Read John 3:22-36.
As with Nicodemus, often, our problem is not so much conduct, as it is our condition. So, how can I make Christ great or number One in my life?
I. REALIZE ALL GOOD THINGS COME FROM HIM VERSE 27.
James 1:17, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”
John 15:5, “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.”
II. RECOGNIZE CHRIST MUST BE IN CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE VERSE 28.
That is, He must be on the Throne. John said, “He must increase, but I must decrease.”
III. REMEMBER ONLY HE CAN BRING JOY INTO YOUR LIFE VERSE 29.
IV. RECALL THAT ETERNAL LIFE COMES ONLY THROUGH HIM VERSES 31-36.
John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
1. He is above all verse 31.
2. His testimony is true verses 32-33.
3.He has power to save verses 34-35.
4. You must believe verse 36.
Where does He fit in, in your life? Is He great and number
