John 3:9-15 — Snake in the Wilderness

Jesus makes an enigmatic statement when he says that as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so must the Son of Man be lifted up. What could he mean? “How can this be?” Nicodemus asked.

John 3:9-15 — Snake in the Wilderness

John 3:1-8 — Born Again

Being born again is an opportunity for a personal, life-changing encounter with God that brings joy, purpose, and a deeper connection to him. It is a radical experience that enables us to enter God's kingdom. Now there was a Pharisee, a man named Nicodemus who was a member of the Jewish ruling council. He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the signs you are doing if God were not with him.”

John 3:1-8 — Born Again

John 2:23-25 — Signs and Wonders

In today's passage, Jesus confronts our tendency to rely solely on the miraculous and invites us to a faith that transcends the temporary and touches the depths of our souls. Now while he was in Jerusalem at the Passover Festival, many people saw the signs he was performing and believed in his name. But Jesus would not entrust himself to them, for he knew all people. He did not need any testimony about mankind, for he knew what was in each person.

John 2:23-25 — Signs and Wonders

John 2:18-22 — The New Temple

When Jesus says, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up," what did he mean? The Jews then responded to him, “What sign can you show us to prove your authority to do all this?”

John 2:18-22 — The New Temple

John 2:13-17 — When Jesus Gets Mad

Jesus cleansing the temple challenges us to align our worship practices with God's heart and to be catalysts for transformation both within the church and in the world around us. When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. In the temple courts he found people selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. To those who sold doves he said, “Get these out of here! Stop turning my Father’s house into a market!” His disciples remembered that it is written: “Zeal for your house will consume me.”

John 2:13-17 — When Jesus Gets Mad

John 2:6-12 — New Wine

The miracle at Cana serves as a powerful testimony to Jesus' ability to satisfy our deepest needs while giving us an abundance of his goodness and grace. Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.

John 2:6-12 — New Wine

John 2:1-5 — My Hour Has Not Come

The miracle at Cana encourages us to trust in God's timing, seek his will, and extend grace and compassion to others as we navigate our own lives and relationships. On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.”

John 2:1-5 — My Hour Has Not Come

John 1:49-51 — Stairway to Heaven

Jesus is the bridge between heaven and earth. We have access to the heavenly realm, divine revelation, and an intimate relationship with the Father through faith in him. Then Nathanael declared, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the king of Israel.”

John 1:49-51 — Stairway to Heaven

John 1:47-48 — Jesus Knows You!

Jesus knows us, warts and all, but when he looks at us, he doesn't see us just as we are; he sees us as the people he created us to be. If we trust him, he will help us become these people. When Jesus saw Nathanael approaching, he said of him, “Here truly is an Israelite in whom there is no deceit.”

John 1:47-48 — Jesus Knows You!

John 1:43-46 — Come and See

Thousands of people have found Jesus because somebody told them to come and see. You can do the same and change their lives forever. The next day Jesus decided to leave for Galilee. Finding Philip, he said to him, “Follow me.”

John 1:43-46 — Come and See

John 1:35-42 — Restless Hearts

God invites all of us to experience him personally so that we can satisfy our spiritual thirst and find fulfillment in his presence. Let us accept the invitation gratefully. The next day John was there again with two of his disciples. When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, “Look, the Lamb of God!”

John 1:35-42 — Restless Hearts

John 1:32-34 — The Holy Spirit & Jesus

In his humanity, Jesus relied on the Holy Spirit for guidance, empowerment, and ministry. This reminds us of our need to be filled with the Holy Spirit and depend on his guidance and power in our own lives. Then John gave this testimony: “I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him. And I myself did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’ I have seen and I testify that this is God’s Chosen One.”

John 1:32-34 — The Holy Spirit & Jesus

John 1:32-34 — The Baptism of Jesus

By undergoing baptism, Jesus set an example for his followers, showing the importance of humility, obedience, and identification with the human condition. Let us follow in his footsteps. Then John gave this testimony: “I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him. And I myself did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’ I have seen and I testify that this is God’s Chosen One.”

John 1:32-34 — The Baptism of Jesus

John 1:32-34 — The Testimony of John

When John recognized Jesus as the long-awaited Messiah, he didn't hesitate to testify to the fact. Do we recognize Jesus as the Savior? If we do, do we testify to those who might not know him? Then John gave this testimony: “I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him. And I myself did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’ I have seen and I testify that this is God’s Chosen One.”

John 1:32-34 — The Testimony of John

John 1:29-31 — The Lamb of God

The phrase "Lamb of God" encapsulates the heart of the gospel message—Jesus' sacrificial death and triumphant resurrection—which brings hope, transformation, and reconciliation to all who embrace him as their Savior and Lord. The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! This is the one I meant when I said, ‘A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’ I myself did not know him, but the reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel.”

John 1:29-31 — The Lamb of God

John 1:19-28 — Meet John the Baptist

John the Baptism was a powerful example of humility, commitment, and authenticity. He prepared a way for the Lord. Let us prepare a way for his return. Now this was John’s testimony when the Jewish leaders in Jerusalem sent priests and Levites to ask him who he was. He did not fail to confess, but confessed freely, “I am not the Messiah.”

John 1:19-28 — Meet John the Baptist

John 1:15-18 — Law and Grace

Discover the transformative power of God's grace in John 1:15-18, as Jesus Christ offers redemption and salvation, surpassing the law given through Moses. (John testified concerning [Jesus]. He cried out, saying, “This is the one I spoke about when I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’”) Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.

John 1:15-18 — Law and Grace

John 1:14 — Shekinah Glory

Discover the profound meaning of Shekinah glory in John 1:14, as Jesus Christ embodies God's divine presence and transforms believers through the indwelling Holy Spirit. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 1:14 — Shekinah Glory

John 1:9-13 — Children of God

Explore the profound truth of becoming children of God through faith in Jesus, as revealed in John 1:9-13, and the life-changing implications it holds for believers. The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God — children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.

John 1:9-13 — Children of God

John 1:6-8 — The Witness

Discover the importance of being a witness to the light of Christ, as demonstrated by John the Baptist in John 1:6-8. There was a man sent from God whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.

John 1:6-8 — The Witness

John 1:1-5 — In the Beginning

John 1:1-5 unveils Jesus as the eternal Word, present at creation and the source of life and light for all humanity. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

John 1:1-5 — In the Beginning
