How To Have The Endless Joy-Filled Life (5 of 37)
Series: Christ In All The Scripture
To begin our look at Christ's offer of endless, overflowing, joy filled life look at John 20:31.
Last century, blind Helen Lemmel wrote, "O soul are you weary and troubled? No light in the darkness you see? There's life for a look at the Savior, and life more abundant and free. Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face…" And that is what we exactly want to do this morning. Look with me at THE CREDENTIALS OF THE KING OF THE ENDLESS JOY FILLED LIFE!
Jesus is introduced as the Savior of the world, in the Gospel by John. That is the purpose the Spirit of God moved upon him to write this Book. In the 1st chapter John introduces Jesus by seven successive titles of Deity. This morning the last three have to do with the Credentials of the King. Have you considered His credentials? He has the authority and power to give exactly what He offered. Before we examine those credentials, look for a moment this morning at His offer of an overflowing, endless, joy filled life in John 10:7-11 please stand with me as we hear Christ's words:
Therefore Jesus said again, "I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep. 8 All who ever came before me were thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. 9 I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. He will come in and go out, and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. 11 "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
Now the question for each of us this morning is this: If Jesus offers a life of never ending joys, and He is who He proves through His credentials that He is - why aren't we taking Him up on this life of endless joys?
Now for the credentials.
