'He who believes in me, out of his heart shall flow rivers of living water." Jn 7: 38 This morning, Jesus offers the water of life to a spiritually thirsty world. But did you know, dear Christian, that that life-giving water will actually be coming through you? Oh, yes! Count on it! Like "rivers" it will flow! And you will be a blessing to all the world. 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

"So there was great division among the people because of Him." Jn 7: 43 From beginning to end, all through chapter 7, we see a great storm of controversy, with Jesus at the very center of it all. It still happens today! Let's face it: Jesus Christ draws a line in the sand! It's a line that divides the whole human race! And the great question today is: which side are you on?  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

"My teaching is not mine, but His who sent me." Jn 7: 16 This world has always been looking for Truth, and--oh!--in all the wrong places too! Our passage this morning actually addresses this issue, as the crowds express their amazement at the teachings of Jesus. Where did He get His grasp of the Truth? Oh!--what a relevant question 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

"He did not want to walk in Judea, because the Jews sought to kill Him." Jn 7:1 Here in chapter 7, on His way back to Judea, Jesus steps into a minefield. There is danger, opposition, hatred and discouragement in almost every verse of our text this morning. And--guess what?--it's the same field you and I must walk through. So...welcome to the army of the Cross! Let's dig in... Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA

"Then Jesus said to the Twelve: 'Do you also want to go away?'" Jn 6: 67 John Trapp puts it well: "No man stumbles alone, but is always drawing company along with him." Oh, how true! Here in this morning's text, as "many of His disciples" fall away, Jesus is concerned about that. What about you? Will you stay true, while much of the world defects? Oh! How blessed if you do!

"The Jews then complained about Him because He said: 'I am the Bread which came down from heaven.'" Jn 6: 41 How remarkable is Isaiah's prophecy of the coming of the Savior: "He shall be a sanctuary, but also a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense." Is 8:14 Well...which one is He? A sanctuary or a stumbling block? Oh, that will depend on you? We find the same issue here in our text this morning.  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

"...that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life, and I will raise him up on the last day." Jn 6: 40 "Show us the evidence," says most of the world, "Then we'll believe." Fair enough; and as a matter of fact, the evidence for Christ and His Resurrection is overwhelming. It keeps appearing, in fact, to this very day! Did you know? Let's take a look.

"I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to me shall never hunger." Jn 6: 35 A healthy appetite is one of the signs of physical well-being. And--oh!--how true even more so in the spiritual sense! Spiritual blessing and lasting fulfillment are promised to those who 'hunger' for the things of God. How about you? Does that include you? Then you are greatly blessed!

"...and then, by a great wind that was blowing, the sea awakened..." Jn 6: 18 (lit.) This morning, as His disciples head out to sea, alone, in the dark, against terrible headwinds, we learn that Jesus is the answer there too: when everything goes against us! How about you? Have you been facing 'headwinds' lately? Then this morning's message is especially for you!

It was Matthew Arnold who pointed out that "From first youth to extreme old age, the soul is tested."  Oh yes it is. In fact, it happens every day--all around us--in the circumstances of our lives. It was happening to the disciples that day the hungry crowd showed up! Let's see how they did...
