That's a wrap for our Fall Conference on John 4-7!! We had a rich weekend of encountering Jesus as the one who meets every human situation & need with God's life. Thanks to all who joined and shared! For audio & highlights check http://www.college-conference.org

When we drink the Spirit we become a channel through which others can drink the Spirit. John 7:37-39 #gospeloflife

In John 7:37, Jesus says, If anyone thirsts let Him come to ME and drink, not go to God… because He is God. #gospeloflife

John 7 presents the varied opinions about Jesus. Jesus doesn’t address any of them. Instead he pierces through the noise with a cry about thirst and living water. #gospeloflife

When we experience anxiety, we seek security. The question is where do we look—goods or God? #gospeloflife

Forever pleasures are found at God's right hand, in Christ. Psalm 16:11 #gospeloflife

Figuratively, to thirst is to experience a strong ardent desire for something that we crave vehemently and urgently. We need to see the principle in scripture and then feel it in the story of John 7. #gospeloflife

John 7—To be human is to live with an undeniable thirst that progress only clarifies and Jesus only satisfies. #gospeloflife

4 practical ways to eat Jesus:
1. Praying God's word
2. Calling on His name
3. Going along with the inner sense of our spirit
4. Speaking God's word

All proper “doing” in the Christian life comes out of proper “eating.” #gospeloflife

God's economy depends on disciples seeing the revelation in John 6 about eating Christ to live by him. #gospeloflife

We get out of the world by baptism (Red Sea). The world gets out of us by eating (manna). #gospeloflife

Eating determines your destiny. #gospeloflife

John equates three actions: to believe (1:12) is to receive (6:47) is to eat (6:54). #gospeloflife

John 6 presents a paradigm shift in man's relationship with God from "doing" to "eating." 6:28-35 #gospeloflife

Jesus came not to be culturally or politically great, but organically small. Not to be a king (yet), but to be crumbs for us to eat. John 6:15 + Matt 15:27 #gospeloflife

The five loaves and two fish signify the generating and redeeming aspects of Christ’s life that satisfy our spiritual hunger. #gospeloflife

John 6 presents a picture of the busyness of humanity that results in deep spiritual hunger. #gospeloflife

We're live with session 3 on John 6!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGd83vpMiu4&feature=youtu.be

The next session of our Fall Conference starts in 45 min! We'll be looking at John 6! Outline: http://www.college-conference.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/F20-CC-Msg-3.pdf #gospeloflife

That was a short but loaded session! We’ll be back on at 7:30 tonight for John 6!

Three “Ts” of baptism:
Termination—Rom 6:6
Transfer—Col 1:13
Testimony—1 Pet 3:21

Baptism is a testimony—an outward display of an inward reality. #gospeloflife

Baptism is symbolized by the crossing of the Red Sea to get out of Egypt, where their slave masters were terminated. God doesn’t intend his saved people to remain enslaved people. Freedom comes through baptism.

Practical Helps to Overcome the Spiritual Effects of the Pandemic:
3. Have daily prayer calls with your companions to keep your heart soft, away from sin, and stirred to love and good works—Heb 3:13, 10:24
4. Replace “for me” content w/ “to me for you” content—Eph 3:2; 1 Jn 5:16

Practical Helps to Overcome the Spiritual Effects of the Pandemic:
1. Realize we’re together even when alone—Heb 12:1
2. Realize we’re called to meet together all the more at the end of the age—Heb 10:25

Four things to do to get freed from impotence:
1. Come to Jesus just as you are
2. Open your struggles to other believers
3. Take Christ as life
4. Don't be passive

Christ's Body is the repository of His life and if you just open to the Body, life will flow in. #gospeloflife

One word from Jesus is enough because "the message conveys Me." John 5:39-40 #gospeloflife

"Those who hear will live." John 5:25 // Position yourself to hear God's word and life will come. #gospeloflife

In ourself we are stuck in cycle of inadequacy. The only way to break through is to experience Christ as life. #gospeloflife

The basis of our approach to God never changes, no matter how mature we may be. Our basis is who Christ is and what He has done. #gospeloflife

Our spiritual resume and accomplishments don’t qualify us to come to God. We can come just as we are based on Jesus' blood. #gospeloflife

All the condemnation related to our inability to measure up to God’s standard was shifted to one person, Jesus on the cross. Now there is no condemnation to those in Christ. #gospeloflife

The impotent man in John 5 is a picture of our inability to keep God’s law. What did God do? He sent his Son in the flesh to put on human weakness and deal with it at the root. #gospeloflife

What does the spiritual impotence described in John 5 look like? Read Romans 7. #goseploflife

Religion depends on man's self-effort, but because sin has weakened our ability, fulfilling its demands is impossible. Rom 8:3 #gospeloflife

Religion as a product of human invention is to worship God and behave ourselves without Christ. God didn't design to give man religion but Christ. #gospeloflife

John 5 shows us the inadequacy of religion’s law-keeping and the sufficiency of the Son’s life-giving. #gospeloflife

The fact that Christ is life points to the fact that He needs to be experienced by us, not just understood by us. #gospeloflife

John tells us what science can't: what life is. Life is Jesus. John 14:6 #gospeloflife

The Gospel of John presents Christ as life, not religion as duty. #gospeloflife

The healing of God's life comes to us in God's word. "He sent forth His word and healed them." (Psa 107:20) #gospeloflife

Jesus' healing words flow to us in the healing river of life that typifies the Spirit. John 4:50 + Ezek 47:8-9 + John 7:38-39 #gospeloflife

Faith in Jesus' word brings life and healing. "Jesus said, Go, your son lives. The man believed the word which Jesus said... and his child was living." John 4:50-51 #gospeloflife

Of the 9 cases in John:
1 is related to our spirit
2-8 are related to our soul
9 is related to our body

These 9 cases in John are a complete diagnosis of humanity's spiritual problems. Jesus addresses each one with the divine life. #gospeloflife

The first half of John's Gospel presents 9 cases of how encountering Jesus changes everything. #gospeloflife
