He Breathes Life – Sermon Video

John 11:1-7 New International Version (NIV)

The Death of Lazarus

11 Now a man named Lazarus was sick. He was from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. (This Mary, whose brother Lazarus now lay sick, was the same one who poured perfume on the Lord and wiped his feet with her hair.) So the sisters sent word to Jesus, “Lord, the one you love is sick.”

When he heard this, Jesus said, “This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God’s glory so that God’s Son may be glorified through it.” Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. So when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days, and then he said to his disciples, “Let us go back to Judea.”

Life in the Spirit – Sermon Video

John 14:15-21New International Version (NIV)

Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit

15 “If you love me, keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be[a] in you. 18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. 19 Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. 20 On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. 21 Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”

Reflecting on ‘Reflections From The Heart’ ~ Curriculum

On Sunday we took a break from our journey through 1 Kings and Pastor Jason shared some reflections from the book of John.

As we’ve done with our 1 King’s series in providing curriculum for you to follow along with your G2G group, so to have we provided curriculum for this week as well – even though it’s a little bunny trail off what we’ve been learning.

Take a while to watch the sermon if you missed it.

John 1:35-42

The next day John we there again with two of his disciples. When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, “Look, the Lamb of God!”

When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus. Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, “What do you want?”

They said, “Rabbi” (which means Teacher), “where are you staying?”

“Come,” he replied, “and you will see.”

So they went and saw where he was staying, and spent that day with him. It was about the tenth hour.

Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, was one of the two who heard what John had said and who had followed Jesus. The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, “We have found the Messiah” (that is, the Christ). And he brought him to Jesus.

Jesus looked at him and said, “You are Simon, son of John. You will be called Cephas” (which, when translated, is Peter).

    1.    John’s disciples decided to leave him in order to start following Jesus (v. 35-37).  What plans, attachments, or relationships are distracting you from Jesus?

    2.    How closely do you think John’s disciples were following Jesus when he turned around and asked them, “What do you want?” (v. 38). 

    a.    How closely are you following Him: could he whisper to you or would he need to shout?

    b.    How would you answer the question “what do you want?” if Jesus asked you?

    3.    Jesus invites the disciples to spend time with Him (v. 39) and they respond positively.  How much of ‘your’ time do you give to Jesus?  How much time do you have for others?

    4.    Andrew has such a great time with Jesus that he invites his brother to meet Him too (v. 41-42).  Does this happen today?  Why or why not?

    5.    Simon gets a new name. Peter (v. 42) in keeping with his character.  Pass around sheets of paper with your group member’s names at the top (one sheet per group member) and when each sheet gets to you, write down one attribute you appreciate about the person whose name is on the page. 

Give each person his or her page only when everyone has had a chance to complete the exercise. 

Celebrate together!
