A message on John 3:16
Redemption, Jesus Christ, The Greatest
Proper 18 (a) By nature we focus on ourselves, trying to be the greatest, to be Number One. But that leads to separation and loneliness. Christ has redeemed us, that we may be united with the Father and with each other. Therefore we live in love.
Humility, Unity, Servanthood, Parable Lost Sheep, The Greatest
The disciples, on more than one occasion, argued over who should hold the highest position in the kingdom.
Their desire was for recognition and honor in an earthly kingdom.
Jesus had to refocus their thinking and I believe the same refocusing is needed by many today.
Humility And Pride, The Greatest
APART FROM JESUS, WHO WAS THE GREATEST MAN WHO EVER LIVED? HE’S THE MAN THAT JESUS SAID IS THE GREATEST MAN BORN OF A WOMAN. THAT WAS THE LORD’S ASSESSMENT OF HIS COUSIN, JOHN THE BAPTIST.
John The Baptist, The Greatest
The world emphasizes the importance of putting yourself first, and being the greatest. Jesus' disciples argued about who among them was the greatest, the most loved, the most important.
Obstacles, The Greatest, Most Important
