"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!

"For you put up with fools gladly, since you yourselves are wise." 2 Cor 11: 19 NKJV False teachers and self-appointed "apostles" were taking over the church at Corinth. They came teaching heresies, distorting the Gospel, causing division and slandering the existing leadership. If left unchecked, they would run that church right into the ground. And the Christians at Corinth were just "putting up with it". How sad! Let's learn from this today...

"If someone comes and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached..." 2 Cor 11: 4 "Oh what a goodly outside falsehood has," one of Shakespeare's characters complains. How surprising to find that observation way back in Shakespeare's day. But Paul observed it even in his day! This is the age-old battle for the Truth, where falsehood comes disguised as 'goodness' and 'light'. Let's take a look.

"For Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regrets." 2 Cor 7: 10 NIV "Sorrow never comes too late and happiness too swiftly flies," is Thomas Gray's sad assessment of life. But isn't this Word of God refreshing? Not all sorrow is bad! Some sorrow is definitely needed; can't come soon enough, in fact! And you will never find true happiness without it. Let's dive in...

"Therefore we are ambassadors for Christ, God making His appeal through us." 2 Cor 5:20 ESV Isn't it amazing? Christ has His "ambassadors" in every corner of the world! And you, year Christian, are one of them; if you are faithful to your Savior. What does it mean to be an "ambassador"? Well, the answer to that question can be challenging, unnerving and--oh!--so richly rewarding!

"So then, we do not lose heart..." 2 For 4: 16 Judging by the great lengths to which Paul goes to explain his afflictions, it seems as if yet another accusation has been laid against him: "He suffers so much! Shouldn't a real Apostle be more victorious?" Oh, Paul's answer is wonderful for us all! Though afflictions abound, we need never lose heart!
