John the Gospel of Light and Life Part 3

Sermon Title: Two Miraculous Signs

Sermon Theme: The Identity of Jesus

Sermon Text: John 2:1-12; John 9:1-10

 

Introduction: John's Gospel is written from two perspectives: There is a Surface Level and then there is a Deeper Level:

John 1:1-5

A) What is said about Jesus?

B) How does Jesus bring life to me?

C) What response is required of me?

 

1) First Miraculous Sign: CHANGING WATER INTO WINE

John 2:1-5; Revelation 19:9; John 2:11-12; I Timothy 6:18-19

A) This story is not just about CHANGING WATER INTO WINE, but about how LIFE IN CHRIST is riCher and more joyful than a RITUALISTIC RELIGION.

 

2) SIXTH MIRACULOUS SIGN: THE HEALING OF THE BLIND MAN

John 9:1-9; Matthew 5:16; John 9:10-11; Genesis 2:7; John 9:12-25; John 9:35-41

A) Our BLINDNESS is not a PUNISHMENT FROM GOD, but an OPPORTUNITY FOR GOD'S WORK to be REVEALED THROUGH US to the world.
