God's Provision of Truth (10 of 18)
Series: The If's, Ands and Buts of the Bible
Dr. Ernest L. Easley
John 1:1-5, 14-18
As we continue our series of messages under the heading: The If's, Ands and Buts of the Bible … turn with me to the gospel according to John. We're going to begin reading in a moment from chapter 1.
Now for you who are joining us today for perhaps the first time .. or perhaps it's been awhile since you've worshipped with us … let me say to you that when we talk about the "IF's" of the Bible .. we're talking about The Promises of God. Though all of God's promises are trustworthy .. most of them are conditional. God says, "If you do this, then I'll do that."

Now today we're going to see the second half of this first couplet that's tied together with the word "and." We're going to find that not only is Jesus full of GRACE .. He is full of TRUTH! If you're looking for absolute truth today .. look no further than Jesus who is full of truth! Full of Grace and Full of Truth!
