John 8:12-20 Light is a powerful thing! It has many wonderful qualities. It transfers energy. if it were not for sunlight, the earth would be very, very cold, and there would be no life. keep in mind, there is quite a bit of life in caves, where there isn't any light. It transfers information, allowing us to, with our eyes and brain, interpret where things are in relation to other things, and how that's changing. The celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles plays as prime background to our Lord’s teaching, in this chapter and the one before it. Why? This extravagant claim that Jesus makes in this portion of scripture, stands just before the description of the lighting of the four huge lamps in the temple’s court of women and of the enthusiastic celebration that took place under the light. The Mishnah which is the Jewish oral writings says “Men of piety and good works’ danced through the night, holding burning torches in their hands and singing songs and praises.

John 8:1-11 Let me start by asking you if you've ever noticed yourself doing this? You see someone, and you judge them right away by their appearance. Maybe they are nicely dressed, they have a nice car, and you think they are a wonderful and successful person. Or you see someone in rip jeans, with a tattoo all over their body, multiple earrings, and you think to yourself "they are someone you don’t want to get near." And yet, by putting labels on people, you limit yourself to seeing them as you think they are, and not necessarily how they really are. We come to a passage that speaks volumes to heart of the natural man and to the Christian at times! Reason being we forget the grace given by our merciful Saviour who died for our sins. I don’t know about you but I find this passage very convicting for the way I treat others at times. The Truth of the matter we are all guilty of sin! We all point fingers at others! We all are guilty of throwing stones at others.


John 7:40-53 There are some things in life that you can be neutral about but Jesus is not one of them. Yet many people around the globe are still trying to be neutral about Jesus. They claim that Jesus was a good man, maybe a even a great man, but that was long ago and in another time and it has nothing to do with how they live their lives. And it certainly does not require that I go to church much less belong to a church. They say, “You don’t have to go to church to believe in Jesus.” In Luke 11:23 and in Matt 12:30 Jesus said, “He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad.” See we need to understand that faith in Jesus always has been and will continue to be a dividing line in this world. In parts of the world today where Christianity is not the major religion it is still very much so. In countries in which Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam are the predominant religions, to come to faith in Christ often means being disowned by your f


John 7:37-39 Water is the basic component of life. Think about it; life cannot be sustained without water. Human beings are made largely of water. All forms of life die in the absence of water. When scientists want to investigate the existence of life they look for the existence of water. In order to determine whether life exists on Mars they have been probing to find water. Do you know the importance of water to our physical bodies? When our bodies fail to retain the right amount of water, dehydration sets in. It is the water in our body that determines the vitality, strength, and energy associated with daily living. Think about these facts associated with our body and water: The human body is ⅔ water. The body absorbs cold water faster than hot water. By the time you are 70-years-old, you will have required 1½ million gallons of water. Studies show that increasing water consumption can decrease fat deposits.  Water is a natural appetite suppressant. If you loose 2
