Sermons on John
Sermon text: John 13:12-17 All four gospels recount Jesus’ time with the disciples the night before His crucifixion. But only John records Jesus washing the disciples’ feet while they were in the upper room. It was an unheard of act for a Jewish man, especially one with Jesus’ credentials. Yet He humbled Himself to wash the feet of His followers. In so doing, Jesus taught a valuable lesson about servanthood.
Sermon text: John 1:43-51 Jesus said to Philip, “Follow me.” When Philip told Nathanael about Jesus, Nathanael was less than impressed. Philip couldn’t tell him much, so he challenged Nathanael, “Come and see.” To his credit, Nathanael came and saw. And when he did, Jesus told Nathanael, “I saw you.” Simple phrases, but ones which changed these men’s lives.
We experience good times and bad in life. It’s easy to get caught up in the day to day. But followers of Christ need to remember that this is not our home. Our mission while here and the promise of life in the hereafter should change our daily focus.
