Have a Wonderful and Blessed Day!!! A Promise and A Prayer!!!
A Precious Promise;
John 4:13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
John 4:14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
John 4:15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.
Water that Soothes, Satisfies, Saves the Soul
Dehydration is one of the side-effects of not drinking enough water. Dehydration has proven to be dangerous to the body in that it can lead to dizziness, confusion, memory loss, weakness, fatigue, trembling, fainting and even death.
The most important benefit to drinking water is it soothes, satisfies and saves the soul. But not just any water….. Living Water that comes from Jesus Christ. He promises if we drink the water offered from him we will have eternal life. And just as a lack of water can be deadly to the body, never coming and drinking the Living Water is deadly to the soul.
Verse 3 tells us that Jesus and his disciples left Judea to go to Galilee by way of Samaria. They arrive at a city called Sychar in Samaria at a well of water that Jacob gave his son Joseph. Jesus being wearied of his travels stopped at this well around noon and a woman of Samaria came out to draw some water from the well. Not only does this lesson tell of the water of salvation; it tells us it is offered to all people. This woman would not be someone a Jewish man would talk to; she was from Samaria.
Heavenly Water is for the soul and is from God. The water she was drawing from the well was earthly water. It was water from a well Jacob dug and gave to his son Joseph.
The water Jesus was offering was heavenly water. It was for the soul. It came down from heaven.
Earthly water only satisfies the body temporarily.
Heavenly Water satisfies the soul eternally.
RESCUE THE PERISHING
Rescue the perishing, care for the dying,
Snatch them in pity from sin and the grave;
Weep o’er the erring one, lift up the fallen,
Tell them of Jesus, the mighty to save.
Rescue the perishing, care for the dying,
Jesus is merciful, Jesus will save.
Though they are slighting Him, still He is waiting,
Waiting the penitent child to receive;
Plead with them earnestly, plead with them gently;
He will forgive if they only believe.
Down in the human heart, crushed by the tempter,
Feelings lie buried that grace can restore;
Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness,
Chords that were broken will vibrate once more.
Rescue the perishing, duty demands it;
Strength for thy labor the Lord will provide;
Back to the narrow way patiently win them;
Tell the poor wand’rer a Savior has died.
A Precious Prayer;
Luke 1:11 And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense.
Luke 1:12 And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him.
Luke 1:13 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.
Luke 1:14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth.
Luke 1:15 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother’s womb.
Zacharias had been praying for a child a son. An angel appeared unto him and told him his pray was heard and will be answered. His pray was not answered but he was going to have a great son. His name will be John, and will be filled with the Holy Ghost.
Our God is so Good!!!!
PRAISE THE SAVIOR
Praise the Savior, ye who know Him!
Who can tell how much we owe Him?
Gladly let us render to Him
All we are and have.
Jesus is the name that charms us;
He for conflicts fits and arms us;
Nothing moves and nothing harms us
When we trust in Him.
Trust in Him, ye saints, forever;
He is faithful, changing never;
Neither force nor guile can sever
Those He loves from Him.
Keep us, Lord, oh, keep us cleaving
To Thyself and still believing,
Till the hour of Thy receiving
The victorious Bride.
Then we shall be where we would be;
Then we shall be what we should be;
Things which are not now, nor could be,
Then shall be our own.
Love and Prayers
