Weekly Tip #4, Fall 2016
In the Gospel of Mark, chapter 1, we see that John the Baptist prepared the way for Jesus preaching the Gospel. In John 1:29 he said, “The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” This proclamation along with Jesus baptism caught the attention of John’s own disciples, who began to be curious about Him.
Later in John chapter 1, Jesus is followed and calls some of His first disciples. Jesus disciples then saw Him turn water into wine at a wedding, Jesus clears the temple of it’s merchants and then he has a meeting with “a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews.”
Jesus gives this powerful message in John 3:14-17, “14And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15that whoever believes in him may have eternal life. 16“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.”
Transformation on your campus or in your ministry situation only takes place when people place their trust in Christ. Change must come first from the inside out.
