The Superiority of Christ’s Life

The Superiority of Christ’s Life Text: John 3:31-36 As we said last week, the key verse in this section from v22-36 is v30. This passage is an important one. Since every Christian is saved to serve in some way, John exemplifies the spirit in which that should be done. As Christ’s public recognition increases, John’s is decreasing, which was vital if men were to…

A Young Man to Emulate

A Young Man to Emulate Text: Philippians 2:19-24 After a number of verses that give us the principles for living, Paul now gives us a model to follow. And models are helpful. Seeing something is much more helpful than just reading about it. It’s why YouTube is now the first destination for most people wanting to know how to do something. It’s one thing to read how to…

The Divine Perspective of Salvation

The Divine Perspective of Salvation Text: John 3:16-21 Jesus is giving an explanation to Nicodemus about true salvation. We need to listen to these words with Jewish ears.

Adding to the profound content of the subject matter, is the context in which it was given; that it was delivered to one of the most religious men on the face of the earth. An…

The Life That’s a Witness To The World

The Life That’s a Witness To The World Text: Philippians 2:14-16 Have you ever wanted to win a soul to Christ? How important is it to you that souls are won for the Saviour? Are you content to relax upon the sovereignty of God without any emotion toward perishing souls? I believe you value the lost. But I wonder how much. You may value the lost enough to pray for them,…

Christ’s Response to Unbelief

Christ’s Response to Unbelief Text: John 3:11-13 Once again I wish to emphasize to you that the analogy used by the Lord in John 3 to depict what is necessary in order to enter the kingdom of God, is deliberately one which shows our lack of contribution. Just as you had zero influence in the matters of your first birth, so it is with the new birth. Spiritual life is…
