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 will disown me three times.” Jesus

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?
