Jesus AKA God In The Flesh. (John 1:1-18)

When you were in school, do you remember learning how to write an introductory paragraph? I believe that the Apostle John was paying attention in his Hebrew Literature class. For, he starts the gospel bearing his name with a bold proclamation that surely arrests the attention of his Greek audience.

John The Baptist AKA The Humble Witness (John 1:19-39, 3:22-36)

In John 3, John the Baptist responds to his curious disciples with the following statement: He (Jesus) must increase, but I must decrease. (John 3:25-30)  What enables John to make such a powerful statement?  Humility!!!  Join us as we explore the humility of John the Baptist. 

Can I Get A Witness

(John 1:35-51)

What's your favorite law show...LA Law, Law & Order, The Practice, Judge Judy, Matlock?  Great lawyers use the testimony of witnesses to prove their case.  John the Apostle utilized the testimony of eyewitnesses to prove that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God.  Join us as we, the jury, examine his argument.

Just Do It

(John 2:1-11)

Have you ever found yourself overthink a situation?  You had prayed about it and received an answer but fear paralyzed you from moving forward.  Well, there are times when we must Just Do It".  Regardless of our finite understanding, we must trust Jesus.  Join us as we explore trusting Him.  

Could Your Temple Use Spring Cleaning (John 2:12-25)

As a result of his Zeal for God's house, Jesus used his authority to cleanse the temple of the corrupt business dealings.  How about you? Are there some things in you that could use some cleansing?  Have you given Him the authority to do some spring cleaning?

You Must Be Born Again (John 3:1-21)

Jesus addressed the curiosity of Nicodemus by stating that entrance into the kingdom of God was dependent upon him/her being born again.  That is the reason God sent Jesus.  Not the miracles but that we may believe in Him and be born again.  (John 3:16-18)  Do you believe?

Jesus Is The Living Water (John 4:1-26)

In 1965, scientists from the University of Florida invented Gatorade to address the dehydration taking place amongst their football players. The result was Gatorade. In like fashion, some of us are in need of Living Water for our spiritual dehydration.

It's Not About You.  It's About Jesus! (John 4:27-42)

There are times in which we are reluctant to share our faith. Why? Fear!!! And as a result, we selfishly keep the great news of the gospel of Jesus Christ to ourselves. But the Woman At The Well teaches us that it is not about us. It is about Jesus.

Who Is This Healer?  (John 5:1-15)

There was a man who had been lame for 38 years sitting at the Pool of Bethesda.  Sincing his desperation, Jesus asks the man if he would like to be made well.  Sounds like a peculiar question.  But do you know anyone who wants to be healed but does not want to do what it takes to be healed?    

Who Is This Healer? (Part 2)  (John 5:1-15)

Have you ever been critiqued, criticized or even attacked for trying to help someone? Jesus has!!! In John 5, the religious leaders seek to persecute Jesus for healing the lame man at the Pool of Bethesda on the Sabbath.  But that is not the primary point of the story.  Join us as we discuss the purpose of the healing.  (John 5:14-18)

Turning A Little Into A Lot (John 6:1-14)

Jesus asked Philip where could they buy bread to feed the large crowd that flocked to them.  Responding out his lack of resources, Philip says that they do not have enough money.  Andrew follows with a similar response.  Jesus acts out of His ability to turn a little into a lot.  Sounds like a good mother.
