IN JOHN 13, JESUS PREDICTS: HIS
JUDAS’S PETER’S

John 14: 1“Don’t let your hearts be troubled.

3 REASONS OUR HEARTS SHOULDN’T BE TROUBLED:

  1. BECAUSE OF

    1Trust in God, and trust also in me.

  2. BECAUSE OF

    2 There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I

    have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?

  3. BECAUSE OF

    3 When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am.

4 And you know the way to where I am going.” 5 “No, we don’t know, Lord,” Thomas said. “We have no idea where you are going, so how can we know the way?”

6 Jesus told him, “I am the , the , and the . No one can come to the Father .
2 Peter 3:9 – Romans 10:13 – John 3:16

7 If you had really known me, you would know who my Father is. From now on, you do know him and have seen him!” 8 Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied.” 9 Jesus replied, “Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and yet you still don’t know who I am? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father! So why are you asking me to show him to you? 10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words I speak are not my own, but my Father who lives in me does his work through me. 11 Just believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me. Or at least believe because of the work you have seen me do. 12 “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father.

16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you.

ANOTHER – GREEK
HETEROS = ANOTHER OF A KIND

ALLOS = ANOTHER OF THE KIND

17 He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you. 25 I am telling you these things now while I am still with you. 26 But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative—that is, the Holy Spirit—he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you. 27 “I am leaving you with a gift— peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.

 

Matthew 9:36 – When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 

SHEEP NEED .

1“I tell you the truth, anyone who sneaks over the wall of a sheepfold, rather than going through the gate, must surely be a thief and a robber! 2 But the one who enters through the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. 3 The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep recognize his voice and come to him. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4 After he has gathered his own flock, he walks ahead of them, and they follow him because they know his voice. 5 They won’t follow a stranger; they will run from him because they don’t know his voice.”

6 Those who heard Jesus use this illustration didn’t understand what he meant, 7 so he explained it to them: “I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep. 8 All who came before me were thieves and robbers. But the true sheep did not listen to them. 9 Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved. They will come and go freely and will find good pastures. 

THE IS BETTER THAN THE .

10 The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.

JESUS IS THE

11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd sacrifices his life for the sheep. 12 A hired hand will run when he sees a wolf coming. He will abandon the sheep because they don’t belong to him and he isn’t their shepherd. And so the wolf attacks them and scatters the flock. 13 The hired hand runs away because he’s working only for the money and doesn’t really care about the sheep.

14 “I am the good shepherd; I know my own sheep, and they know me, 15 just as my Father knows me and I know the Father. So I sacrifice my life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep, too, that are not in this sheepfold. I must bring them also. They will listen to my voice, and there will be one flock with one shepherd.

THE OF THE SHEPHERD THE SHEEP

27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.

John 9: 1 As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man who had been blind from birth. 2 “Rabbi,” his disciples asked him, “why was this man born blind? Was it because of his own sins or his parents’ sins?” 3 “It was not because of his sins or his parents’ sins,” Jesus answered. “This happened so the power of God could be seen in him.

GOD TOOK INTO ACCOUNT THE BLESSING OF WHEN CHOOSING TO TRUST THIS MAN WITH THIS OF .

WHO IS GOD TRYING TO BLESS THROUGH YOUR ?

3 WAYS SUFFERING CAN BE A BLESSING:

IT CAN US.
IT CAN US.
IT CAN US.

4 We must quickly carry out the tasks assigned us by the one who sent us. The night is coming, and then no one can work. 5 But while I am here in the world, I am the light of the world.”
6 Then he spit on the ground, made mud with the saliva, and spread the mud over the blind man’s eyes. 7 He told him, “Go wash yourself in the pool of Siloam” (Siloam means “sent”).  So, the man went and washed and came back seeing!

ARE YOU WILLING TO IF IT FORCES YOU TO ?

v. 8-34
35 When Jesus heard what had happened, he found the man and asked, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?” 36 The man answered, “Who is he, sir? I want to believe in him.” 37 “You have seen him,” Jesus said, “and he is speaking to you!” 38 “Yes, Lord, I believe!” the man said. And he worshiped Jesus.

v. 11 – “The man they call Jesus.”
v. 17 – “I think He must be a prophet.”
v. 33 – “If this man were not from God, he couldn’t have done it.”

v. 38 – “Yes, Lord, I believe.”

