Sermon Illustrations

“Just before the Passover feast” (v1) is an interesting phrase that John placed strategically in this passage. Before we can have any true “Passover” experience there must be the transplanting of the human heart – not the fist-sized organ in our bodies pumping blood through our veins but the deeper side of us that pumps purpose, values and beliefs; it is that part of us that knows it needs to face the real me to becoming a better me against the knowledge that my purpose is to glorify God in the whole of my living.
