Redeemer Church is committed to the preaching of the Scriptures (2 Timothy 4:2) because the Word of God is the most powerful force on the earth (Hebrews 4:12-13) when joined with the work of the Holy Spirit (1 Thessalonians 1:5). We believe that true preaching exposes the meaning of Scripture. Therefore, the meaning of the Bible passage should be the meaning of the preacher’s sermon. The expository sermons below are posted for your spiritual encouragement. Please enjoy!
He is the Bridegroom (John 3:22-30)Ryan Limbaugh, August 27, 2017
Part of the He is series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
|« He is the Savior||None||He is Above All »|
22 After this Jesus and his disciples went into the Judean countryside, and he remained there with them and was baptizing. 23 John also was baptizing at Aenon near Salim, because water was plentiful there, and people were coming and being baptized 24 (for John had not yet been put in prison).
25 Now a discussion arose between some of John's disciples and a Jew over purification. 26 And they came to John and said to him, “Rabbi, he who was with you across the Jordan, to whom you bore witness—look, he is baptizing, and all are going to him.” 27 John answered, “A person cannot receive even one thing unless it is given him from heaven. 28 You yourselves bear me witness, that I said, ‘I am not the Christ, but I have been sent before him.’ 29 The one who has the bride is the bridegroom. The friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly at the bridegroom's voice. Therefore this joy of mine is now complete. 30 He must increase, but I must decrease.” (ESV)
