The Jesus Series | John 7

“On the last day, the climax of the festival, Jesus stood and shouted to the crowds, ‘Anyone who is thirsty may come to me! Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, rivers of living water will flow from his heart.’ When he said ‘living water,’ he was speaking of the Spirit, who would be given to everyone believing in him. But the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus had not yet entered into his glory.” (John 7:37-39 NLT)

As we get ready to enter the Christmas season, we want to take a look at the issue of unbelief. Continuing our walk through the Book of John this week in the “Jesus Series,” we take a closer look at John 7, and the process of moving from unbelief as we come to Jesus.

The Jesus Series | Hope for a Future

“The time will come when I will heal Jerusalem’s wounds and give it prosperity and true peace. I will restore the fortunes of Judah and Israel and rebuild their towns. I will cleanse them of their sins against me and forgive all their sins of rebellion. Then this city will bring me joy, glory, and honor before all the nations of the earth! The people of the world will see all the good I do for my people, and they will tremble with awe at the peace and prosperity I provide for them.” (Jeremiah 33:6-9 NLT)

In light of everything going on in our world recently, it can seem like at times there is an overwhelming fear and hopelessness, as if the enemy is marching directly towards us. This week, we step out of our study of the book of John for a week, but instead Pastor Jesse unpacks a passage in Jeremiah 33, where we see the hope God gives us beyond the circumstances surrounding us today when it can feel like our lives are in chaos.

The Jesus Series | John 6

“‘Don’t be so concerned about perishable things like food. Spend your energy seeking the eternal life that the Son of Man can give you. For God the Father has given me the seal of his approval.’ They replied, ‘We want to perform God’s works, too. What should we do?’ Jesus told them, ‘This is the only work God wants from you: Believe in the one he has sent.'” (John 6:27-29 NLT)

In the beginning of John 6, a crowd of people witnesses Jesus feeding well over 5000 people with five loaves of bread and two fish. This week, Pastor Jesse draws his attention on the words from Jesus that immediately follows this story, for us to focus on what matters most and to focus on what God wants from us as He calls us to more.

The Jesus Series | John 5

“I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life.” (John 5:24 NLT)

In John 5, we read a story of Jesus healing a man who had been sick for many years. Bryan Feathers joins us this week, and as we read through this chapter, we see the Savior who gives hope to each of us, through God’s love, He is Emmanuel, God with us.

The Jesus Series | John 4

This week, Pastor Adam steps through chapter 4 in the Book of John, looking at a couple of essential ideas concerning our interactions with others and with God. Listening to those important realities to who Jesus is and how much He loves us, despite ourselves, opens us to be in a place where we can say God truly is my Everything as we live out that truth to the rest of the world.

The Jesus Series| John 3

“God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.” (John 3:17 NLT)

As we continue our walk through the Book of John, we look at chapter 3 this week, where we examine the idea that the purpose of Christ is to offer eternal hope, not judgement, to a fallen human race. Listen as Pastor Jesse looks at who this Jesus is, who came to save us and give us hope in this broken, fallen, and sinful world.

The Jesus Series | John 2

This week, we read through two stories about Jesus’ interactions with others in John 2, where we see what could be called an insignificant miracle and an unexpected reaction. As we look at these passages, Pastor Jesse makes some observations about Jesus in these stories that speak to the character of God and His cares towards others.

The Jesus Series | John 1

“In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him. The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.” (John 1:1-5 NLT)

This week we begin a journey through “The Jesus Series,” stepping through the Book of John, where we will get a better picture of who Jesus is as we lean in to know Him and walk with Him more closely. Listen as we read John 1 this week, where Pastor Jesse defines “The Word,” as it appears in those passages, and unpacks how it relates to who Jesus is to all of us.
