Sunday Evening Sermon: The Lamb of God who Heals the Lame | John 5:1-9 | Anthony Vance
One man was there who had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had already been there a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to be healed?” The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no one to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up, and while I am going another steps down before me.” Jesus said to him, “Get up, take up your bed, and walk.” And at once the man was healed, and he took up his bed and walked. -John 5:5-9

This miracle was 38 years in the making. Don’t give up on praying for your loved ones. God is able–in a moment, in an instant–to save a lost man’s soul.

Sunday Evening Sermon: Genuine Faith | John 4:46-54 | Anthony Vance
“The father knew that was the hour when Jesus had said to him, “Your son will live.” And he himself believed, and all his household.” -John 4:53

The greatest demonstration of the nobleman’s faith was that he didn’t just believe, but wanted others to believe also. Oh that God would grant households of faith. Go and tell them what He has done!

“and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.” -Ephesians 6:19-20

I want to be more concerned about my neighbor’s eternal condemnation in hell than I am about my own embarrassment in telling him about it. -Burk Parsons via Twitter

Sunday Evening Sermon: God’s Providence in Evangelism | John 4:1-10 | Anthony Vance
“Now when Jesus learned that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus was making and baptizing more disciples than John (although Jesus Himself did not baptize, but only His disciples), He left Judea and departed again for Galilee. And He had to pass through Samaria. So He came to a town of Samaria called Sychar, near the field that Jacob had given to his son Joseph. Jacob’s well was there; so Jesus, wearied as He was from his journey, was sitting beside the well. It was about the sixth hour.” -John 4:1-6

God is able to use ordinary circumstances to bring about extraordinary conversations that could lead to miraculous conversions.

Scripture at Sunrise 10.12.2016

“but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” -John 4:14

If we desire to be good evangelists, we must look to the Master as our example. It all begins with how we look at people.
All people have the same need. All people have the same Gospel. All people (in Adam) have the same standing with God. All people have the same need for grace.

Scripture at Sunrise 7.13.2016

“Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” -John 3:7-8

We can’t predict the new birth. This should humble us. This should encourage us. For every hopeless person in our lives, we should be encouraged that the wind of God could blow on them at any moment. Pray. Love. Preach. Live. -excerpts from Anthony Vance’s Sunday Evening Sermon

Scripture at Sunrise 4.18.2016

The Calling of Nathanael [audio]| John 1:43-51 | Anthony Vance
Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found him of whom Moses in the Law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.” -John 1:45-46

God used a mixture of means to draw Nathanael to faith in Christ, including an immature witness by Philip. God has drawn many a straight line with crooked sticks!

Scripture at Sunrise 4.6.2016

“The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, ‘Follow Me.’ Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.” -John 1:43-44

Who’s your Philip? And will you take him to the throne of grace, knowing that Philip’s only hope is Jesus? And will you ask Jesus to go find Philip–to call him and make him His own? -Anthony Vance

Sunday Evening Sermon Audio: He Brought Him to Jesus | John 1:40-42 | Pastor Anthony Vance
“He brought him to Jesus.” -John 1:42

Andrew demonstrated the priority of genuine discipleship and started with his family. He introduced his brother Peter to Jesus. Peter became a more prominent, public figure, but Andrew–through his private testimony–was used to bring him to Christ.

We may never be a Peter, but may we always be an Andrew!

Sunday Evening | The Right Ambition of a Faithful Witness | John 1:35-42 | Pastor Anthony Vance
The next day again John was standing with two of his disciples, and he looked at Jesus as he walked by and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God!” The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus. -John 1:35-37

We are mistaken if we thing our goal is only to witness to sinners. Our ambition when we share the Gospel is for God to save sinners.
