Text: John 1:19-28
Date & Place: EEBCAR July 5 AM (audio)
Title: Straighter Paths!
Primary Theological Point: What should we learn? Jesus reveals Himself for salvation, our job is to proclaim Him that the path is straight
Primary Practical Point: What should we do? Live and teach the way of Christ plainly.
Effective question from Pharisee contingent: How dare you tell us what to do if you aren't God Himself?
- Setting: Bethany beyond Jordan
- Connections: Not the Christ
We live in the wilderness--that's where the voices cry out for the paths of the Lord, that is where people seek the truth.
- Church: teach the whole counsel of God
- Salvation: whether straight or not, you need to respond to the call of Christ
Take Home Action: Let your life and words be the straight path through which Jesus is clearly seen to the world.
