BLOG ON: SERMON Stumble Yet Stay
Northside Baptist
Brandon Nealy
Ever since there have been disciples, there have been false disciples. John 6 reveals to us that while Jesus walked on Earth the same was true. There were many who saw Jesus but only some who truly believed. Even within the tight group of the twelve, there was the apostate, Judas.

The difficulty is that both the true and the false seem outwardly very similar. Both are religious. Both seek Jesus in some sense. Both desire to relate to Jesus in some sense. Both, as modeled in John 6, want Jesus to be a king of a sorts. And, all are offended by Jesus words. Both true and false disciples stumble over the true identity of Christ, the true mission of Christ and the true message of Christ. The difference is that the true disciples stumble and yet stay. The false stumble and leave.

In John 6, Peter stands as a perfect example of perseverance. He isn't certain or filled with an inordinate sense of confidence. He has a "loyal despair." He doubts. He is confused and perplexed and even offended by the words and identity of Jesus. Yet, he stays. Listen to this sermon to learn from his example.

Reflection Questions

  1. Have you ever been tempted to stray from Christ? Have you ever wandered and returned to the Lord?
  2. Have you ever known someone who seemed to be a true disciple yet defected?
  3. How do we explain individuals who have had in the past what seemed to be an interest and a love for Jesus, but now live in unrepentant sin and disinterest toward Him?
  4. Explain the difference between, "If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciple" and "if you abide in my word, you will become truly my disciple"? (John 8:31)
  5. Pastor Brandon said that every disciple stumbles over Jesus. What does this mean?
  6. Pastor Brandon said that true disciples stumble but stay. What does this mean?
  7. By what means does God give "staying" grace?

Work and Margins
MONDAY, FEBRUARY 03, 2014
Posted by: Northside Baptist | more..
Work and Margins God calls us to work. Yet, we are not to work too much. Solomon teaches us that the wise man has one fistful of work and one fistful of rest. But, as we work in this sin broken world we find that it is hard to keep that balance.
