Who do you seek?

Who do you seek?

John 18

This chapter records John’s account of the encounter in the garden and the start of the trial of Jesus.

In the garden we see the response of what happens when we truly encounter the “I am” .  This groupd of guys falls to their knees when Jesus says He is the one they seek.   

From there we are taken to a trial based on accusations and untruthful words that paves the way to the cross. 

Jesus explains that He is the king of kingdom not of this word. But one that is part of it. 

THE TRUTH.  A kingdom of truth and that standard by which all things are measured.   He is that King!



John 17:1-26

A chapter all recording a prayer from Jesus to His Father.  This prayer can be broken into three parts.

1 – He prays for Himself (vs. 1-5)

2 – He prays for His Disciples (vs. 6-19)

3 – And here is the part that I get excited about!  Did you know that Jesus, before He went to the cross, PRAYED FOR YOU! (vs. 20-26)

That’s right…Jesus prayed… “20 “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who [j]will believe in Me through their word; 21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. 22 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: 23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.” (NKJV)

Through out this prayer Jesus prays for unity among believers so that God the Father can be glorified.  The only way for glory to happen is when we come together and stand against Satan and things that come up against us.  We have to be an example so other want to come to that knowledge of Jesus and be able to spend an eternity with Him.

We all know that oil and water don’t mix.  When you put them together, you can shake it, mix it, stir it all you want but the two parts will eventually separate. 

BUT ADD AN EGG (An how appropriate that we have Easter eggs)

At the cross (Easter celebration) Jesus died and rose again for us to be able to have a way to have that Unity with our Heavenly Father.  We can emulsify into that relationship and oil and water mix together.

Are we showing unity and being a “good egg” to help the oil and water mix around us to God gets the glory and we show other what He is all about?

Why have the Holy Spirit

Why have the Holy Spirit

John 15:18 – 16:33

Why is it better that Jesus left and the Spirit came?

Jesus was in human form and could only be at one place at one time.  Can you imagine if that was still the case today?  Talk about a traffic jam of people trying to be in His presents and get guidance.

The Holy Spirit came once Jesus returned to heaven to prepare a place for us.  And we have the benefit of the Holy Spirit being everywhere with every believer all at one time.  

The Holy Spirit has several tasks in the life of a believer. First, he convicts the world of sin (16:8–9). Without believing in Jesus, we cannot be forgiven and redeemed.*

The Spirit of truth also convicts us of righteousness (16:10). He knows what is right and what is wrong; what is God’s will and what is not.*

Finally, the Spirit convicts the world about judgment (16:8, 11). Jesus declared that devil has already been judged. His end is determined. He will lose. All the conflict we endure until then reflect his ineffectual efforts to change our secured destiny with Jesus.*

I don’t know about you but I am so glad that as a believer I have the Holy Spirit with me at all times.  

What about you?  Do you know that you have the Holy Spirit?

If not contact us so we can explain to you how you can accept the FREE gift of salvation and receive all the benefits that come with it.

Are you a dipper?

Are you a dipper?

John 14:1 – 15:17

How strong are you?  Do you just dip into the power of Christ?

We should all strive to be bold and strong in our daily walk.  The longer and more often we infuse ourselves with what we find in the Bible, the deeper we will know Christ and we will resemble Him better and stronger.

When we abide with Jesus, the Holy Spirit open up more of the Bible and what it means so we can follow God and His will in our lives.

Make time to be in God’s word.  Get stronger and more robust in Him so those around us can see a difference.
