John

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.

Satisfied in Christ

John 4:1-15 There is a hole in every human heart which only God can fill. The woman in today’s passage was desperately longing to have that hole filled. Her longing for love had led her into serial marriages and other relationships which only left her empty and rejected. That day Jesus offered to quench her spiritual thirst with “living water”. Our world is full of people like this. Some realize that their lives are empty. Others don’t. Some are trying…

The Way, Truth, and Life

John 14:1-6 Life can sometimes throw us into a spin. When this happens, how do we avoid getting dizzy? We need to fix our eyes on something steady and sure. Easter gives us a chance to do that, as we look again to the One who has defeated sin and death. In this message, we’ll think about something Jesus said just before He died. We’ll be reminded to fix our eyes on the One who is the Way, the Truth…

Come and See

John 1:43-51Nathanael was searching for the one who would set things right for Israel, but when Philip announces that they’ve found this one, he doubts. This story shows us what evangelism in a world of seekers and sceptics requires, both from us and from Jesus.

What difference does knowing Jesus make?

John 15:1-17 When Jesus calls us to follow Him, He is calling us to a changed life, and this process of change the Bible calls holiness (or sanctification). Because of ingrained sin and its devious influence, there is always work for the Holy Spirit to do in us in order to “conform us to the image of Christ” (Romans 8:29). Slowly but surely, as the Spirit exposes our sin, we are to take whatever steps are necessary to kill off…

Relationships

John 4We often thirst for relationships to give us satisfcation and a sense of significance. But they inevitably let us down. The Samaritan woman in John 4 knew this all too well. But Jesus comes to her and offers her living water. We discover that there is one relationship which can truly satisfy and offer us a sense of significance – our relationship with God found through Christ. Let us come to him and have our thirst quenched.

A Unique Baby

Millions of babies are born every year around the world.  Billions have been born throughout history.  But one baby born 2000 years ago was unlike any other baby ever born.  The birth of Jesus was absolutely unique, but why?  Listen in as Pastor Murray shares with us three special reasons that help us understand the true meaning of Christmas, and make it relevant to each of us personally. John 1:1-5  and  1 John 1:1-4
