An Enacted Parable

Just hours before His arrest, Jesus performed the lowly task of washing the feet of the disciples. Christ calls us to follow his example – to be be willing servants of others. Jesus also explained to Peter that if a person has bathed, he only needs his feet washed daily. In the same way when we believe in Christ, our sins are forgiven once for all,…read more

Jesus the Humble Servant

On the eve of His crucifixion, Jesus took on the lowly task of washing the disciples' feet. Jesus "showed the full extent of His love," not only by washing their feet, but by dying for the sins of all. Although He possessed sovereign authority as Emmanuel, God with us -- He stooped to serve. May we make the specific choice to cultivate humility (1Peter 5:5).

Free from the Fear of Death

Without hope in Christ, the fear and denial of death are very real. 1 Corinthians 15 tells us that the Gospel frees us from the fear of death. When the disciples and over 500 others saw the resurrection of Jesus, they believed that He was the Messiah. When we believe the truth of the Gospel, we experience salvation. We also can agree with the writer, “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” 1 Corinthians 15:55 (ESV)

Why Jesus was Raised

The resurrection is evidence that God accepted the sacrifice of Jesus as explained in 1 Corinthians 15:17. If Christ did not rise, our faith is worthless and we are still in a state of unforgiveness, answerable to the holy God for our sin. "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. (1 Peter 1:3)" This hope is freely available to all who believe. Let us worship the risen Jesus!

The Fith Sign

John 6:16-21 recounts how Jesus walked on the water to the disciples' boat during a storm. Jesus affirms His deity, as only God is sovereign over the seas. The disciples are terrified - a normal response for all who encounter His power and holiness and realize their own sinfulness. Jesus tells the disciples, "Do not be afraid." Jesus rescues us from fear through His love and grace. Christ's sacrifice on the cross brings salvation to us and allows all who put their faith in Him to approach God without fear.

The Fourth Sign

In John 6:1-13 Jesus displays His compassion as he gives up comfort and rest to miraculously serve the hungry crowd. He reveals his omnipotent power by multiplying the loaves and fishes of a small boy, and he creates more than enough to supply the needs for all.

The Third Sign

John refers to the miracles of Jesus as "signs" because they reveal who Jesus is and why He has come into our world. John 5:1-15 describes the healing of a paralytic. We are paralyzed by sin, but Jesus comes to us individually to bring deliverance. Christ knows our need, has compassion and mercy on us, and uses his mighty power and authority to bring us forgiveness and redemption.

The Second Sign

Faith in Jesus means taking Jesus at His word. In John 4:46-54, the father of a sick boy believes the word of Christ that his son has been healed and acts on this belief by returning to his home. Jesus is both the object and the giver of our faith. His word is powerful, true, and always accomplishes its purpose.

The First Sign

The miracles performed by Jesus provide a glimpse of His glory and reveal His identity as the sovereign Savior. When Jesus turns water into wine at the wedding in Cana (John 2:1-11), He shows His compassion and creative power. Jesus demonstrates His ability to transform lives and provide true joy. This joy is available today for all who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ.

Daily Praise

Psalm 145 is filled with heartfelt adoration and worship. This psalm expresses David’s resolve to praise God every day. God is worthy of our daily adoration because of His inexhaustible greatness, mercy, sovereignty, and faithfulness.

The Lamb of God

Names in the Bible have meaning and significance. John names Jesus as "the Lamb of God who takes way the sin of the world" (John 1:29). The Lamb is sent by God the Father as a sacrificial substitute to bear the penalty of the sins of all people of the world. Those who reject belief in Jesus will someday seek to escape the wrath of the Lamb (Revelation 6:15). All who believe in Christ will someday sing "Worthy is the Lamb" with the redeemed in heaven.
