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…

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…

If I Do Not Wash You, You Have No Share with Me

John 13:1-11 – The disciples were shocked that Jesus would stoop so low to wash their feet, but Jesus said it was necessary. Look with us as we uncover the depth of this living parable and learn what it means to trust the sin bearer who took our shame. (NOTE: Audio quality is very bad due to technical challenges, but the sermon…

Restoring the Influence of Christendom by Restoring Families

2 Corinthians 6:14-15; Matthew 28:18-20; Genesis 1:28 – In this topical sermon we look at the family’s role in the grand, culture-changing themes of making disciples and taking dominion. In the Bible, the first institution established by God was the family, and to that small group of people God gave a critical mission. If we are to be faithful family men and…

Predestination in John’s Gospel

John 10:22-30 – One of the most compelling and clear areas in scripture where the doctrine of predestination is taught is the Gospel of John. Jesus demonstrates that belief in Him is tied to belonging to Hm from eternity past. In this sermon, we first look at the context which calls our attention to national Judaism, the antithesis of the gospel. Against…

I Was Blind But Now I See, Part II

John 9:13-41 – We revisit the blind man who was healed by Jesus and consider the response to Christ’s work. In this second of two parts, we discover that the truth about Jesus presses men to react and forces a confrontation with truth. At such a turning point, there is only belief and unbelief. We look at the Pharisees and their domineering…
