John 3 “Born Again”

In chapter 3 of John’s Gospel Jesus begins to talk about the notion of being born again. Theologians call this the doctrine of regeneration, in which a person goes from spiritual death to life by placing their faith in Christ. This chapter also gives us perhaps the most famous Bible verse: John 3:16. So we take an in-depth look at what Jesus is saying in this verse about finding life.

The Providence of God

The long title for this sermon is “Providence: The Cure for the Bitter, the Desperate, the Fearful, the Ungrateful, the Impatient, Complainers, Control Freaks, and More.” The reason is, providence is such a powerful teaching in the Bible; it shows us God’s constant, intimate, vigilant control over the universe, from the raising up of nations to the death of tiny birds.

For this reason, it is very practical; it affects how we relate to the events in our daily lives, and should have a great impact on how we react to interruptions, changes, failures and accidents.
