*Sermon outline* #7 of 8 in Jn 1-11 series Pastor Todd Harris
*“/Do you love Me?”/*
/As He spoke, many put their faith in Him/ -John 8:30
 
*Many /believed/, but the proof is in  /______________/*
            It has been said,
'Faith alone saves, but faith that saves is not alone.'
Obedience is like the acorns on an oak tree
some new believers spring up but are scorch or choked
 
Proven faith is…                                           
            /holding to/ Jesus’ *_____________* in obedience  (v.
31)
                        -then we will know the truth (Jesus Himself /is/ truth)
and the truth will set us free
                        -then we’ll/ never see death/  (v.
51)                                     Jn 5:24
            /Examine yourselves to see if you’re in the faith/    2 Cor.
13:5
 
*Like father, like son*
            We’re either children of God or children of the devil
            We are servants of the one we obey                                  Romans 6:16
 
  *Children of God…                                                                                                            *
            Become children of God by faith in Jesus    Jn 3:16, Gal 3:26
            are truly set free from sin; its stranglehold & penalty
                        -we confess to God when we sin and find forgiveness
            *________* Jesus His Son, sent from the Father    1 John 5:1
            recognize and denounce evil, as Jesus does
 
  *Children of the devil…*
            are in bondage to sin, a ________ __________
 -like the Jews were in Egypt & Babylon & now by Rome
            are neither physically nor spiritually free, living a *_______*
                        even sons of Abraham are not automatically free
                        nor are religious leaders necessarily free  Gen.
21:10
            seek to kill Jesus even when offered His truth & life!
                        even so His enemies cannot convict Him of sin
                        want to stone Him because He claims to be *“___  ____”.*
*Message     “Do You Love Me?”**    
* *
* *
*v.30 /“as He spoke, many put their faith in Him.”/*
*There were new believers in those days.*
*    Many people heard Jesus speak.
*
*Heard His words.
Saw His miracles.*
* *
\\ *    1) Many rejected Him outright.
They wanted to stone Him that day.*
*    2) Others believed Him, put their faith in Him.
*
*Followed Him.
Obeyed Him.
*
*    3) Others begin to believe in Him, but did not follow through.*
*They did not obey Him, and so they fell away.*
*It’s the same today.*
* *
*PRAYER:  Father God, what marvelous words Jesus shared with the crowd that day.
How divided that crowd was then, and still is today.
How patiently and clearly Jesus spoke truth to all.
How He honored You, even when He was dishonored.
We wonder at how freely You sent Your one and only Son, even knowing that many would reject Him, but you sent Him because of Your love for the world You made.
*
*    Help us today to hear His voice here in this room and in our hearts and minds.
Help us to respond with faith and obedience, proving our love for Him and for You.
Lead us by Your Holy Spirit as we look into the Word.
For Jesus’ sake, Amen.*
* *
\\ *Many /believed/, but the proof of belief is in _/OBEDIENCE/_ to Jesus *
* *
*Some of you perhaps have not yet believed.*
*    I want you to hear Jesus today and put your faith in Him.*
*        Your next step is: Begin to obey Him.*
* *
*Some of you are new believers, and others’ve followed for a long time*
*  Ask yourself: ???What proves your faith?*
*            How do people know you love Jesus?
???How does He know?*
*        ???What is your obedience quotient these days?*
*        ???Is your love for Him growing, or is it growing cold?*
*Helpful saying: “Faith alone saves, but faith that saves is not alone.”*
*    (On that basis my salvation was in jeopardy age 20-30*
*At age 30 I had to repent and start over as a baby Christian.
Why?*
*I had a faith, but it wasn’t backed up with obedience)  *
* *
*James: Faith without works is dead.*
*                Show me your faith, and I’ll show you my works.*
* *
    A disciple of Jesus follows Jesus and obeys His Word
 
EX: Obedience is like the acorns on an oak tree
            The roots, trunk, branches, and leaves all work to produce fruit
            w~/o obedience, no fruit
 
        1) XREF: parable of the soils       4 soils, path, rocks, weeds, good soil  
            -some new believers spring up but w~/o roots are scorched
or among weeds are choked
                    obedience is good soil to produce a good crop
 
        2) XREF: Jesus is the vine, we the branches; 
                    if we abide = bear fruit, fruit that will last
if we abide not = wither, burned
    apart from Me, you can do nothing
 
        3) XREF:  READ   Matthew 7   /everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.
26But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.
27The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash."/
\\ Proven faith is…             
    /holding to/ Jesus’ *_TEACHING_* in obedience  (v.
31)
        Two components “now & not yet”
 
        1) -then we will know the truth (Jesus Himself /is/ truth)
and the truth will set us free
 
    *true freedom* *is not* doing whatever you want, when you want
    *True freedom is* only discovered by knowing God through Jesus Christ
                                and putting His words into practice.
*is* having a relationship with God,
                            experiencing the life *now* that God intended you to have
 
        EX: Adam & Eve originally knew true freedom
