TEN GIFTS OF JESUS IN THE GOSPEL OF ST JOHN

In this sermon we outline 10 of the wonderful gifts Jesus gave to us, the Church. Many times we forget all the precious promises He gave us. May we be truly thankful for all He has done for us.

I.GRACE AND TRUTH

John 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

In the Bible there are three distinctive meanings of grace; it means the mercy and active love of God; it means the winsome attractiveness of God; it means the strength of God to overcome. Charles L. Allen

If God wants you to do something, he’ll make it possible for you to do it, but the grace he provides comes only with the task and cannot be stockpiled beforehand. We are dependent on him from hour to hour, and the greater our awareness of this fact, the less likely we are to faint or fail in a crisis.

Louis Cassels

Cheap grace is the grace we bestow on ourselves. Cheap grace is the preaching of forgiveness without requiring repentance, baptism without church discipline, communion without confession. Cheap grace is grace without discipleship, grace without the cross, grace without Jesus Christ, living and incarnate. Costly grace ... is the kingly rule of Christ, for whose sake a man will pluck out the eye which causes him to stumble, it is the call of Jesus Christ at which the disciple leaves his nets and follows him.

* Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Thou art the way, the truth and the life.

Without the way, there is no going.

Without the truth, there is no knowing.

Without the life, there is no living.

The truth is mightier than eloquence, the Spirit greater than genius, faith more than education.- Martin Luther

II. LIVING WATER

John 4:10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.

A. Jesus is the true Living source of living water. When we receive Him and His Word we receive from the eternal spring of LIFE.

III. HOLY SPIRIT.

John 7:37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. . John 7:38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.John 7:39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

Every time we say, "I believe in the Holy Spirit," we mean that we believe that there is a living God able and willing to enter human personality and change it. - J. B. Phillips

Great messages can be sent along slender wires. The peace-giving witness of the Holy Spirit can reach the heart by means of a threadlike faith, which seems almost unable to sustain its own weight. Think more of Him to whom you look than of the look itself. You must look away even from your own looking and see nothing but Jesus and the grace of God revealed in Him.

* C. H. Spurgeon