39 Then Jesus told him, “I entered this world to render judgment—to give sight to the blind and to show those who think they see that they are blind.” 40 Some Pharisees who were standing nearby heard him and asked, “Are you saying we’re blind?” 41 “If you were blind, you wouldn’t be guilty,” Jesus replied. “But you remain guilty because you claim you can see.

DON’T FORGET TO SAVE AND DOWNLOAD THIS NOTE AFTER THE SERMON!!

John 8:1-11  1 Jesus returned to the Mount of Olives, 2 but early the next morning he was back again at the Temple. A crowd soon gathered, and he sat down and taught them.  3 As he was speaking, the teachers of religious law and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in the act of adultery. They put her in front of the crowd.  4 “Teacher,” they said to Jesus, “this woman was caught in the act of adultery.  5 The law of Moses says to stone her. What do you say?”  6 They were trying to trap him into saying something they could use against him, but Jesus stooped down and wrote in the dust with his finger. 7 They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!”  8 Then he stooped down again and wrote in the dust.  9 When the accusers heard this, they slipped away one by one, beginning with the oldest, until only Jesus was left in the middle of the crowd with the woman.  10 Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?”   11 “No, Lord,” she said. And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.”

PEOPLE WILL EXPERIENCE THE GRACE OF JESUS THROUGHME IF: 

#1 – I SEE BEYOND THEIR
1 Samuel 16:7 – “The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them.  People judge by the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
John 8: 15 – “You judge me by human standards, but I do not judge anyone.”

#2 – I GET MY
John 8:6 – They were trying to trap him into saying something they could use against him, but Jesus stooped down and wrote in the dust with his finger.
Galatians 6:2 – Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.

#3 – I SPEAK TO THEIR
John 8:10-11 – 10 Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?”   11 “No, Lord,” she said. And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.”

John 6:1 – After this, Jesus crossed over to the far side of the Sea of Galilee, also known as the Sea of Tiberias.

WHAT GOD WANTS TO DO YOU STARTS WITH WHAT HE’S DOING .

John 6: 2 A huge crowd kept following him wherever he went, because they saw his miraculous signs as he healed the sick. 3 Then Jesus climbed a hill and sat down with his disciples around him. 4 (It was nearly time for the Jewish Passover celebration.) 5 Jesus soon saw a huge crowd of people coming to look for him. Turning to Philip, he asked, “Where can we buy bread to feed all these people?” 6 He was testing Philip, for he already knew what he was going to do.

BEFORE YOU EVER HAD A , GOD ALREADY HAD A !

John 6: 7 Philip replied, “Even if we worked for months, we wouldn’t have enough money to feed them!” 8 Then Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, spoke up. 9 “There’s a young boy here with five barley loaves and two fish. But what good is that with this huge crowd?”

GOD’S IS ACCOMPLISHED THROUGH .

John 6: 10 “Tell everyone to sit down,” Jesus said. So they all sat down on the grassy slopes. (The men alone numbered about 5,000.) 11 Then Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks to God, and distributed them to the people. Afterward he did the same with the fish. And they all ate as much as they wanted.

THE BLESSING IS IN THE BREAKING

John 6: 12 After everyone was full, Jesus told his disciples, “Now gather the leftovers, so that nothing is wasted.” 13 So they picked up the pieces and filled twelve baskets with scraps left by the people who had eaten from the five barley loaves.

John 21:25 – Jesus also did many other things. If they were all written down, I suppose the whole world could not contain the books that would be written.

When you think about suffering, what comes to mind? Do you envision bedraggled children with distended stomachs, a hospital patient hooked up to life-sustaining medical equipment, or a courageous veteran dealing with the aftermath of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.  Adversity seems to be a common denominator to human existence, but what does the Bible have to say about suffering?

Jesus spoke to His disciples about suffering. One of the most well-known verses reads, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me” (Matthew 16:24 ESV). The Greek word for cross in this verse is staurós. It refers to the crossbeam which the lowest criminals carried as they trudged toward their execution. The cross symbolized degradation and indescribable pain as well as sacrifice.

While the invitation to eternal life is free, it comes at a price–certain suffering.
