The Faithfulness of Christ as Savior

I am beginning to work through the passion narratives in John’s Gospel here at our church, and have been moved a number of times already at the deep resolve of Jesus to fulfill the mission given to him by the Father before the world began  – to save all those who had been given to him. This purposeful march to the cross is never more evident than when “the hour” finally arrives, and Jesus is given over to be crucified. When things appear to be the most chaotic, Christ is faithfully going about the work of accomplishing our salvation: “shall I not drink the cup that my Father has given me?” Now that is a Savior.

I attempted to preach John 18:1-27 this past Sunday morning.
