"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.

"You shall see heaven open and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man." Jn 1: 51 Our Scripture  begins with a remarkable moment in the ministry of our Lord. Jesus with only two disciples! And those two, so far, knowing practically nothing! But, what a beginning! With this small beginning, heaven itself would one day be "open" for the ransom and rescue of all mankind!

"The voice of one crying in the wilderness: 'make straight the way of the Lord'." Jn 1: 23 John the Baptist was a remarkable man! Filled with the Spirit even before he was born! (Lk 1:41) Jesus insisted there'd been "no one greater". (Mt 11: 11) And yet you would never know it, listening to John speak! To him, Jesus was everything, and he himself ws only a 'voice'! What a perfect example of the true Christian! This morning, let's learn from this wonderful spokesman for Christ.   Message by Pastor Rod Schorr Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA From his series on the Gospel of John: Truth for a World in the Grip of a Lie

"The Word became flesh and dwelt among us." Jn 1: 14  There is no statement in all the Bible more important than this one: "the Word became flesh and dwelt among us." It is the fulfillment of everything said and done in the Old Testament. This was God's purpose ever since the Fall! And how wonderful to know that it was His purpose for you!  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

"...and the world did not know Him..." John 1: 10 There is no one in all the world more deluded than the agnostic, and no one in greater peril! At least the atheist knows he is taking an openly defiant position! But the agnostic? He clings to the notion of an "innocent ignorance". Our Scripture this morning makes it clear: there is really no such thing.  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.
