"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!

"These are they which testify of me..." Jn 5: 39 "None need be  believed who testify of themselves," is an old rabbinical saying from he Talmud. To this day that is jut good jurisprudence: a plurality of witnesses to try any case. But does it pertain to the Son of God? Did He need to observe it at all? How shocking that He did!

"He who does not honor the Son, does not honor the Father who sent Him." Jn 5: 23 Christ's adversaries all had one thing in common: they considered themselves deeply religious; claiming to obey God and honor God. But, of course, they didn't want Christ! Still don't today. Jesus is making it perfectly clear this morning: rejection of Him is rejection of God.  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

"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!

"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.

"John saw Jesus coming and said: 'Behold the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world.'" Jn 1: 23 NKJV It might be the most remarkable statement in the entire Bible. And how astonishing that John knew this, the moment he saw Jesus, when all the rest of the world could not see it--disciples included! Jesus had come to be the sacrificial lamb that takes away the is of the world.  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 will most gladly spend and be spent for your souls..." 2 Cor 12: 14 I love Charles Spurgeon's advice to his students on the subject of winning souls: "Do not enter this ministry if you can help it. If any student in this room could be content to be a newspaper editor, or a grocer, or a farmer, or a doctor, or a lawyer or a senator, or a king, in the name of heaven and earth let him go his way, his is not the man God has chosen." Oh yes! The soul-winner! A profession more kingly than kingship itself. And the great news is that you, dear Christian, already qualify! Let's take a look...

"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." 2 Cor 12:9 ESV How thoroughly "unDarwinian" is the Christian! His Scriptures teach the "survival of the weakest", not the "fittest"; and that, with every wound, scar or infirmity, God's strength is perfected, God's strength prevails! No one understood this better than Paul. But this morning, let's make sure we learn it too!
