John: Right Judgement

John 7:1-24 We’ve all likely heard the phrase “don’t judge a book by it’s cover,” and we know exactly what it means. While that phrase itself isn’t “ancient” (since books and covers didn’t even exist in their current form through most of human history”), the concept behind it is. Even Jesus Himself said something along those lines two thousand […]

John: Feast or Starve?

John 6:60-71 After witnessing Jesus’ miracle of feeding the 5000, many of Jesus’ supposed followers walked away, offended at the idea of him being “The Bread of Life.” They were impressed by his power, but they couldn’t swallow that claim.

John: Walking on Water

John 6:16-21 Have you ever had the experience of being startled by someone, feeling momentarily scared and frightened, only to realize very quickly that it’s actually your spouse or your friend? What a relief it is in that moment when your fears quickly give way to calmness, and you can say, “I’m so glad that was you!” […]

John: Power Hungry

John 6:1-15 We have four records of Jesus’s life in the Bible, yet interestingly, only ONE of Jesus’ miracles is mentioned in all four records: the feeding of the five thousand. John, whose gospel we’ve been working through in recent months, seems to have intentionally included stories in his record of Christ’s life that were not […]

Bob, who is the Director of Sovereign Grace Music and one of the pastors of Sovereign Grace Church of Louisville, preached in our worship services from Colossians 3:16-17 on the topic of “Why We Sing.” In addition to being a gifted […]
