John 6:35-40 – I am the bread of life (part 2)

WHAT MAKES THIS STATEMENT TRUE?

Why we can believe it.

 

Intro:

 

An authoritative statement – I am the Bread of Life, and whoever comes and believes will never hunger and thirst

35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. 

 

 

Their unbelief and His response.

36 But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe

 

 

What God has started.  God will bring to completion

37 All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out.

 

Building a good theological foundation: (We must get God right)

 

  1. His Attributes
    1. God is loving, wise, fair and just, merciful,
    2. God is a jealous God –
      1. For His glory and the faithfulness of His people
      2. Exodus 20:4-5 says, “You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God…” Notice that God is jealous when someone gives to another something that rightly belongs to Him.

 

  1. His involvement
    1. God is actively involved with His creation….HIS CREATION.
      • He did not get things going and just step aside, His sovereignty allows Him to be involved in all things within His creation.

 

  1. His will
    1. Sovereign /Secret Will
      1. The Secret things belong to God
    2. Moral/Revealed Will
      1. What He has given and shown us through His word.

 

  1. His plan
    1. God’s Sovereignty – Real Human Choices/Human responsibility
    2. Friends not enemies – We do not reconcile friends.

 

Building on that  foundation

  1. All that the FATHER GIVES
    1. FOR ALL HAVE SINNED – because we are sinners we need a Savior.
    2. We are dead, so God must make us alive
  1. WILL COME
    1. God is God and has a plan. That plan is redemption.
  1. WHOEVER COMES TO ME I WILL NEVER CAST OUT
    1. That plan has always involved His greatest creation….People.
    2. In the OT it was the nation of Israel, in the New Covenant it is the church.
    3. All the redeemed in Christ. The Church.  The Children of God (John 1:12)

 

It has been accomplished through the Gospel

The life, death, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ

38 For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will but the will of him who sent me. 39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day. 40 For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.”
