Sermons from January 2022
The Church can joyfully participate in the work of missions because: Jesus reigns over human history Jesus conquered the power of death Jesus accomplished a global salvation Jesus is worthy of all worship
1) Jesus going to the cross was not an unavoidable tragedy but a purposeful act of salvation (18:1-4). 2) Jesus sovereignly showed His power over those who would arrest Him (18:5-6). 3) Jesus protected His follower’s faith even as He does today (18:7-11). 4) The insistence of Judas and the leaders to arrest Jesus warns us of how cold or even resistant we can be towards Jesus (18:12).
Our video livestream did not work today. However, click above for clear audio of the sermon. 1) Jesus Prays for Your Unity With Other Believers (John 17:20-21) 2) Jesus Prays that Even the World Will Know That the Father Loves You as He Loves Jesus (John 17:22-23) 3) Jesus Prays for You to Be With Him in Heaven To See His Glory (John 17:24-26)
