"...they departed from the presence of the Council rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for His Name." Acts 5: 41 This morning, we see God's mighty hand at work, keeping His church save, sound and fearless as ever! And that He will do for you too, dear faithful one! And for all His dear church! Let's take a look... Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA From the Pastors' Series: The Book of Acts: Dear Lovers of God

"...and when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled was shaken..." Acts 4: 31 As the world hangs heavy under the turmoil and the lawlessness, we are hearing it over and over: "I can't think of one happy thing." Oh, but we're Christians, dear ones! So how should we respond? Wouldn't you know? Our brave church in Acts 4 does it just right! Let's learn from them today.   Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne Orange CA From the Pastors' Series: The Book of Acts: Dear Lovers of God.

"Whether it is right, in the sight of God, to listen to you more than to God, you be the judge." Acts 4: 19 We continue our study of the 'brave Church': people so inspired and empowered that nothing was going to stop them now. Not that many wouldn't try! This morning, the 'authorities' tried to forbid them to even 'utter' the name of Jesus. What a laugh! Let's take a look... Message by Asst.

"...be saved from this crooked generation..." Acts 2: 40 Last week we listened to the very first sermon in the history of the Church. It was simple, concise and to the point. But more importantly, it 'pierced', as only something from the Spirit of God could do. So, how did that crowd of listeners respond? Oh that is the blessed subject of this morning's text.

"Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you and heed my words..." Acts 2: 14 This morning we come to the very first sermon ever preached by a Christian preacher. How remarkable, the man God chose to deliver it: the most broken, discouraged, defeated disciple of all the Eleven. But--my!--what a message! And what a transformation! That is the work of the Holy Spirit of God. Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne From the Pastors' Series: The Book of Acts: Dear Lover of God

"Suddenly, there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind."  Acts 2:2 The day was 'Pentecost', remembering when God first gave the Law to His people. But oh, on this Pentecost, He gave something so much greater! He have the Holy Spirit and a changed heart, and the power to live gods Law, not just obey, but live it; to live life God's way like never before. And that was going to change the whole world.

"...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

"When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his outer garment, for he had removed it, and plunged into the sea." Jn 21:7 This morning, we are catching Peter at his very lowest. He seems ready to give up his calling in Christ and go back to his fishing! Oh, but hold on! That's going to change! He's going to plunge in!

"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.
