* Due to technical difficulties a 20 minute segment of this sermon was not recorded (beginning at 4:54). In John 5:1-18, the evangelist records the third sign of Jesus, the healing of an invalid at the Pool of Bethesda. The physical restoration of this hopeless crippled man provides spiritual lessons for us concerning the powerful work of God’s grace. The Lord looks on the pitiful state of broken sinners, and provides the means of rescue for people like you and me. Jesus has divine power and authority to loose those who are bound, forgive those who are burdened, and heal those who are broken. May the Lord richly minister that grace to us as we receive his word today.

The Scriptures teach us to honor what is honorable and praise what is praiseworthy, and so as we celebrate the 5-year anniversary of Gospel Grace Church, we will take time to do what Hebrews 13:7 says, “Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith.” Authentic Christian leaders reflect a genuine love for and commitment to the people they have been called to lead. They serve with authentic motives and sacrifice deeply. That sort of service to the Lord and ministry to the body of Christ is worth imitating. May the Lord teach us walk in a manner worthy of the gospel mimicking those who God has placed as examples to the flock.

Speaker: Danny Brooks - John is showing a variety of responses to Jesus. Some are skeptical to believe like the Jews in 2:18–20. Others are unsure about what to believe, like Nicodemus in 3:2. Some are eager to believe like the Samaritans in 4:42. They say, this is indeed the Savior of the world. But here is a fourth kind of response: the Galileans welcomed him, having seen all that he had done in Jerusalem at the feast. For they too had gone to the feast (v. 45). This is a kind of welcome, but not a welcome of faith like the Samaritans who believe and worship Him as the Savior of the world. It is the kind of welcome spectators give a magician. They want to see another miracle show, but this is not the welcome of faith or the worship of true disciples. Jesus is not a Las Vegas-style magician who performs signs and wonders for the "ooh's and aah's" of an audience. He is the sovereign, authoritative God in flesh whose word is powerful and whose person is exclusively worthy of our service and worship. Like the court official who took Jesus at His word, we too can live in confidence that all that He speaks, He will accomplish. The child was healed the very hour Jesus spoke. There was no delay. And the official believed. May we be like this desperate father, seeking the healing of the King, believing His word as He speaks to us and over us, and may we grow in faith as we watch His power work in our lives.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Jews traveling between Judea and Galilee usually avoided Samaria, a land they considered defiled by Gentile intermarriage and religious syncretism. Rather than walking on impure soil, they descended the mountains surrounding Jerusalem to the Jordan Plain, journeyed along the eastern shore of the Jordan River, and then turned west into Galilee. Jesus, however, chose a direct route from Jerusalem to Cana, which took him through the Samaritan town of Sychar. He had a providential appointment with a woman battered by life and plagued with the consequences of sinful choices. Jesus was going to show that all people need to know and respond to the gospel.

Speaker: Will Galkin - Being ready to defend your faith is more than just a set of organize arguments. It is much deeper than that. Greg Koukl, in his book Tactics has done a wonderful job of helping the Christian come up with thoughtful questions to advance the gospel of Jesus Christ. He calls his strategy of using questions the Colombo Tactic.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - John the Baptist makes his final appearance in the Gospel and utters his most significant exhortation to his followers regarding the person of Jesus. He is the Son of God who must increase. John is going to teach us this morning why and how Jesus must increase in our lives.

Speaker: Jotham Manoranjan - It is often said, the best defense is a good offense. Over the last few weeks we has spent time looking at various objections and questions that are raised of Christians. While we can wait for someone to engage in a dialogue with us, often times Christians can take the initiative too; but where do we begin in a world where everyone seems to have their own version of spirituality. Today we are going to look at some fundamental questions that we can ask of people as we begin these conversations. These questions can allow us to understand what people believe and why they believe it. Furthermore, it can give us an opportunity to present the Christian view. The questions seek to uncover their “worldview”.

Speaker: John Moon - There are many wonderful verses in the Bible about God’s love, but few come close to describing His great love as succinctly and powerfully as John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.” Jesus has just finished explaining to the Jewish religious leader, Nicodemus, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life. Jesus Christ came into the world to save people. On the heels of Jesus’ discussion with the Nicodemus, John helps us to see what makes it possible for someone to have eternal life. May the Lord help us to see the love of God that moves toward us even when our greatest sinfulness is exposed in the Light of Christ.

Speaker: Jotham Manoranjan - One professor said “In teaching apologetics and philosophy of religion for many years, we have found that students worry more and are embarrassed by Christianity’s “un-American” exclusivist claims than about any other aspect of their religion. In an age of toleration and pluralism, the most popular argument against the Christian religion seems to be simply that it is only one of many religions. The world is a big place, ‘differing strokes for different folks,’ ‘live and let live,’ ‘don’t impose your values on others.’” Is Christianity just one among many other religions? Do all religions lead to God?
