Jesus, the reason for the season Jn 3:16

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Introduction: Over the past few weeks I have noticed that “The world” has truly got it twisted when it comes to celebrating Christmas.

A Savior with a Towel Mentality Jn. 13:1-11

When it comes to serving others, there is nobody like Jesus. He came down from heaven, was born of a virgin and wrapped in swaddling clothes to serve sinful man.

A Servant with a Towel Ministry John 13:12-20

Last week we discovered that when it comes to serving others, there is nobody like Jesus. Jesus, while living on earth, gave everything he had as the servant of God. Tirelessly, he gave sight, cured diseases, healed pains, raised the dead, and blessed humanity by bringing good news to the poor. We learned that it […]
