John 9:8-18. Jesus heals a blind man, who is brought before the Pharisees, who refuse to believe in Jesus. The formerly blind man is questioned by these, and we see his example of how to witness to the willfully unbelieving. We see the division that arises over Jesus identity.
John 9:1-7. In this passage, Jesus takes notice of the blind man and healed the man. More than just physical healing, this man’s is eternally healed. Jesus teaches on the importance of living in a state of the urgency in doing the works of our Father.
John 8:37-43 Jesus makes it clear that children imitate their father. He called these Jews who claimed to worshipped the one true God children of Satan. In light of this teaching, we should examine our own claim to be children of God. Does the fruit of our life affirm that claim to be true?
Philippians 2:6-11. Many people make the mistake of leaving Jesus in the manger. they like the cute emotional story of His birth, but don’t take it any further. That is a huge mistake. That is only the beginning of the journey, but misses the whole story.
John 8:21-30. Jesus speaking to Jewish religious leaders shows that the only way to life is through belief in Him. He presents two opposing kingdom, “this world” and “from above”. What do they look like? How do you know which you’re in? How can you go from one to the other?
Psalm 51:1-19. Sin is devastating in our lives. It is harmful to us, it is harmful to our relationships with God and others, it can be harmful to our health. But God has not left us without a solution to our sin. The Bible calls this solution repentance. What is it? How does it work?
John 8:12-21. How can we know God? Is it through abundant human intelligence? Is it through application of human wisdom? Jesus shows us in this passage that the only way we will ever know God is through divine revelation. God must show us who he is, and we must receive his revelation of Himself.
