John brought a word of clarity to a dispute over religious rituals and ministry success. The point of all ritual and the purpose of all ministry is the increase of the glory and grace of Jesus. He must increase. Today we ask the Lord for clarity in our minds, faith in our hearts, and focus in our lives, that we may pursue the increase of Jesus in our congregation and city.

Justin and Scott take a look at John 3:16-21, discussing how we are to view the world and eternity. 

The most famous Bible verse in the world reveals the greatest mission ever accomplished on earth. The Son of God became a man to save sinners for eternal life. May hearing the words of grace in this passage draw people to Christ in faith and send our congregation on mission in faithfulness.

John 3 is home to some of the most well known verses in scripture. But what does this chapter have to do with missions? Scott and Justin discuss this and more this week. 
Justin and Scott look back at John chapter 2, discussing the similarities and differences between Jesus’ zeal and our anger.
In this month’s Families at Grace podcast, Savannah, Josh, and Jason discuss the challenges and opportunities for students as they head back to school.

The well known account of Jesus cleansing the Temple is about much more than righteous anger. Jesus’ actions and words in the Temple that day expressed his love and pointed to his redeeming death and resurrection. As we consider what Jesus did and said, may the God of hope fill us with joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit we may abound in hope (Romans 15:13).

In John 2, we are told that Jesus manifested his glory at the wedding feast in Cana. Justin and Scott discuss how we experience this glory on a daily basis.

At a wedding with his disciples, Jesus turned water into wine. This was his first sign. The miracle Jesus performed was significant because in it he communicated what is true about himself. Jesus is superior. He is the fulfillment of all that came before him, the final Word, the sure Way, the complete Truth, and the gift of Life. This is the glory of Jesus. On that day, his followers further believed in him. Today, may we see the glory of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. Let us, too, believe in him.
