The 15 Names of Jesus – Given in the Book of John

In the Gospel of John we see Jesus in a way we don't see Him in any of the other three gospels. Here are 15 names of Jesus we see in the book of John. #Biblestudy #John #WomensBibleStudy #GoodMorningGirls

When my children were babies, I used to rock them and sing  Jesus Loves Me, Jesus Loves the Little Children and There’s Just Something About that Name…in that order.  That final song was not only soothing to my babies but to me as well and so I would find myself singing it over and over and over.  Sometimes I fell asleep in the rocking chair with my baby in my arms, humming that song.  If you have never heard it before (it’s an oldie) here’s the lyrics:

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus; there’s just something about that name.
Master, Savior, Jesus, like the fragrance after the rain;
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, let all Heaven and earth proclaim
Kings and kingdoms will all pass away,
But there’s something about that name.

That name!

There’s just something about that name!

We do not have a distant God – we have a personal God.  Jesus’ character and nature is revealed through the many names He is given in the Bible and so today I want to look...

Holding On To Your Faith in the Midst of Doubts

Doubts come even to strong believers. In the book of John we see how Jesus responded to doubt and why we should be holding on to faith in the midst of doubt. #Biblestudy #John #WomensBibleStudy #GoodMorningGirls

Doubt is the unique problem of a believer. 

We have to believe in something, in order to doubt it.  So usually in the New Testament when it focuses on doubt, it is referencing believers.

Within the context of faith, doubt may arise when our burdens feel too heavy to lift.

Doubt may arise when expectations go unmet or when there seems to be no answer to a challenging situation.

Doubt may arise when we feel lonely, rejected or depressed or when we face struggle after struggle, with no end in sight.

Doubt may arise when we are walking with the Lord faithfully and then tragedy hits.

Doubt may arise when small lingering trials go on and on and we wonder where God is in the midst of it all.

Doubt arises because of our humanity and while it may be human – it is not okay to remain in a state of doubt.  The good news is, even in our doubts, the God we are not sure of,  is certain to meet us right where we are.  And so that brings us to today’s passage in John chapter 20.

After...

3 Things We Must Remove From Our Lives In Order to Have Deeper Intimacy With God

In the Gospel of John we see three things every believer must remove from their lives in order to have deeper intimacy with God. #Biblestudy #John #WomensBibleStudy #GoodMorningGirls

Do you wish you had deeper intimacy with God?

Do you wish you could clearly hear God’s voice?

Is your daily to-do list keeping you from time in the Word?

Are you sometimes embarrassed of how much you love Jesus and afraid to let others see that deep affection?

Then this video is for you!

Join me as we look at Mary and Martha, from John chapter 12, and discuss the 3 things that we must remove from our lives, in order to have deeper intimacy with God.

{If you are reading this in an email or feed – click here to view the video}

In the video, I share about a time when I was humiliated while trying to share the gospel with a woman I had been praying for.  Sometimes, my “over the top” love of Jesus comes off wrong to unbelievers but I refuse to shrink back and be ashamed of Jesus.  If you’ve been there, then today’s scripture will be an encouragement to you.

In the video, we looked at the very popular story of Mary and Martha from Luke 10 when Jesus visited...

Welcome back to Week 3 in the Book of John!  This week we will cross the half way point of our reading.  Up until this point, we have been moving quickly through the life of Jesus but we are about to slow down.  Chapters 12 through 21 all happened within a one week period culminating in Jesus’ death and resurrection.  This is going to be SO good! Keep on going!!!

If you missed week 1’s wrap up – it is here and if you missed week 2’s wrap up – it is here.

On Week 1, I posted a background video to the book of John. That video covered John chapters one through twelve.  So here is the second part to that video, with more background information covering John chapters thirteen through twenty-one.
