Glorify God, Live Together, Make Disciples

Sermons by Luke Gorsett

The Greatest Servant of All

John 13:1–20 Following Christ means receiving his loving service and then exemplifying it  Five aspects of Christ’s love (1) A perfect love (1-3) (2) A humble love (4-5) (3) A contingent love (6-8) (4) A determining love (9-11; 18-19) (5) A reproducing love (12-17; 20)

Triumphant Humility

Triumphant Humility Since King Jesus triumphs in humility, his disciples must follow his example. John 12:12-26 Two scenes that show the paradoxical nature of Christ’s kingdom 1) The Spontaneous reception of the King (12-19) 2) The true glory of the King (20-26)

The Resurrection and the Life

Jesus’ greatest love is not sparing us from suffering but showing us his glory. Four great truths about Jesus: 1) He is sovereign over all circumstances (1–16) 2) He is the Resurrection and the Life (17–27) 3) He is passionate against sin (28–37) 4) He has power over death (38–44)

True Discipleship to “I Am”

True discipleship is freedom from self-interest and the devil and freedom for God. Jesus addresses three issues to clarify true discipleship: The promise of freedom (31–36) The problem of parentage (37–47) The pinnacle of authority (48–59)
