Sermons on John (Page 2)

Are We Not Peter?

John 18:12-26 – A sobering sermon that highlights the example Peter’s betrayal of Jesus. Peter’s three denials confront us with our own ability to fall into sin and shows us just the kind of people that Christ came to save. In this message, we look at the human heart and the incredible depths of sin it is capable of pursuing. We examine…

The Arrest of Jesus

John 18:1-14 – As Jesus begins his last hours before the crucifixion, His arrest teaches us many important lessons. Jesus went forward to confront His enemies – He was not caught by surprise. Instead, He went with resolve. He was in sovereign control at every moment and did nothing from a position of weakness. Though even His enemies drew back in fear…

The High Priestly Prayer – Part 3: The Unity of the Church

John 17:20-26 – Our final look at the Lord’s prayer for His people. Be encouraged that the Lord’s desire for His bride’s unity has not failed, despite appearances. The persistence of the church testifies that Jesus’ bride is in fact a growing and maturing body. Join us as we investigate unity from the world’s perspective (one example given is the French Revolution’s…

The High Priestly Prayer – Part 2: Kept by Jesus

John 17:6-19 – In the second of three section in our Lord’s high priestly prayer, Jesus intercedes for his disciples. We can draw significant encouragement from this prayer and discover that those who are in Christ are safely and firmly “kept”. This is the doctrine of the perseverance of the saints, in which we are preserved (or ‘kept’) by the power of…

The High Priestly Prayer – Part 1

John 17:1-5 – An introduction to Christ’s ‘high priestly prayer’ in which we introduce the three parts of our Lord’s petitions and investigate the first. We discover the significance of the role of the priest and how Jesus fulfills it from both the divine and mortal perspective. We also spend some time on the controversial doctrines of God’s sovereignty in salvation and…

The Secret to Spiritual Strength

John 16:25-33 – In this final sermon from the Lord’s ‘farewell address’, Jesus teaches His disciples some of the most important lessons for their upcoming trials. The disciples own words show their immaturity, yet the Good Shepherd’s rebuke is not delivered without encouraging last words. In this sermon, we focus on the pride of over-inflated religious knowledge and untested doctrinal bravado. We…

Whatever You Ask

John 16:16-24 – For the third time in three chapters, Jesus make some profound statements about prayer. Once again, we hear Jesus telling His disciples, “whatever you ask” will be answered. What does He mean by this? What can we learn from these three sections on prayer? What kinds of prayers does God truly answer? What is our response to this? Hear…

Divided Affections & The Hatred of the World

John 15:18-16:4 – Christians will experience the hatred of the world, Jesus guarantees it. In this sermon we examine what that hatred from the world means in the life of a believer – it is a proof of our salvation and an encouragement to press on. We also investigate what the converse means – if the world loves us, and we love…

Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled

John 14:1-3 – Jesus encourages his troubled disciples as he continues in what many consider his ‘farewell address’. What we learn is that it is merely a brief farewell, for we have a home with Christ for eternity and His words are the comforts of His people in times to trial. John 14:1-3 14:1 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God;…

I Have Given You an Example

John 13:1-20 – We look again at the example Jesus has given us by washing the disciples’ feet. Having learned about the greatest meaning of this living parable last week, now we look at how we ought to go and be doers of the Word. John 13:1-20 13:1 Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come…
