Safety In Christ: John 17:12

Safety In Christ: John 17:12

November 14, 2022
In this sermon, Pastor Kohl speaks on John 17:12. Where Jesus prays, "While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; and none of them is lost except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled."  Do we have safety in Christ? We live in a world filled with examples of Christians enduring hardships of all sorts. Does Jesus keep His own, today?

That They may be One; John 17:11

November 7, 2022

In this sermon, Pastor Kohl speaks on John 17:11. Where Jesus prays; "...Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are." What does Jesus mean when He asks the Father to make His people one?  We are not just individually, the bride or body of Christ, but the whole community of true believers are. What does this look like in our lives?

Jesus Loves His Own; John 17:9

Jesus Loves His Own; John 17:9

October 10, 2022

In this sermon, Pastor Kohl speaks on John 17:9. Where Jesus says, "“I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours." This is a shocking passage. It points to the idea of there being a separation between how God treats those who are His and those who are not. You want to be on God's side.

The Foundation of Life: John 17:7-8

October 3, 2022

In this sermon, Pastor Kohl speaks on John 17:7-8. Where Jesus describes the disciples He is praying for.  Jesus says, "Now they have known that all things which You have given Me are from You. For I have given to them the words which You have given Me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came forth from You; and they have believed that You sent Me." In an insane world: how do we know what Truth is? In our life do we receive and value God's word as we ought?
