This week we begin a 4-week series entitled “Now What?” Now that the shock of the resurrection sinks in, what comes next?
Is He Really Alive? For us the answer is “yes”, but we still fail to fully understand that Jesus is “still alive”. In this first sermon of our series we explore the doubts of the disciples and the dawning of the new implications for Jesus being alive. Scripture References: Luke 24 and John 21
On Easter Sunday we celebrate the resurrection. This week we will look in the right places for life.
Scripture Reference: Luke 24: 1-12
In older translations of John 15 the key word is “abide”. In the NIV and other more recent translations the key word is translated as “remain”. We want to know some basics with this because it is difficult to get around John 15:5, “apart from me you can do nothing”. Learn what it means to remain in Jesus. He is the vine, we are the branches.
Scripture Reference: John 15
Scripture References: John 14: 1-10
This passage includes one of the most controversial statements in the Bible, at least to people outside of the church: “I am the Way the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” This verse is connecting to the Old Testament. We will look at those verses to uncover a bit more about what Jesus meant. More troubling to people today is the thought that there even exists “The Way”, “The Truth”, “The Life”.
So how do we speak to what we believe into a skeptical and hostile modern world view? Join us this Sunday to find out.
This week we will focus on 2 ideas: the shepherd lays down his life for the sheep and the sheep hear his voice. This is a very often overlooked statement and a marker of a Christian… Do we hear the voice of the shepherd? If not, as Christians we need to seriously grapple with Jesus here. He said, “the sheep listen to his (the shepherd) voice”.
Scripture Reference: John 10: 1-20
