The Temporary Believer
A Sermon on John 2:23-25
Jesus Knows What Is in Man
Now when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast, many believed in his name when they saw the signs that he was doing. But Jesus on his part did not entrust himself to them, because he knew all people and needed no one to bear witness about man, for he himself knew what was in man. (ESV)
Belief through signs is defective; true faith founded on God's Word; the marks of the temporary believer; credulity and true faith compared; three examples of partial belief; examine yourself.
