Bible Talks from John



You Will Be Hated

Preached on March 15, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: John 15:18-25

Just as Christians receive the benefits of Jesus’ love with the father, so too we receive the consequences of the world’s hate towards him.


Witnessing To a World Who Hates

Preached on March 15, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: John 15:18-25

Jesus warns his disciples that the world not only hates Him but will also hate them. They are to witness to that world alongside the Spirit.


Fruit That Lasts

Preached on March 8, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: John 15:1-17

Apart from Jesus we can produce no fruit, no transformed life that will last for eternity resulting in God's glory and our joy.


Don’t Waste Your Life

Preached on March 8, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: John 15:1–17

Last week Jesus prepared his disciples for his death by reminding them that he’d be with them by his Spirit. This week Jesus warns them – and us – that a God-honouring life will only be reality for us if we continue to stay close to Jesus so that he continues to live through us.


The Spirit of Truth

Preached on March 1, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: John 14:15–31

Jesus has announced to his disciples that he is leaving and he reassures them that they won't be alone. They must trust Jesus that him going is better than him staying.


I Am The Way, The Truth And The Life

Preached on February 23, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: John 14:1-14

Jesus has announced that he is leaving and the disciples can’t come, at least not for now. They must trust him that he alone is the way to the Father.


God’s Way To God

Preached on February 23, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: John 14:1–14

There are so many opinions, issues and causes in our community that try to win our attention, and among the voices is Jesus calling us to follow him. In a sense, every passage in the Bible is written to show us that following Jesus would be the best thing we could do, but in this incredible passage Jesus really shows us why that’s the case. It’s centred around who he is, and like the disciples we may not be as confident of this as we’d like to think.


Betrayed and Denied

Preached on February 16, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: John 13:18-35

Jesus has given a model of love. Now he gives a command to love. In the midst of a betrayal Jesus demonstrates his continuing love and the fact that he truly is in a class of his own.
