Chapters 11-15: Jesus Unfiltered, Volume 3, “Love”

Question: What does loving God really mean?
Find  The Answer: John 11

1). A problem is brought to Jesus

John 11:1-3
Verse 1 Now a man named Lazarus was sick. He was from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. 2 [This Mary, whose brother Lazarus now lay sick, was the same one who
poured perfume on the Lord and wiped His feet with her hair.” 3 So the sisters sent word to
Jesus, “Lord the one You love is sick.”

Application 1: Love trusts Jesus in __difficult __ __times__,
(even when we are afraid).

2). Jesus responds to the problem

John 11:4-6
Verse 4 When He heard this, Jesus said, “This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God’s
glory so that God’s Son may be glorified through it.” 5 Now Jesus loved Martha and her
sister and Lazarus. 6 So when He heard that Lazarus was sick, He stayed where He was two
more days…

Application 2: Love trusts God’s __timing__, (even when it doesn’t
make sense).

Chip shares personal experience – God’s timing is not out timing.
IS. 55:12)

3). Jesus announces His plan to solve the problem

John 11:7-16
Verse 7…and then He said to His disciples, “Let us go back to Judea.” 8 “But Rabbi,” they said, “a
short while ago the Jews there tried to stone You, and yet You are going back?” 9 Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours of daylight? Anyone who walks in the daytime will not stumble, for they see by this world’s light. 10 It is when a person walks at night that they stumble, for they have no light.” 11 After He had said this, He went on to tell them, “Our friend
Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I am going there to wake him up.”
12 His disciples replied, “Lord, if he sleeps, he will get better.” 13 Jesus had been speaking of his death, but His disciples thought He meant natural sleep. 14 So then He told them plainly, “Lazarus is dead,
15 and for your sake, I am glad I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him.”
16 Then Thomas (also known as Didymus) said to the rest of the disciples, “Let us also go,
that we may die with Him.”

Application 3: Love trusts Jesus’ __PLAN___, (even when our security is threatened).

4). Jesus’ better gift to Martha and Mary

John 11:17-37
17 On His arrival, Jesus found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb for four days.
18 Now Bethany was less than two miles from Jerusalem, 19 and many Jews had come to
Martha and Mary to comfort them in the loss of their brother. 20 When Martha heard that
Jesus was coming, she went out to meet Him, but Mary stayed at home. 21 “Lord,” Martha
said to Jesus, “if You had been here, my brother would not have died.

22 But I know that
even now God will give You whatever you ask.”23 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise
again.” 24 Martha answered, “I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”
25 Jesus
said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in Me will live, even
though they die; 26 and whoever lives by believing in Me will never die. Do you believe this?”
27 “Yes, Lord,” she replied, “I believe that You are the Messiah, the Son of God, who is to
come into the world.”
28 After she had said this, she went back and called her sister Mary
aside. “The Teacher is here,” she said, “and is asking for you.” 29 When Mary heard this, she
got up quickly and went to Him.
30 Now Jesus had not yet entered the village, but was still at
the place where Martha had met Him.
31 When the Jews who had been with Mary in the
house, comforting her, noticed how quickly she got up and went out, they followed her,
supposing she was going to the tomb to mourn there.
32 When Mary reached the place where Jesus was and saw Him, she fell at His feet and
said, “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died.”
33 When Jesus saw her
weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, He was deeply moved
in spirit and troubled. 34 “Where have you laid him?” He asked. “Come and see, Lord,” they
35 Jesus wept.
36 Then the Jews said, “See how He loved him!”
37 But some of
them said, “Could not He who opened the eyes of the blind man have kept this man from

Application 4: Love trusts God’s _purposes _, (even when we feel

5). Jesus solves the problem

John 11:38-44
38 Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across
the entrance. 39 “Take away the stone,” He said. “But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the
dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.”
40 Then Jesus
said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”
41 So they took
away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard
42 I knew that You always hear Me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing
here, that they may believe that You sent Me.”
43 When He had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” 44 The dead
man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face.
Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.”

