Do As I Have Done

In John 13, Jesus does something that may seem to familiar to us this week. He moves from the large crowds of the previous chapter to a small group of close friends. In this setting He teaches them about love and service through His example. Even in uncertain times, we can still show His love. […]



If You Had Been Here

The seventh major sign Jesus performs in John outdoes all the others. Everyone knew death was final. Jesus opens the door to resurrection. Because of Him, we can have life.  



I Can See

The healing of the blind man is more than just the sixth sign in John. It is more than just a change from blindness to sight. It is a journey in how he sees Jesus. What role does Jesus play in our lives?

Another Chance

The woman dragged before Jesus could not have felt more helpless and hopeless in her situation. But Jesus had something else in mind. He still offers hope to the hopeless.  



Walking on Water

As they begin to cross the lake, the apostles are traveling without Jesus. When the storms arise, they encounter Him walking across the lake. The rest of the trip is smooth once they are traveling with Him. Where is Jesus in your journey?  



Loaves and Fish

Until the week of His crucifixion, there is only one event in the life of Jesus that is recorded in all four gospels: the feeding of the five thousand. We can learn a lot about Jesus and what He prioritizes through the lessons of this story.  



Signs

In John 4 and 5, Jesus heals two people who come from very different places in society. We learn that His power is not bound by location or law, and His compassion extends to all kinds of people. Although the miracles themselves are amazing, the signs always point to Jesus.

Words of Life

We often remember Nicodemus because he came to visit Jesus at night. Instead consider what he brought when he visited Jesus: an open mind. Nicodemus knew that Jesus was from God, so he wanted to learn as much as he could about how to find life.  



Water Into Wine

The first miracle of Jesus recorded by John is not a life-changing healing or the feeding of a multitude. Jesus changes water into wine for a wedding that had run out. Even in this first sign we learn that Jesus always goes above and beyond what is expected.
