The Christian Life
A Sermon on John 1:49-51
Nathanael answered him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!” Jesus answered him, “Because I said to you, ‘I saw you under the fig tree,’ do you believe? You will see greater things than these.” And he said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.” (ESV)
Nathaniel's confession; openness and simple honesty are all that are demanded by Christ; the Lord's promise of greater things; a personal knowledge of Him promised to all believers; growing in grace.
