Boldly Approaching the Throne of Grace (John 14:8-14)

IMG_0017On Sunday, February 28, 2016, Pastor Joe Troutman preached “Boldly Approaching the Throne of Grace” from John 14:8-14.

We may boldly approach God in prayer if we believe in Jesus Christ, the only Way to the Father, who promises to work through us.

1. The Unity of Father and Son (John 14:8-9)—God the Father shares the same divine nature as God the Son; God the Son, in his human nature—our Lord Jesus Christ—visibly reveals God the Father to everyone, not by his appearance, but by his words and his works.

2. Words and Works (John 14:10-11)— Jesus manifests the Father in his words and in his works because he was perfectly obedient to his Father in every way.

3. This I Will Do (John 14:12-14)— Believers will do greater works than the Lord Jesus because after Jesus’ physical resurrection, their preaching will result by the power of the Holy Spirit, in the spiritual resurrection of people from every nation. Our prayers to this end are according to his will, and will result in his working through us to do those greater works.