Application 5: Love trusts God’s __word_, (even when it seems

6). Epilogue

John 11:45-48
45 Therefore many of the Jews who had come to visit Mary, and had seen what Jesus did,
believed in Him.
46 But some of them went to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had
done. 47 Then the chief priests and the Pharisees called a meeting of the Sanhedrin.
“What are we accomplishing?” they asked. “Here is this man performing many signs. 48 If we
let Him go on like this, everyone will believe in Him, and then the Romans will come and
take away both our temple and our nation.”

Application 6: Love trusts Jesus with life’s __outcomes__, (even when
they result in conflict).

Discussion Questions:
1. Which of the applications address your current life situation? Why?
2. What is the relationship between love and trust?

Introduction: Life’s most important words are…
🔸When a child hears them, it means “I’m safe,” “I’m valuable,” “I really matter to you.”
🔸When you’re dating someone and hear them, it means “we’re moving to a new level
of commitment,” “exclusivity of a relationship.”
🔸When a friend hears them, it means “I’m here for you,” “I’ve got your back.” It’s a
statement of loyalty and resolve.
🔸When a parent hears them, their heart melts, their joy surges as little children, or
grown ones, say, “I see what you do for me; I appreciate you.”
🔸When Jesus says them to you, it means “You’re wanted, valuable, precious, and
I will never leave or forsake you.”
🔸When Jesus hears you say, “I love You,” it means…

Question: What does loving God really look like?

Answer: John 12

The Context:
This chapter chronicles the beginning of the last week of Jesus’ life prior to the
crucifixion. The resurrection of Lazarus has ignited a movement of Jews believing Him
to be the Messiah, while the religious leaders have become desperate to have Lazarus
and Him killed.
Jerusalem is simultaneously being flooded with thousands of foreign pilgrims to
celebrate the Passover. Three specific events will teach us what it means to love God
with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength:

Event #1: Mary expresses her love for Jesus John 12:1-8

why did you give it?

loving? (see Matthew 6:19-21)

3. In what ways did the multitudes publicly identify with and worship Jesus? What
social or personal price were they risking in giving this praise publicly?

4. In what ways do you publicly identify and proclaim Christ as King of your life? Have
you already taken the public step of baptism Jesus commanded? If “yes,” what
significance did that have in your life? If “no,” when do you plan on doing it?

5. Read John 12:24 and discuss what this means in your life right now and why.

A Tool to “Sync” with Jesus Daily

Step 1: Select a regular, consistent time each day

Step 2: Ask God to speak to you through His Word.

Step 3: Read the next portion in the scripture you’ve chosen.
(Old Testament, New Testament, or both)

Step 4: In a spiral notebook, write the date and then the word “YESTERDAY.”
Then write no more than one page about your thoughts, reflections, and
feelings about yesterday’s event and journey with Jesus. After that, write
any thoughts about your reading today.

Prayer Journal
For everyone it will look as different as each person looks different.

Step 5: Adoration – Praise God for who He is, His character, His power,
attributes, and especially anything you read about Him earlier.
Sing a chorus or hymn of praise.
Confession – Ask God to reveal anything that does not honor or glorify
Him in your life. Sit quietly and allow Him to bring specific things to mind.
Confess specifics NOT generalities.
Thanksgiving – Verbalize your thankfulness for specific things, events,
people, blessings, and answers to prayer God has granted in your life.
Supplication – Ask God specific requests for yourself and others that you
know are His will or that you simply desire.

Step 6: Listen – Be absolutely quiet before God and ask Him to show you…
🔸What is the “next step” in your relationship with Him?
🔸What is the “next step” in developing your character?
🔸What is the “next step” in developing your relationships?
🔸What is the “next step” in serving others?

“But I will send you the Advocate —the Spirit of truth. He will come to you from the Father and will testify all about me. And you must also testify about me because you have been with me from the beginning of my ministry.
