John

Following Jesus

John 1:35-42 At the beginning of a new year, we ask “what do we mean when we say we are followers of Jesus? What does this look like?” Followers of Jesus trust him, spend time with him listening to and learning from him, and embrace the new life he calls us to.

Into the Darkness

John 1:4-9 Christmas begs us to be honest with ourselves about the state of our world, but also about the state of our hearts. Jesus is the true light that gives light to everyone who came into the world (John 1:9). His divine light shines into the darkness of our world and reaches into the dark corners of our hearts. Light proclaims the truth. Light reveals the way. Light brings life.

Jesus’ prayer for you

John 17:20-26 We usually know what we want for ourselves, and what we really want most is often revealed in what we pray for. But what does Jesus really want for us? Jesus’ prayer in John 17:20-26 is, in many ways, our answer to this question, and it may surprise us.

Look to Jesus and be saved

John 3:1-17 As we listen in on this surprising conversation between Nicodemus and Jesus, some profound truths are revealed for us about how we can have eternal life. We must undergo a spiritual re-birth, made possible only by trusting in Jesus death on the cross. And even more astounding is that all this is an act of God’s incredible love for a world full of rebels.

A new day dawns

John 20:11-18 John’s Gospel records Mary Magdalene’s encounter with the risen Jesus. Today, we reflect on the significance of what Mary saw, heard and said that first Easter Sunday, and celebrate, with Mary, this fact – Jesus has risen!

It is Finished!

John 19:17-37 As Jesus hangs on the cross, and breathes his last breath, he cries out “it is finished!” The mission of salvation for which his was sent has been completed. All of the types, promises, and prophecies from the Old testament are now fully accomplished in him. This is a momentous proclamation, and it changes everything. As we look to the cross this Good Friday, we mustn’t miss the significance of what has been accomplished in Christ.
