Sermon Text for Sunday, April 1, 2012 (John 19:28-37)

John 19:28-37, HCSB

28 After this, when Jesus knew that everything was now accomplished that the Scripture might be fulfilled, He said, “I’m thirsty!”

29 A jar full of sour wine was sitting there; so they fixed a sponge full of sour wine on hyssop and held it up to His mouth.

30 When Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” Then bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.
Jesus’ Side Pierced

31 Since it was the preparation day, the Jews did not want the bodies to remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a special day). They requested that Pilate have the men’s legs broken and that their bodies be taken away.

32 So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first man and of the other one who had been crucified with Him.

33 When they came to Jesus, they did not break His legs since they saw that He was already dead.

34 But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and at once blood and water came out.

35 He who saw this has testified so that you also may believe. His testimony is true, and he knows he is telling the truth.

36 For these things happened so that the Scripture would be fulfilled: Not one of His bones will be broken.

37 Also, another Scripture says: They will look at the One they pierced.

Sermon Text for Sunday, March 11, 2012 (Ephesians 4:29-32)

This Sunday I will conclude a two-part sermon series on "Developing Healthy Relationships." This week's text is . . .

Ephesians 4:29-32, HCSB

29 No foul language is to come from your mouth, but only what is good for building up someone in need, so that it gives grace to those who hear.

30 And don’t grieve God’s Holy Spirit. You were sealed by Him for the day of redemption.

31 All bitterness, anger and wrath, shouting and slander must be removed from you, along with all malice.

32 And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.

See you Sunday for life-changing worship.

For His Glory!
Pastor Joe
