The Resurrection and The Life
The Gospel of John was “written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.” (John 20:31) One of the ways that John chose to reveal Jesus’ identity to his readers is through the seven “I am” statements that Jesus makes throughout the book. Each of these statements reveals something about who Jesus is. The purpose of this sermon series is to magnify the greatness of God in Jesus by seeing Him for who He says He is, so that we and our hearers “may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”

We encourage you to spend some time with God this week and go a bit deeper on this topic. Please consider these study questions for further reflection:
Jesus intentionally waited to respond to Mary & Martha’s “911 call” in order to reveal more of himself to them and to the disciples. Where in your life are you waiting for Jesus to do something? Is there anyplace in your life where you’re asking, “Where were you?!” If you can, talk or pray about that with someone safe this week.
Jesus was deeply moved and troubled by the sorrow and the havoc wreaked by sin, death, and the devil in the world. Consider some verses that tell us how Jesus singlehandedly overthrew this “great Goliath” with his own life, death, and resurrection (you could start with Galatians 4:4-5; Hebrews 2:14-15; 1 Corinthians 15:20-22, 26).
Why is it important to understand that, although we may get a foretaste now, the promises of God will only be fulfilled on the day of resurrection, when Jesus returns for us? (Mark 13:21-23; 2 Corinthians 5:2-5; 1 Corinthians 15:50-55; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)
