Last Sunday morning we looked at a couple of questions Jesus asked Peter:
Do you love me?
What’s it to you?
These questions took Peter, and they take us, to the motives that Jesus puts at the heart of our ministry.
This morning we again ask the question of motives, only this time we step back and look at the motives of John, the author of the Gospel, as he wrote. What was John’s motive in writing this Gospel account? What did John want to see happen in the lives of those who hear and read this story?
In particular, why did John write the way he wrote and why did he include the specific things he included?
Sometimes seeing is believing.
Sometimes we believe without seeing.
And sometimes someone else’s seeing can lead to our believing!
