Last week in our Ponder and Pray feature, we looked at the first of three chapters of Jesus’ Last Supper Discourse in which Jesus declared that He is the Way, the Truth and the Life, and then promised the Holy Spirit, a helping spirit of peace to guide them — and believers today — through life. Today we’ll find another I AM statement in chapter 15 and more comfort about how the Holy Spirit, also known as the Spirit of Truth, will guide us through the harsh reality that the world hates us because we follow Jesus.
In this week's podcast, Jamie Harms looks at Jesus' final I AM statement — I am the true vine — and highlights three areas in which abiding in this vine produces abundant life for us.
Without a doubt, the past 12 months have been dramatically altered by COVID-19 and brought a range of emotions and reasons to grieve. In today's podcast, Jamie Harms takes us to John 11 and 14 to see how Jesus responded to grief — both His own and that of His friends. His example encourages us as we look at how we process our own emotions and support those around us.
Welcome to our fourth week in the Gospel of John. Today Jamie Harms introduces John 8, 9 and 10 with a short podcast teaching on how the highest form of justice allows for mercy. She will touch on the stories of the woman caught in adultery and on the blind man given sight.
In this week's Come and See journey through the Gospel of John, we're in chapters 5, 6 and 7. We will witness three more signs and wonders, watch people grapple with the teachings of Christ and who He truly is, and come across the first of the seven “I AM” statements.
