A FATHER’S WORST NIGHTMARE COMES TRUE

Image
John 4:46-54
Nothing can shatter a parents spirit more quickly or more completely than affliction falling upon their child. I can remember rushing to Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto with Julie because of complications with Rachel’s valve that connects to her heart [5 hours after her birth]. I can remember rushing Hannah to the hospital after her fall and busted her two bottom front teeth out. I can remember rushing to Sick Kids in Winnipeg because Sarah’s opening in her skull was swelling up and the doctors were very concerned for her  because she might have meningitis. These are shattering moments for any parent! They’re moments that make you feel utterly helpless and desperate for someone to take your babies pain away. I know Julie has much stronger stomach when it comes to cuts, blood or needles! So I can’t image what my little Sarah was going though as they stuck this long needle to collect fluid out of her spine, to see what’s going on in her little body. BUT as bad as those moments…

THE SENSE OF URGENCY

John 4:27-42
We are in age where this word “urgency” gets put on a shelf and left to collect dust. Think about it! The more you grow in grace through His word your eyes become more and more aware of the sin that permeates throughout the world and the sin that is in your own life, but there's something that we’re lacking to do in our Christian lives? A desire to go with urgency for the world to hear the gospel message; a message of hope for people who are still slaves to their sin. Sometimes we make excuses or blame it on Televangelists, Street preachers, the Westboro Baptist Church, or we blame our lack of urgency on the American affluence in our lives. YES! Some of those people, methods and things have made it impossible or wrecked our opportunities to share the hope that lies within us. Can I just say up front! That’s cop out to the deeper problem.......you and me! We tend to make excuses before we ever get an opportunity to have a gospel encounter. See! The problem is that we do…

JESUS CAME TO SAVE BAD PEOPLE

John 4:1-18
Approximately 150 000 people will die today! The question that troubles me is where will they spend eternity? Did the gospel message reach their ears? Did anyone take the time to share the precious truth of the gospel with them? What’s shocking is that the vast majority of those people are entering Hell. Christ commanded his followers to share the Gospel with those who are perishing! The question for each one of us is! Who have you shared with today? Every day we have the blessed opportunity and ability [through the Spirit] to share that news with every person we come in contact with. No exceptions! No excuses! Every encounter should be a gospel encounter. ASK YOURSELF: When was the last time you shared with someone who didn't fit your lifestyle? Throughout Jesus’ ministry He was filled with compassion for sinners young and old. Jesus, didn't care about race, creeds, or colour when it came to importance of sin, the gospel and eternal life. Jesus knew the hearts and …
