Sermons on John (Page 5)

Three Marks of Following Jesus

John 1:35-42 – Having seen who Jesus is, and heard Him proclaimed by the prophet-herald John the Baptist, we now look at what Jesus does – He saves sinners. The story of the first disciples illustrates what faith is, and what it means to become a disciple of Jesus Christ. John 1:35-42 35 The next day again John was standing with two of…

Behold, the Lamb of God

John 1:24-34 – John the Baptist announces the ministry of Christ with the glorious annunciation “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” In this great title of Christ, our sacrificial lamb is presented as our singular righteousness, and all other efforts to atone for sin are insufficient. Here is a challenge to put off empty religious…

Who Are You?

John 1:19-23 – John the Baptist stirred up a nation with messianic fervor, prompting the Jewish leaders to send a delegation to ask “Who are you?” John’s response pointed only to Christ, and teaches us that we, like the Jewish delegates, easily place our hope on lesser messiahs, mere shadows, and miss the One whom the entire Old Testament proclaims. John 1:19-23…

Introduction to the Gospel of John

John 1:1-18 – John’s Gospel is unique among the four records of Jesus’ earthly work and ministry.

The Word Became Flesh

John 1:14-18 – Among the Bible verses that rank up there in the top 10 most significant sayings in scripture, this is certainly among them. “The Word because flesh and dwelt among us.” This amazing sentence describes the beginning of the focal point of all of history. Why? What’s the significance of the Word becoming flesh? John 1:14-18 14 And the Word became…

Becoming a True Child of God

John 1:9-13 – God has come to his people in the form of a man. Deity incarnate. How much more natural a vessel could God have chosen for His creation to see and understand? To what else in this world can we relate to more naturally than another man? But many in John’s day did not see the incarnate deity, Jesus Christ.…

You Can Be An Effective Witness for Christ!

John 1:6-8 – John the baptist was sent by God to be a witness for Christ. God intends for all Christians to be witnesses for Christ. So what makes one an effective witness for Christ? From this text, we will look at three important aspects of being a witness for Christ. John 1:6-8 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name…

The Light is Victorious over Darkness

John 1:1-5 – The apostle John helps his readers to understand something about light and darkness. Something that we, too, also need to cling to. John proclaims in this text that the light is victorious over darkness. The text answers questions like: Why is the light victorious over darkness? How can we be sure that darkness won’t eventually win out? John 1:1-5…
