Jesus Flees An Earthly Crown

This is my sermon from Wednesday, April 2nd.  It is the final sermon from the first section of John 6, which deals with Christ’s feeding of the 5,000.  This message concentrates particularly on the desire of the enthralled crowd to take Jesus by force and make Him a king, and His rejection of that earthly honor.  Much of the church has failed throughout the ages by attempting to wed the church with the civil state, an error far afield from the example Christ set in this passage.
