The Resurrection
See Full Recap »

John 20 - The Resurrection
The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is ”not a belief that grew up within the church; it is the belief around which the church itself grew up, and the ‘given’ upon which its faith is based” (CH Dodd).  Paul said if Jesus was not raised from the dead then our faith is futile (1 Corinthians 15).  There were many eyewitnesses to the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  When Mary, the disciples, and Thomas saw the risen Jesus they were changed.  Seeing was believing.  We are not able to visually see Jesus Christ, but these early followers' seeing has allowed us the chance to see and believe and be changed by the truth of our living Savior.

The Death of God
See Full Recap »

 Every year millions of people gather to hear the story of Jesus’ crucifixion and death and to reflect upon it. But why reflect upon a man executed as a criminal in first century Jerusalem? Why did Jesus go to the Cross? In this sermon we’ll see that Jesus went to the Cross because of us, instead of us, and for us. Judas was Jesus’ friend but handed him over to death on the Cross out of greed. The Jewish Leaders were Jesus’ enemies and handed him over to the Cross out of envy. Pilate was a Roman Governor who handed Jesus over to the Cross out of people-pleasing fear. Greed, envy, and fear. As we come to see these traits in ourselves we find we are not just spectators to the story of the Cross but participants in it. Jesus went to the Cross because of us. And yet. He freely went instead of us and for us. Christ won’t be sweet to us til our sin tastes bitter. On the Cross we see the horror of our sin, but also the loving justice of God.

Abiding with Jesus
See Full Recap »

This week is a continuation of Jesus’ conversation with His disciples the night before the Crucifixion. In the previous chapter He give the imperative “Trust me” and in this chapter He gives the imperative to “remain” or “abide”. He uses the metaphor of the vine and the branches, describing His Father as the good gardener who cuts and prunes the branches in order for them (us) to bear good fruit, which brings Him glory and us joy. Jesus reminds them and us that apart from Him we can do nothing. This destroys our autonomy and self-sufficiency (which is a big reason the world hates Jesus and His followers), but is the essence of this organic relationship that He is calling us into… to trust and rely on Him, not only for our salvation, but for life. Abiding is intimate worship, but it is also mission. We keep in step and copy what the Holy Spirit is doing in and through us; namely that He proclaims the Good News, comforts and counsels in a way that meets each person where they are in order to connect them to their need for the cross, then disciples them, connecting the dots of everything that Jesus taught (and the rest of Scripture).

What has been pruned out of your life in the last three years and what new fruit has Jesus produced in your life during that time?
What is your attitude / posture / motivation in the process?
What in your life needs pruning out now -- what keeps Jesus from producing new fruit in your life today?
Are you trusting God through it?

Belonging to Jesus
See Full Recap »

It’s Thursday night and the disciples’ world is crumbling around them. Jesus has just told them that He is leaving and that all of them will, in some form or fashion, turn their backs on Him. They are crushed. He reassures them with these words… ““Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me.” He then proceeds to tell them: 

Where this is going. (Eternal dwelling and intimacy with God, a new heaven and earth)

The way to get there. (Through Jesus, the Truth and Life)

The purpose of the journey. (To reveal the Father and His glory)

And that there is someone to help navigate. (The presence and power of the Holy Spirit) 

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14: 27
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

The Love of Jesus
See Full Recap »

John 13:3-5 says that Jesus had reached a point in his life and ministry where he knew that he had been given all authority in the universe and that he was going to return to heaven, his true home. What would you do if you were given all power and authority? Jesus’ next move is incredible: having total power, he displays total humility, getting down on his hands and knees to wash the dirt off his disciples feet. This was a job reserved only for the lowest slaves. It’s as if Jesus became CEO and was given the corner office, but the first thing he does is to go do the work even the temps don’t want to do. Jesus cleanses his disciples feet, but shows how this humble action is an example of the love they are to have for one another and a symbolic action describing their spirit cleansing. As Jesus prepares his disciples for his death and departure, he wants them to know without a doubt the measure of his love for them. The love of Jesus empowers the cleansing of his disciples, so that the cleansing of his disciples empowers their love in the world. In this message, we’ll explore why we need this love of Jesus, how we get it, and what it looks like in our lives today.

Other Scriptures Referenced: John 13:21-38; 18:1-27; Mark 14:50; Philippians 2:4-8.

The Good Shepherd

We explore Jesus as the Good Shepherd (John 10) through the lenses of the Psalm 23 and Ezekiel 34 and what that means for us today. The key takeaway is that you can know you are loved by a capable and perfect Shepherd.

John 9
See Full Recap »

Jesus gives sight to a man who had been blind from birth.  The Light of the World not only physically opens the eyes of the blind man, but spiritually opens his eyes as well.  The Pharisees struggle to see Jesus for who He really is because they don’t recognize their need.  Consequently,  we are reminded of the importance of acknowledging our need for Jesus and His ability to open our eyes to His truth.

IF YOU ONLY KNEW…

John 4 - The Woman at the Well

In the story of the woman at the well, Jesus breaks through every barrier (racial, gender, social, & religious) in order to save this woman who was steeped in shame and stuck in cycles of broken relationships. 

The conversation started with Jesus asking her for a drink.Her reply was, “If you knew who I was, you wouldn’t be talking to me right now.” And Jesus tells her, “If you knew who’s asking you for a drink, you would have asked for the gift of living water.” 

In her story we see the need for grace, the process of grace, and the response to grace. She comes to the realization that Jesus knows her and all her baggage, yet loves her and invites her to a new life… a new life that she can’t shut up about which is good news for her village.  

Am I aware of my need for the living water of God’s grace today?
In my own process of faith and trust, what is Jesus saying and doing in my life presently?
What is my response to His grace?
What do I need to let go of in order to receive this living water, this new life?

