The Uniqueness of Christ

The Uniqueness of Christ Text: John 1:15-18 We’re now approaching the end of John’s prologue to his gospel. Next week we will commence the narrative of the life and times of Jesus Christ from John’s perspective, but in these eighteen verses John speaks theologically rather narratively. He is making clear in this opening prologue that Jesus is God in human flesh. That He…

Rejoicing in the Preaching of Christ

Rejoicing in the Preaching of Christ Text: Philippians 1:15-18 You will know if you are a believer here today, that there are various things that we repeatedly find difficult to deal with as Christians. Things that consistently get under our skin. Now I personally believe that when God calls a man to the ministry, he gives that man thicker skin than normal. That’s not to…

Vital Truths of a Viable Saviour

Vital Truths of a Viable Saviour Text: John 1:14 The title ‘The Word’ is exclusively used by the Apostle John to refer to the Son of God. John, 1 John & Revelation. We noted that John begins deliberately connecting his thoughts with the first lines of Genesis, and He shows us that when it states ‘and God said’, John wants us to know that right there we have the…

The Force of the Gospel

The Force of the Gospel Text: Philippians 1:12-14 You can learn a lot about the strength of a believer’s faith by observing their sense of real joy and contentment in the midst of trial. Now we can be great at making up excuses for our perpetual miserable spirit, but if God’s Word is true, then every believer has a right to rejoice and see the purpose of God in all the…

When God Interjects

When God Interjects Text: John 1:12-13 The great distinction in our world is not wealth, not skin colour, nor nationality… the great division in humanity is caused by the gospel of Jesus Christ. And this ought not to surprise us in light of what John has been declaring about the Son of God. You see, the difference in wealth is degrees. All have money, it’s just the…

The Rejection of the Light

The Rejection of the Light Text: John 1:9-11 When we think of light, we usually think of it as either dark, or light, or some degree in between. For us, light is on and off, it is present or it is absent. We are so familiar with it we think of it in very simplistic terms, but it’s far from simple. Light is energy. A luminous, radiant energy, moving at a speed of 186,282…

Considerations Before Courtship

Considerations Before Courtship Text: Titus 2:1-8 Much of the happiness or sorrow of this life will be tied to our home life. The romance soon turns into reality, and if there has been deliberate folly or rebellion on the part of a believer, there will be consequences to pay. I. THE CONDITION OF THE PROSPECT 1. The Evidence of Salvation It is not wise to be overly…

The Witness of the Light

The Witness of the Light Text: John 1:6-9 Let me once again remind you that the writer of this gospel, the beloved disciple John, is making a case for the identity of Christ, more so than the historicity of Christ. It’s not just the observations of a historian, he is trying to persuade us to believe in the Son of God. So his opening lines are essentially answering the…
