"...the world itself could not contain the books that would be written." Jn 21: 25 This morning we come to the end of one of the greatest books ever written! And wouldn't you think that John might be proud of it? But no! Look at the incredible humility of this man. John sees his book as just one in the 'pile' that would cover the whole earth if they could ever be written! Let's see what that means...

"Simon said to Him, 'Yes Lord, you know that I love you.' He said to him: 'Feed my lambs.'" Jn 21: 15 Isn't it amazing? One of history's greatest Christians was actually one who stumbled; who wavered! In fact, he was giving up ministry altogether to go back to his secular job! Oh, until He met the Savior once again! And then everything changed! 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

"Jesus said to him: 'Because you have seen me, you believe? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.'" Jn 20: 29 There was a direct correlation between Thomas' absence from that first gathering and the state of his heart. He was now a skeptic.  What he witnessed at the Cross had disillusioned him for good! But, oh!, God loves the skeptic!--Thomas' story is the proof of it--and if you're a skeptic too, you should know that He loves you as well.

"For still a little time, the light is yet with you. Walk while you have the light." Jn 12: 35 (literal) "A neglected opportunity never returns." So goes an ancient proverb. in our Scripture this morning, our Savior warns us of the same : while you have the light, get going! Get started!! Walk in the light, because darkness is coming, and opportunities do not linger!  Let's learn it well 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

"Jesus said to them: 'Unbind him, and let him go!'" Jn 11:44 "And death shall have no dominion," is the refrain from one of Dylan Thomas' poems, but--oh!--it's the wishful, desperate refrain of all the human race! Name even one culture that doesn't cry out against this tyranny and its bondage! Praise God! That tyranny and bondage brought our Savior into the world! Let's take a look...

"I AM the Resurrection, and the life. He who believes in me, though he die, yet he shall live." Jn 11: 25 Ever since the Fall, Man has been in the arena. The enemy confronting him, no man can defeat. In every nation, every culture, every language, the people of the earth lament that no man wins this battle against Death. But--oh!--praise God! You Savior has come to win that battle for you.

"I give them eternal life and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of my hand." Jn 10: 28 Last week we learned about the Shepherd's voice. This wee? The Shepherd's 'grip'! And praise God! What a comfort it is, because you are safe in that grip, dear lamb of the flock! Yes, safe forever!  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

"I am the Door If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved." Jn 10:9 "Such ones, for their bellies' sake, creep and intrude and climb into the fold." Good ol' Milton! Never was known to mince his words! (Lycidas line 114). And this morning--more sternly yet!--Jesus warns us: not everyone within the 'fold' has come with good intentions. Only those who used the Door!  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

"...you are of your father the Devil and the desires of your father, you want to do." Jn 8: 44 No passage of Scripture pertains more to our generation than this one. Jesus could have been speaking these words in Times Square! As Americans today, we smugly think that we're okay with God. After all 'We're a Christian nation', aren't we? We're all God's children.' Here Jesus is saying: "You're somebody's children anyway. But as for precisely whose, well, that depends on the 'likeness'."

"Therefore, if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed!" Jn 8:36 Americans today still boast in their liberty We're "the land of the free, the home of the brave"! But--hold on!--that was to be sung by a nation "under God". And to many Americans, freedom today means being under no one! So...are we still free? Jesus has something to say about this. Let's take a look...
