In John 14:15-31, we step right back into the farewell discourse of Jesus Christ. The Passover meal is finished, but instead of quiet conversation and close fellowship, the scene is marked by turmoil, troubled hearts, and a fearful future. Betrayal and denial is close at hand. The master is leaving, to go somewhere, but the disciples cannot follow. Everything familiar and stable is falling apart. It is in this context of troubled hearts and fearful futures that Jesus gives the gift of grace, the gift of the Helper, and the gift of love

Speaker: Jon Kopp - In the the heat of circumstances, we can become disoriented. Our goal today is to orient ourselves both to where we are at and to where we are headed, because we don’t measure biblical change by end destinations alone. The Living God meets us as we acknowledge where we are (LOCATION) and turn our hearts (DIRECTION) towards Him.

Today, if your heart is troubled and you’re feeling confused, concerned, and overwhelmed, you’re in good company. In John 14, Jesus’ disciples felt the very same way. At the ripe young age of thirty-three, their Lord was leaving them. The disciples were not expecting this. They were counting on Jesus being around for a very long time. They were anticipating Jesus to set them free from Roman oppression, and they were preparing to rule and reign with Him. Now it finally begins to dawn on them that Jesus is going to die, and their hearts are heavy and deeply troubled. Fortunately, Jesus addresses His disciples’ heart trouble with some heart-to-heart words. He says to them and to us: “Believing leads to seeing.” (Keith Krell)

Speaker: Jon Kopp - Martin Luther summarized our growth in the Christian life this way, "This life, therefore, is not righteousness but growth in righteousness, not health but healing, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not yet what we shall be, but we are growing toward it; the process is not yet finished but it is going on; this is not the end but it is the road. All does not yet gleam in glory but all is being purified.” In this first of four lessons, we look at both the final destination God's process of change and the circumstances we face along the way.

The atmosphere in the large upper room was tense, unhappy, and uncertain. The evening had gone badly from the start. The disciples had gathered with Jesus, looked around for the traditional servant to wash their feet, but seeing none they stretched out on their pallets around the low table. Without saying a word, they waited for someone else to serve, someone else to love. That’s when Jesus stood up and washed their feet. How humiliating; teachers shouldn’t do things like that. But Jesus loved them, and would continue doing so right up until the end. But the end was closer than any of the disciples realized, so Jesus lovingly tried to prepare them for what was about to take place. Betrayal, denial and death on a cross were right around the corner. And Jesus wanted his disciples to understand this cross and the impact it would have on their lives. May we learn these lessons of the cross as we examine John 13:18-38 this morning.

To the unbelieving world, riddled with skepticism, anti-supernaturalism, rationalism, mysticism, and the hopeless despair each produces, the Christian offers the only message of hope. It is found in the resurrection. There is a God, who is both the creator of the universe and its sovereign ruler. Not only does he exist, but he is knowable and has revealed himself in his inspired and incarnate Word. Jesus came and lived a perfect life, he died a substitutionary death, and was raised again on the third day. This Easter, may we turn from the emptiness of idolatry and embrace new life found in the living and loving Savior, Jesus.

Speaker: Jon Kopp - We live in a world frantically in search of identity. People look for it in strength and achievement, charisma and appearance and a thousand other places, but in Jesus’ kingdom, identity isn’t hard to find. You just have to look at the lowest point--all the way down at humility. In Jesus' kingdom, our identity must be in humility. But, for most of us, finding that humility isn't as easy as it may seem, is it? One pastor said it this way, “Humility is so shy. The minute you start talking about it, it leaves.” In other words, we won't find humility by looking for it in ourselves or by comparing ourselves to others. Where do we find humility? By looking at Jesus, because, that's the only way true humility is found. It only comes to us as a byproduct of beholding, marveling at and believing in Jesus.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - From the beginning of the signs that Christ performed, he was displaying his glory (John 2:11). He was revealing the Father through his words and works yet he received no general credence. This reluctance to come to the light was shown by the very people who had been prepared over the centuries for the coming of the light. So, what happened? Did Jesus fail in his mission to the world? In the closing of John 12, the apostle takes time to answer that question. In spite of way Jesus was rejected, John highlights his radiance and presents one final public call for people to be redeemed. 79npx9uq
