This Changes Everything: What Will You Do?
Welcome to Grace Chapel! The purpose of the Gospel of John is to demonstrate what Jesus did and; therefore, teach us who He is. The person and work of Jesus Christ demands a response. Who do you say Jesus is? Will you believe?

What has Jesus done?

The 7 Johannine Signs

• He changed water into wine (John 2:1–11)
• He healed an official’s son (4:46–54)
• He healed a paralytic at Bethesda (5:1–15)
• He fed the 5,000 (6:1–14)
• He walked on water (6:16–21)
• He healed the man blind from birth (9:1–7)
• He raised Lazarus from the dead (11:1–45)

What has Jesus done?

“Jesus’ miracles are never simply naked displays of power, still less neat conjuring tricks to impress the masses, but signs, significant displays of power that point beyond themselves to the deeper realities that could be perceived with the eyes of faith” (D. A. Carson, The Gospel According to John, 175).



What has Jesus done?

The Ultimate Sign

• Death – Jesus was the obedient Son of God who substituted Himself for humanity by dying on the cross for humanity.
• Resurrection – Jesus demonstrated His divine power by conquering death, sin, and hell.
• Exaltation – Jesus ascended to the Father and now rules and reigns as King.

Who is Jesus?

Confessions in John
• Nathanael (1:49) – “Rabbi, You are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel”
• The Samaritans (4:42) – “This is indeed the Savior of the world”
• The man born blind (9:33, 35–38) – “Lord, I believe”
• Martha (11:27) – “You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is coming into the world”
• The Disciples (16:30) – “This is why we believe that you came from God”
• Thomas (20:28) – “My Lord and my God”
Who is Jesus?

• What does it mean to be “the Christ, the Son of God?”
“He is the Son loved eternally and infinitely by the Father, such that the Father has sent his Son to do the works of God himself temporally and incarnationally, specifically exercising the authority and power of resurrection and judgment, all so that the Son will receive worship as God himself. In other words, Jesus understood that he was God the Son incarnate come to do the works of God as man” (Stephen Wellum, God the Son Incarnate, 162).
C. S. Lewis’ Trilemma: “I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: ‘I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept His claim to be God.’ That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and say the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic—on a level with the man who says he is a poached egg—or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God; or else a madman or something worse” (C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity, 52).


HOW will you RESPOND to Jesus?

“But these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”

• BEGIN your faith
• STRENGTHEN your faith
• SHARE your faith
Do people know you love Jesus?
THIS WEEK I WILL:

• Ask myself, “What do I believe about Jesus and why?”
• Meditate on John 1:1–18 and who Jesus is.
• Memorize 1 Corinthians 15:3–4.
• Make a list of people I need to share the Gospel with and then go share.
