Passage: John 11:17-44
Duration: 30 mins 48 secs
In this passage we meet a family that is stricken by sickness, gripped by grief and defeated by death. Jesus words “I AM the Resurrection and the Life” are not just empty words used to bring hollow comfort, but are words that are full of hope, power and victory as he brings Lazarus back from the dead. The words and the reality are for you as well. Do you believe this?

Brad Konemann, Youth Director for 13:3 (Voice of the Martyrs), informed us of some of the challenges faced by Christians around the world that can’t worship freely as we do and the persecution they face because of their faith in Jesus. In this bible passage Paul teaches us that persecution is because of Jesus, it advances the gospel and encourages other Christians. Paul’s highest priority is to share the gospel no matter what. What is our highest priority? Is it aligned with God’s?

Passage: John 8:12-20
Duration: 31 mins 30 secs
We struggle to do things in our life when we are in dark surroundings - we need a source of light to function properly. We are reminded that Jesus is the source of light for the world and although we live in a sinful world, God will ultimately redeem us back to Himself. Jesus has called us His redeemed people and He calls us to be a light to this world but we cannot shine unless Christ is in our lives, unless we have the Light of the World in us.

Passage: Exodus 3:1-14
Duration: 23 mins 7 secs
Introduction to a new series on the the 'I am' statements of Jesus. Everything about God comes from God and He is not determined by anything outside of Himself. When Jesus says 'I am' He takes on all of God - it is who He is. God has come to us in a personal and real way through Jesus. When we come to Jesus, we come to God. God welcomes us to Himself.

Jesus came to the woman at the well at her point of need and brought wholeness to her. Jesus is a God who bends down to us and stands up for us. God wants us to receive His grace and go out this week and live in it. Jesus doesn’t just want to get you into heaven, he wants to get heaven into you.

Passage: John 15:21-25
Duration: 27 mins 26 secs
Jesus calls us as individuals although His plan for salvation includes the whole world and He wants to impact our lives. Like Peter, we can try to live up to what we’re called to do, but often we feel like we’re failing. It’s when we stop trying to do things in our own strength that God can begin to use us. The biggest discourager iscomparison. Like Jesus told Peter, we just need to do what He calls us to do. The most important question Jesus asks is, “Do you love Me?” His simple statement to a “Yes” answer is, “Follow Me!”

Passage: John 4:1-42
Duration: 27 mins 22 secs
John’s gospel about spiritual insight and going beyond the physical. In John 4:27-42 the Samaritan woman is focused on the physical but Jesus wants to reveal something to her on a deeper level. Similarly we get caught up with the physical and miss the greater depth that Jesus has for us. We can’t see this without the Holy Spirit. We can be part of Christ’s work to bring about God’s kingdom if we open ourselves to God and others.
