Genesis 12 marks a turning point in the course of history. With the God’s call of Abram out of the city of Ur, things would be changed forever and a door of hope would be opened for the people of the world. Abram’s story provides a helpful paradigm for anyone who wants to understand God’s heart for missions. In our text this morning we will see that God’s mission involves understanding his calling, believing his promises, and spreading his fame to the ends of the earth. According to Gal. 3:7-9, Christians are children of Abraham by faith. What that means is, in Christ, we inherit Abraham’s blessing as well as his mission. That is, God wants us to go and be a blessing by spreading the fame of Jesus to the neighborhoods and nations of the world. The story of missions is the story of the spread of God’s blessing. May he use each of us in the task.

On the last day of the Feast of Tabernacles, Jesus stood up and said, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink.” A tradition grew up in the few centuries before Jesus that on the seven days of this feast, a golden container filled with water from the pool of Siloam was carried in procession by the high priest back to the temple. As the procession came to the Water Gate on the south side of the inner temple court, three trumpet blasts were made to mark the joy of the occasion and the people recited Isa. 12:3, “With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.” Jesus stands before us today, declaring His true identity. Some of us will see and believe. Some of us will rejoice in our salvation. Some of us will be confused. But through declaring who Jesus is, God will be glorified in our worship today.

We continue our study through the book of John. The account of the life of Jesus begins to change its tone. The temple authorities in Jerusalem desired the assassination of Jesus. Jesus was unlike any other rabbi or political leader anyone had ever seen, because he continuously exposes their vain pride. His actions and words revealed the sinful heart of those around him and the world hated him for it. The passage is riddled with contrasts, none more so than the contrast that Jesus presents between his time, and the time of this brothers. What does the Jesus mean when he says “their time is always here”? What about the unbelief of the brothers and the Jews? And are these two aspects tied? Join us as we see the remarkable teaching of the Gospel of John that point to how we often deceive ourselves and lose sight of eternity.

Speaker: Jon Kopp - Loneliness is not only a common human struggle, but it is also a confusing struggle. May we allow the pain we feel from the emptiness of separation to push us to fullness and solitude in God. He has offered His Son as our model and strength to face our loneliness with endurance and grace.

During the first part of Jesus’ ministry people were attracted by his teaching and flocked to him. Many attached themselves to this new Rabbi, some wholeheartedly, some very loosely. But then the time came when their allegiance would be tested. The real nature of the claims of Jesus became apparent. The true disciples were sifted from the false, the deep from the shallow. Jesus’ teaching had become such that it was becoming impossible to follow him unreflectively without commitment. And that’s when things began to unravel, at least that’s what it looked like. People began to leave Jesus… in droves. John writes, “Many of his disciples turned back and no longer walked with him.” One scholar wrote, “Chapter six ends on a note of failure.” Jesus seemingly failed. He couldn't keep the crowd, he couldn’t maintain his following, people are abandoning him, and resistance seems to be winning. But whenever it appears that resistance to Jesus is winning in the world, the people of God need a robust and clear vision of God’s sovereignty over all things, including resistance. May the Lord teach us that truth today.

John 6 beautifully illustrates a very typical pattern in the Fourth Gospel. After a significant event is narrated, discussion with either the Jews or the would-be disciples follows. Their misunderstanding opens the way for Jesus to enter a major discourse that reveals more of his true nature. The events of feeding of the five thousand and walking on the water are followed by a discussion with the "crowd." Their failure to understand Jesus offers him the opportunity (and necessity) of expounding further about his identity as the Bread of Life. This is a further development of Jesus the giver of Life that had been the theme in John 4:43-5:47. - Roger Hahn

In this section of John, we begin to see people embrace Jesus for his miracles. Who is able to walk on water but someone from God? Who is able to feed five thousand people with five loaves of bread and two fish but a Messiah? Will the onlookers understand the eternal implication of these miracles or will they seek to use Jesus to practically fulfill their earthly longings and causes? How about you—do you recognize Jesus for who He is and embrace His will and eternal plan, or do you recognize Jesus for who you want to be and what you want to accomplish? Is your life awesome because you are submitted and committed to God’s will or do you think about how awesome life would be if God would “show up” to do your will?
