Not Now But Later

Passage: John 13:31-38

Speaker: Pastor Scott Stephan

John 13:31-38
  
             Not Now, But Later
 
 
 
 

“Where I am going, you cannot come.” Jesus

“Lord where are you going?” Peter

“Where I am going, you cannot follow now, but you will later.” Jesus

“Why can’t I follow, I’ll lay my life down for you.” Peter

“Really? I tell you the truth...you will disown me three times.” Jesus

 
Observations:
1) The danger of an over-inflated sense of self-confidence
  1. Romans 12:3
  2. 1 Corinthians 10:12
 
2) The danger of an under-inflated sense of God-confidence
  1. Exodus 4:10
 
3) The temptation to skip vs. 34-35
  1. The two greatest commandments
 
The Question:
 
Why later but not now? What has to happen between now and later?
