Jesus’ Signs in the Gospel of John: Part 2

Last week we learned that Jesus’ miracles were not just random acts of kindness. Jesus’ miracles were signs meant to authenticate His claim to be the Christ, the Son of God. The signs were verifiable proof that Jesus was sent from God (John 3:2). Last week we looked at 4 of Jesus’ signs and today… Continue reading Jesus’ Signs in the Gospel of John: Part 2

Advent: God is Love (1 John 4:8)

In April of 1975, the #1 song in America was Minnie Riperton’s “Loving You”. It began with this line: “Loving you is easy because you’re beautiful.” Not because you are nice, not because you are kind, but because you are beautiful. This is actually a consistent theme in modern music. Turn on “Top 40” radio… Continue reading Advent: God is Love (1 John 4:8)
