"The Jews then complained about Him because He said: 'I am the Bread which came down from heaven.'" Jn 6: 41 How remarkable is Isaiah's prophecy of the coming of the Savior: "He shall be a sanctuary, but also a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense." Is 8:14 Well...which one is He? A sanctuary or a stumbling block? Oh, that will depend on you? We find the same issue here in our text this morning.  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

"...that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life, and I will raise him up on the last day." Jn 6: 40 "Show us the evidence," says most of the world, "Then we'll believe." Fair enough; and as a matter of fact, the evidence for Christ and His Resurrection is overwhelming. It keeps appearing, in fact, to this very day! Did you know? Let's take a look.

"I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to me shall never hunger." Jn 6: 35 A healthy appetite is one of the signs of physical well-being. And--oh!--how true even more so in the spiritual sense! Spiritual blessing and lasting fulfillment are promised to those who 'hunger' for the things of God. How about you? Does that include you? Then you are greatly blessed!

"...and then, by a great wind that was blowing, the sea awakened..." Jn 6: 18 (lit.) This morning, as His disciples head out to sea, alone, in the dark, against terrible headwinds, we learn that Jesus is the answer there too: when everything goes against us! How about you? Have you been facing 'headwinds' lately? Then this morning's message is especially for you!

It was Matthew Arnold who pointed out that "From first youth to extreme old age, the soul is tested."  Oh yes it is. In fact, it happens every day--all around us--in the circumstances of our lives. It was happening to the disciples that day the hungry crowd showed up! Let's see how they did...

"These are they which testify of me..." Jn 5: 39 "None need be  believed who testify of themselves," is an old rabbinical saying from he Talmud. To this day that is jut good jurisprudence: a plurality of witnesses to try any case. But does it pertain to the Son of God? Did He need to observe it at all? How shocking that He did! 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 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!