The Work of God
See Full Recap »

“What must we do to being doing the works of God?” the crowds asked Jesus (John 6:28). Jesus replied, “This is the work of God: that you believe in the One whom he sent” (6:29). Jesus essentially says: “You don’t do the work of God, but you are to trust in the God who does the work we most need.” We are to live and work for and with God in the entirety of our lives. And yet the first and greatest — and hardest — work for us to fully and completely trust him that his work is enough. Here we’ll look at this through the lens of Jesus’ interesting statement: “I am the Bread of Life.” Bread must be digested, so Jesus is telling us that the kind of life he has to offer must be digested in us to produce a new quality of life. What is this quality of life that Jesus gives? He calls it eternal life, and it’s something very different than just eternal existence. It’s the life of God brought into you.

Other Scriptures Referenced: John 1:4; 3:15-16; 4:14, 36; 5:24, 26, 29, 39, 40; 6:1-15, 40, 51, 53-54, 63, 68; Eph. 5:18.

Everything is New

John 3:1-21

Nicodemus was a Jewish leader and well respected teacher who, out of curiosity, came to see Jesus one evening. Because of his accomplishments and standing in the community, he carried certain  assumptions about God, about what it means to enter God’s Kingdom, and about his own religious superiority. He was not prepared for Jesus’ words. “You must be born again.” 

Nicodemus had no idea that he, of all people, actually needed the transformative grace of God. In the words of Jess Gabbard, “For those of us who are fixers and assisters and achievers and "get-her-done"ers, grace may at times feel counter intuitive... We don’t want to need God’s help.” Like Nicodemus, our own assumptions and attitudes about our accomplishments, or ‘good person’ status often blind us to our need for saving grace.  

Thankfully, God’s attitude toward us (and all humanity) is one of deep love. God is love. His love is not tied to our ability to get it right, not tied to our accomplishments or attitudes or assumption. His love is pure, unconditional, and unwavering. He gave His Son to die in our place so that we can have life. Our response?

Believe.

Refugee Sunday

Refugee Sunday

This week focuses on the Syrian Crisis.

The backdrop for the conversation is John 2, the cleansing of the Temple.

Jesus is passionate about all people, all nations, coming to the temple, having a chance to encounter God and He is zealous about demolishing any barrier, any system, that prohibits or inhibits people from experiencing the redemption and restoration of God’s presence.  

Jesus is, in fact, Himself the new temple, but if you keep following the thread of temple through Scripture you see that the people of God have now become the temple of God. We are are where God makes HIs dwelling (Revelation 21:3-5) and through whom God reveals Himself to a world desperate for true worship.

We are the place where God desires to make himself known so that the world would come to know what we know when they see our passion for Jesus. 

How can we embody and demonstrate His passion and compassion and righteous anger in our current time and space?

Nearly 13 million Syrians have been forced from their homes by a brutal civil war, over half of which are children. The fabric of shalom (the flourishing and reconciliation of people in every dimension of their lives) has been stretched and frayed an torn.

“The only way to reweave and strengthen the fabric is by weaving yourself into it. Reweaving shalom means to sacrificially thread, lace and press your time, goods, power, and resources into the lives and needs of others.” - Tim Keller

Through World Vision we have a way to weave ourselves into it. $29/mo will help provide critically needed essentials like food, clean water, education, health assistance, shelter, emergency supplies, and safe places for children to play, learn, and begin to heal from their traumatic experiences. Contact Campus House if you want to be a part (or go to the World Vision website).

New Wine & Wedding Party Joy
See Full Recap »

What does a huge quantity of wine, a wedding party, and a strange conversation between Jesus and his mother have to do with abundant joy and the end to all suffering? This is a familiar story in which Jesus turns water into wine. But many of us have missed the incredible significance of this passage: Jesus says he is the source of true joy, the solution to all suffering and that, through him, all that is sad will come untrue. The final verse of our passage shows us the importance of this passage and how it sets up Jesus’ entire life and ministry. We’ll see that this isn't’ merely a miracle, but (1) a sign (it points beyond that event itself); (2) Jesus’ very first sign (so it has special significance); (3) a sign that reveals his glory (his true identity); and (4) a sign that caused the disciples to believe in him (it radically altered the course of their lives). Through this passage Jesus reveals that he will drink the cup of sorrow to give us the cup of joy. He can overwhelm our guilt, shame, sufferings and death with his wedding party joy.

 

Other Scriptures Referenced: John 20:30-31; Genesis 1:1-31; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Proverbs 20:1; Isaiah 5:11, 22; 25:6-8; John 7:308:2012:23, 27; 13:1; 17:1;  Amos 9:13-15; Revelation 19, 21.

What do you want?
See Full Recap »

A new year launches a new series through the Gospel of John, asking the question: “What does this passage tell about Jesus and what does it mean for my life?” John starts his account of the life of Jesus, not in the manger, but in the Garden…

“In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God.”  “Everything was created through Him.” The Word became flesh and dwelt among us…”

Then John gives us the first words of Jesus.
“What do you want?”

It’s a probing question. “What are you really looking for? Your terms or mine? What are your expectations?”

He is asking us the same question. The disciples’ response was awesome. “Where are you staying?” Where are you abiding? We want to abide with you. To which Jesus replied, “Come and see.”
It is a call to follow Jesus; to believe, to stay in proximity, to imitate Him. Discipleship begins with Jesus asking, “What do you want?” Discipleship deepens with us asking Jesus, “What do You want? John 1; John 15:7; 1 John 1:3-4; Colossians 1:15-23

“Anyone who wants to be a follower of Christ systematically and aggressively rearranges their life to that end.” - Dallas Willard
