“I do not pray for the world, but for those whom You have given me.” Jn 17:9 This morning we have the rare privilege of ‘eavesdropping’ on a prayer between God the Son and God the Father! How staggeringly profound it is! Where is the preacher who could ‘expound’ this thing? But—oh, most wonderful of all!—His prayer was for you! Let’s scratch the surface together!

"In the world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world." Jn 16: 33 Sailors used to say that, when you sail through the Straits of Magellan, no matter which way you pointed your bow, the wind would be against you! How like those straits is our world today! And how wonderful to know the One who has 'overcome' it all! And, if you know Him, you will too!  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 will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned to joy." Jn 16:2 Here in our Scriptures this morning, we see it: what a merciful friend we have in Jesus! He is deeply moved by the worries and the tears and the sorrows of His disciples. He knows all about their painful thinking, and speaks peace and comfort to them because of it. Today, he will do the same 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

“If the world hates you, you know that it has hated me first.” Jn 15:18 It has to be one of the great mysteries of our world: its inexplicable, persistent animosity toward the Christian. This morning, Jesus explains some of that mystery, as He leaves yet more parting instructions to His disciples. And—oh!—how wonderfully empowering His words are for you!

"...and you are my friends if you do what I command you." Jn 15: 14 Let's face it: we are living in an increasingly 'friendless' world, as we stare into our screens and withdraw into our 'safe spaces'. What this sad and isolated human race needs is a friend; a true friend! And--oh, how wonderful!--Jsuus Christ is the One!  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 Vine, you are the branches." Jn 15: 5 How profound the loss that comes to those who sever themselves from God! That's what Jesus came to solve! He came to be the vine if you will be the 'branch':and with a 'connection' like this, you can't lose! 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 who believes in me, the works I do he will do also, and greater works than these..." Jn 14: 12 The life of the new believer in Christ is not a 'repair job'. It's not self-reform. There are no band-aids, stitches or slings; but total and thorough healing. There is no duct-tape, bondo, or superglue. No! It's a major renovation. Everything about it is new!

"Let not your heart be troubled...." Oh if ever there was a time for such advice, that night in the Upper Room was it! But...can we really do that? Do we have control over a 'troubled heart'? Oh you do, dear one! If you know Him, you can say 'goodbye' to the troubled heart!

"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another as I have loved you." Jn 13: 34 "All you need is love..." go the lyrics of Lennon and McCarthy. It's "what the world needs now", according to Mr. Bacharach. That's a wonderful sentiment, but just pointing out the need doesn't make it happen. Poets and philosophers have been doing that for centuries with no results...until...until Jesus came!

"...when Judas had gone out, Jesus said: 'Now the Son of Man is glorified...'" Jn 13:31 We are at the Last Supper in our Scripture this morning and what a dark night it is! A betrayal is underway. The betrayer has 'gone out' to set in motion our Savior's crucifixion. But how shocking what Jesus says of this moment: "Now the Son of Man is glorified..." What on earth did He mean?  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
