42. The Raising of Lazarus

The good news of Lazarus’s situation (and ours too) is that God is rich in mercy and he sent Jesus to raise those who are dead to life. Lazarus was raised from the dead. He didn’t ask to be raised but Christ raised him out of his mercy and grace. This illustrates that Jesus is indeed the resurrection and life.

43. Getting in the Wheelbarrow

Throughout the Gospel of John we see the common thread of knowledge leading to action. According to John, belief in Christ is not a passive thing. We do not sit back and simply “believe” in him without it driving us to action. There are many who believe facts about God or maybe believe that he died on a cross, but they are not transformed by it.

45. Missing Jesus

Throughout the Old Testament we see God promising His people a deliverer and savior who will bring salvation. Not only would he bring salvation, but an intimacy with God that had not been experienced before. As we move into this next section of Scripture we will see that this expectation of a Messiah had changed from a healthy expectation to one that was of their own making.

46. Salvation: Costly to Give, Costly to Receive

Similar to a seed of wheat that dies, and is buried, and produces a harvest of new life, Jesus, through His saving death, resurrection, and exaltation, will produce a fruitful harvest of sons and daughters, who, like Him, are called to deny themselves by dying to sin in order to walk in the light of life.

49. Love God, Love Your Neighbor Part 1

Loving God is not a nebulous, ambitious, spiritual experience. It has practical outflow into our lives and the lives of others. Following Jesus and loving Jesus is full of joy and reward. We get to experience this joy through sharing the good news of Jesus with those around us. If He truly is the treasure that we prize so highly, we must share his beauty with those around us.
