I AM

I Am The Resurrection And The Life

Sermon Series - I Am

October 21, 2018

Bible Text: John 11:17-44 |

Series:

In John 11 we encounter Jesus's statement "I am the resurrection and life". In some of the other "I AM" statements we have considered in this short sermon series Jesus uses clever contextual metaphors like light and bread to powerfully convey the meaning of what he is saying. This time, however, it is the very stuff of human suffering and death itself that provides the backdrop for his radical claim. In this passage we catch a glimpse of people responding to suffering in their lives, but even more importantly, we see a clear picture of God's own response to suffering and death that offers us a real hope for life in a broken world.

I Am The Light Of The World

Sermon Series - I Am

October 14, 2018

Bible Text: John 8:12-20 |

Series:

In this passage Jesus makes the claim that he is the light of the world and that only by following him can we know the light of life, or conversely, that by not following him we are lost in darkness. Jesus's claim about himself has very real and unavoidable implications for those who hear it. "Who does Jesus think he is to put us in such a position?" we might instinctively ask in defence. Well, that's precisely the point of this sermons series - who does Jesus think he is? And if his claims are true, what are the implications for us who hear them. In this passage we consider Christ's claim and his call, and discover how this is in fact good news for all who will hear and believe.

Many people sense a deep hunger within themselves, a hunger for healing, wholeness and contentment. It's often hard to articulate what exactly this hunger is. In John 6 Jesus speaks to this issue by declaring himself to be the Bread of Life. In this sermon we explore his statement within the context of our own desires to feel completely satisfied and content with our lot in life. Listen in and here how faith in Christ might "feed" you in ways you never imagined.

I Am The Way And The Truth And The Life

Sermon Series - I Am

September 30, 2018

Bible Text: John 13:33 - 14:7 |

Series:

We begin a new series looking at the true identity of Jesus by considering his "I am" statements. We start by looking at the most famous "I am" statement: "I am the way, the truth, and the life." What does Jesus mean when he says that? For many people this saying pertains only to personal salvation, but it seems, from the context, that Jesus doesn't just want to save his hearers, he wants to completely transform the way they view the world and the way they live their lives. Listen in as we explore this famous saying together.
