John 5:1-18 “We are taught, for one thing, in this passage, what misery sin has brought into the world. We read of a man who had been ill for no less than thirty-eight years! For thirty-eight weary summers and winters he had endured pain and infirmity. He had seen others healed at the waters of Bethesda, and going to their homes rejoicing. But for him there had…

How expectant and aware are we of the Lord’s work? Martin Lloyd Jones once admonished his hearers concerning their expectations in coming to worship the Lord. Jesus recognized the over expectancy of signs and wonders and admonished his hearers for lack of awareness of the constancy of God’s work every day. So, we come to worship this day expecting the one and only God to reveal truth,…

“In meaning as well as in time, the miracles lie between the incarnation and the ascension. They look backward to the one event and forward to the other.” Westcott “That all our Lord’s miracles were deeply significant, I do not deny. That all were intended to convey deep spiritual lessons, I make no question. All I maintain is that they require reverent and delicate handling, and that…

We worship the Triune God of miracles: “In calling them miracles we do not mean that they are contradictions or outrages; we mean that, left to her own resources, she (nature) could never produce them.’ C.S. Lewis “God hath a right to dispense with the ordinary laws of nature; he hath a power to alter their course by an arrest of miracles, and make them come short,…

We worship our God who gave His commands for the good of His people. The commands of God are perfect. They teach the people of God in every historic covenant to obey God and the New Covenant is no different than any other covenant. The Israelites were instructed to teach and discuss these commandments with the children through all of life. Moses saw God give the Moral…

We worship our God the LORD who is one! Israel traveled from Egypt, a land of pluralism (worship of many gods). Egyptians even considered their Pharaoh a god. The Israelites voyaged though other lands and tribes that worshipped several deities, but none of them was Jehovah. He is God eternal who does not change. He planned, created, and sustains all things. Therefore, our God is not one…

We worship our God who gave the Law to all mankind, and especially, for the good of His people. His commandments teach of His being, power and glory. His Testimonies usher the people into proper worship corporately and privately. God is to be worshipped with all of our being from the very core to the outer shell. He establishes these precepts for practice in daily life and…

We worship our God who commands watchful prayer in perseverance. God’s answer to prayer, no matter the direction of the answer, does not annul the directive. Paul establishes God’s edict to pray and the time frame, “at all times.” Prayer is not out of mind, but a state of mind for the Christian. He calls the Ephesian church to watchfully pray and petition the Father on behalf…

We worship our God who provided weapons for His people. The weapons He afforded us defend against the flaming arrows of the evil one and are directly from the words of God. At times, it seems believers stand alone in the world. They do not. Yes, they stand with the church, but ultimately they stand with the Omni-present Triune God. Paul directed the church in Ephesus to…

We worship the God of truth who gives armor to all His soldiers. Paul commanded the church in Ephesus to put on the full armor of God. His command is by way of imagery. Picture soldiers going into battle. The war we face as Christians is a war in which truth, righteousness and the gospel are fundamentals in the fight against the world forces of darkness. We…
