"...he does not come into Judgment, but has passed from death into life." Jn 5: 23 Does anyone ever run p heir credit card, thinking somehow that they will never get a bill? How foolish to think so! But so much more foolish is this sad world we live in; compounding our debt with every choice we are, and blithely thinking we will never have to pay; there will never be a reckoning!

"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 man answered: 'Sir, I have no one to put me into the pool...'" Jn 5:7 This morning, yet another man delivered by a single word: 'Arise!' Remarkably, he never asked for help; didn't cry out for mercy or deliverance, and didn't even know who gave it when it came! Such is the awesome love of Christ that just invades the world of our suffering, when no one else can help!

"So the man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him and went his way." Jn 4:50 How different from he Samaritans of last week are these Galileans today, who welcome Jesus only  caused of His miracles. In Samaria, Jesus did not perform a single miracle, and yet they came streaming out to hear him--and believed His every word. And that's how you and I must be.

Not a Jew. Not a man. Not even a godly woman! 'Come! See a man who told me everything I ever did! Could this be the Christ?'" Jn 4:29 That dear Samaritan woman! Who would have thought that she, of all people, would be history's first 'evangelist'! But she was! No sooner had she found Christ herself than she was telling the whole city about Him! What an example for us today! We should all be doing what she did that day!

"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!

"...whosoever..." Jn 3: 16 Martin Luther once called this verse "the heart of the Bible", "the Gospel in miniature", insisting that the entire story of the Bible is told within it. How true! This one verse contains everything you need to know to be free at last and live forever! And the wonderful thing is: it was written for you!

"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...
