"I give them eternal life and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of my hand." Jn 10: 28 Last week we learned about the Shepherd's voice. This wee? The Shepherd's 'grip'! And praise God! What a comfort it is, because you are safe in that grip, dear lamb of the flock! Yes, safe forever!  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

"Other sheep have I, which are not of this fold. Them also must I bring and they will hear my voice." Jn 10: 16 Let's face it: we live in a world that is noisy with voices: the voices of the atheists, the voices of the skeptics, the voices of the reprobates, the voices of bigotry, greed, self-indulgence and temptation. How on earth will we ever make its through this world? Praise God! By tuning in to the Shepherd's voice. That's how!

"I am the Door If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved." Jn 10:9 "Such ones, for their bellies' sake, creep and intrude and climb into the fold." Good ol' Milton! Never was known to mince his words! (Lycidas line 114). And this morning--more sternly yet!--Jesus warns us: not everyone within the 'fold' has come with good intentions. Only those who used the Door!  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

"...but now you say 'We see', therefore your sin remains." Jn 9: 41 We come to the wonderful conclusion of this incident with the man born blind. Have you come to acknowledge that you were 'born blind' to? Oh then there's hope for you! It is the people who think they 'see'--that is: who think they're 'just fine'--who are in trouble.

"They answered him saying: 'You were completely born in sin, and now you are teaching us?'" Jn 9: 34 This morning we return to our story of the man born blind, only to discover that it is not only the eyes of this man that have been miraculously changed: this man is changed all over! Praise God! Get ready! He's going to preach to the Pharisees! He's preaching to the preachers! And fully qualified to do so, too!

"Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he should be born blind?" Jn 9: 2 The most remarkable thing about the Bible is that literally everything you read 'applies', applies to you in power, profound ways. And no other incident in all the Bible applies more than this one does: this story of the man born blind. Let's dig in and start applying now!

"Truly, truly I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM." Jn 8: 58 This morning as Jesus finishes His encounter with this gathering of any skeptics and critics, we learn the awesome truth: that Jesus Christ is truly God, co-eternal with the Father. He is, in fact, the great I AM. What does that mean for us? Oh, get ready to be blessed. God's Word never fails to do that!  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 are of your father the Devil and the desires of your father, you want to do." Jn 8: 44 No passage of Scripture pertains more to our generation than this one. Jesus could have been speaking these words in Times Square! As Americans today, we smugly think that we're okay with God. After all 'We're a Christian nation', aren't we? We're all God's children.' Here Jesus is saying: "You're somebody's children anyway. But as for precisely whose, well, that depends on the 'likeness'."

"Therefore, if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed!" Jn 8:36 Americans today still boast in their liberty We're "the land of the free, the home of the brave"! But--hold on!--that was to be sung by a nation "under God". And to many Americans, freedom today means being under no one! So...are we still free? Jesus has something to say about this. Let's take a look...

"I am going away and you will seek Me and will die in your sin..." Jn 8: 21 Americans today live under a great delusion: that "we have all the time in the world." That "nothing will ever change." It is actually a sign of the end times mentioned by Peter (2 Pet 3: 3-4). This morning, these adversaries of Jesus reveal the same mindset. And--oh!--does Jesus ever set them straight!  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
