These are the times that we should seek God even the more. Our hearts, minds and souls should be craving the living God. In this episode, we learn that if this Samaritan woman knew who it was that gave the command for a drink, that she would have craved what he could give to her.
As we traverse this pilgrimage, there are many that we will encounter. Jesus met the Samaritan woman at Jacob's Well. This was a special place not only to the Samaritans but also to the Jews. He met her on "common ground". We must find the common ground as we look to meet and draw others to Him.
At time we feel that no one hears us. We feel rejected and tossed aside. We feel that we are not a part of anything or anyone. But this podcast assures us that we ARE accepted in the beloved.
A drink offering is never offered by itself. There must be a meat offering. In this episode, we learn that the disciples have gone to buy meat. Well, the Samaritan woman will provide the drink offering. We must always be prepared on our journey with the Lord, to provide the meat offering. Let's take a listen.
Today, in a world plagued by the COVID-19 disease and many other signs of our redemption drawing nigh, we the church need to recognize that God is not only calling the world to repentance but that he is starting with the house of God.
