God’s Glory is More Important Than Praise


John 12:44-50


In this passage, John summarized quite well.

Jesus was the One whom His Father sent.

Father and the Son are One but distinct.

Christ is the Life and the Light of the world.


We will be judged by what we accept or

Reject about what Jesus revealed.

Jesus came to give us eternal life.

He died for us.  He is the final Judge.


My grandfather said to an official,

“No man is completely worthless.  You can

Always serve as a horrible example.”

He was also a man of faith and prayer.


At the end of his life, he stopped swearing.

He thanked God for his long, wonderful life.
