MURP 0089: Pleasing People, Pleasing God

Join Pastor Otte and Messiah’s Upper Room Bible Class as we continue our journey through the book of John. This week we complete Chapter Five with a discussion on what it means to be a people pleaser, to be self-pleasing, and why, in our efforts to do what is pleasing God, we may end up displeasing others.

The class then jumps into Chapter Six of John where Jesus performs the miracle of feeding the 5000, and how we as humans may take a more limited viewpoint and look at the practical capabilities in life. The class compares that against God’s unlimited viewpoint and limitless possibilities God can accomplish.
