Bible Reading is on John 12:9-19.

Sermon Points
Following Jesus for the right and wrong reasons.

Main Point – Make sure that you follow Jesus because of who He is, not because of what you think He might give you.

1. Don’t follow Jesus only because of the worldly benefits you think He might provide for you.

2. Follow Jesus because of who He is – God’s Messiah and King.

a) Fulfilled prophecies prove that Jesus is God’s Messiah and King.
b) Jesus’ works of power prove that He is God’s Messiah and King.
c) Jesus’ control of His circumstances under the Father’s timetable proves that He is God’s Messiah and King.

3. You can oppose Jesus and succeed in the short run, but in the long run you will lose and He will win.

After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”
(Revelation 7:9-10, ESV)
