Not a Jew. Not a man. Not even a godly woman! 'Come! See a man who told me everything I ever did! Could this be the Christ?'" Jn 4:29 That dear Samaritan woman! Who would have thought that she, of all people, would be history's first 'evangelist'! But she was! No sooner had she found Christ herself than she was telling the whole city about Him! What an example for us today! We should all be doing what she did that day!

"The woman said to Him: 'Sir! Give me this water!'" Jn 4: 15 How amazing! Jesus' last encounter was with on of Israel's finest: a Pharisee, a "teacher of Israel", a "ruler of the Jews"--Nicodemus. But here this morning: a nameless, disreputable Samaritan woman with a string of broken marriages behind her. But--oh!--Jesus loves her too! And He's going to change her life! Let's take a look.  Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA From his series: The Gospel of John: Truth for a World in the Grip of a Lie.

"He must increase, I must decrease." John 3: 30 In the Christian walk, is there anything more important than finishing well? What, after alll, will it mean if we don't? This morning we witness the final days of John the Baptist's great ministry. But--oh!--he finishes well! There's so much for us to learn today from this faithful, godly man! Let's get started...

"...men loved the darkness, rather than the light." Jn 3:19 We're in the final portion of Nicodemus' famous Night School season with Jesus, but--my!--what brutal honesty we find in this conclusion! And every unbeliever must reckon with it now!--that "people love the darkness, rather than the light." Let's make sure that doesn't include you!

"...whosoever..." Jn 3: 16 Martin Luther once called this verse "the heart of the Bible", "the Gospel in miniature", insisting that the entire story of the Bible is told within it. How true! This one verse contains everything you need to know to be free at last and live forever! And the wonderful thing is: it was written for you!

"As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up." Jn 3: 14 When Jesus spoke of a life "born again," "born of the Spirit", Nicodemus just had to ask: "How can these things be?" Well, Jesus is gong to answer that question, but--my!--what an answer! It somehow pertains to that ancient story of the snake in the wilderness--the snake on the pole! Let's take a look...

"...you must be born again..." Jn 3:3 It is possible to go through a lifetime of religious quest, searching for Truth, seeking the 'spiritual', hungering for moral and spiritual reform, and miss it all; never truly finding anything! That's where Nicodemus was headed, until he showed up that night at Jesus' door! Let's go there with him today...

"Jesus did not entrust Himself to them, because He knew all men..." Jn 2: 24 "The Humanist's view of life stands in awe of human potential," is the boast of Polly Toynbee, British journalist and champion of secular humanism. But this morning we encounter one person who doesn't quite share her 'awe': Jesus Christ, who "knew all men", and "knew what was there in Man." This morning, let's take a look from His perspective...

John 2: 13-22 "He made a whip of cords and drove them all out of the Temple..." Jn 2:15 This morning we come to another side of our precious Savior--one that is purposely and almost universally ignored today: His wrath. Although He is our gentle Shepherd, He is also God incarnate and therefore He is Holy and altogether righteous. he will make no compromise with wickedness.

"Jesus said to them: 'Fill the waterspouts with water.' And they filled them up to the brim." Jn 2:7 The wedding of Cana is the boundary line between the Old and the New. Just like that water in the old stone jars that was turned to wine, the old dispensation, with its old dead legalism and religious ceremonialism was being replaced--transformed!--into something new, alive and joyful. Let's see what that means for us today! Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA From his series: The Gospel of John: Truth for a World in the Grip of a Lie.
