I told Billy after he preached last week on the previous section, that I went back and I underlined a few phrases in my Bible because they stuck out to me, they stood out to me as he explained that passage. And the phrase is the phrase that we see in verse 23, “wait eagerly.” That’s actually one word in the Greek. And it’s the same word that...

The thesis for our study this evening, just before I read our verses, you’ll hear me repeat this over and over again and if you remember nothing else here’s the phrase to remember – the only way to live as a follower of Jesus, the only way to live as a true follower of Jesus, is to become a practicing Trinitarian and to consciously live every day as...

John 16:5-33 Give Me Joy in My Heart

Please turn with me to the gospel of John. We have been in recent days in the upper room discourse beginning with the wonderful and extraordinary event of Jesus washing the disciples’ feet in John 13, and now this evening we are in chapter 16 and we pick up the reading at verse 5.

Almost every book on preaching that...
