If only you knew

Once Jesus asked a Samaritan woman water to quench His thirst as He was tired from His journey.

John 4:7-9;13-14 nkjv

A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give Me a drink.” For His disciples had gone away into the city to buy food.

Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, “How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?” For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.

Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.”

The woman’s tradition almost stood in the way of heeding to Jesus’ request, she had something she so valued and it took spending time with the Lord to let go and receive that which is far greater in value than what she holds dearly. The Samaritan woman’s precious possession was her tradition.

Jesus told her ‘If only she knew the person asking her for a drink’ she would have embraced what He the creator of all things can give.

Imagine meeting Jesus today like this woman, will you rather hold to your traditions than receive the abundance that He can supply.

Jesus needs us to release our traditions, our religion, our estranged believes and embrace the abundant riches that awaits us in His truth and love.

But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” I Cor. 2:9 nkjv

Receive grace to let go and embrace His truth the more.

Life

What really is Life about?

And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.
He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God. 1Jn 5 : 11-13 nkjv

Do you believe in Jesus the Son of God? If you do and have Him as your Lord, know that you have eternal life.

Whosoever believes in Jesus Christ have everlasting life Jn 3:16 nkjv.

Remain blessed.

The love of God

For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die.
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.Romans 5:7-8 nkjv

God’s love is so wonderful, it’s the kind of love that only God can give.
Even when you are His enemy, working in your mind against Him, all He does is love you.

Even though He knows you’re going to commit that wrong against Him, He just can’t help but love you.

He loves you because you are created in His image after His kind Gen. 1:26a kjv, not because you’re righteous nor perfect but because you’re His creation.

What will you do about God’s love? Remember even though you don’t love Him He still loves you.

Come share in this unending love of God through Jesus Christ today.

I have loved you with an everlasting love Jer.31:3 nkjv

Love, God’s way

Jesus in His days on earth, taught us to love without expecting to be loved in return, how so different is our love today compared to this teaching,

Matthew 5;

43“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’

44But I say to you,

love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,

45that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for

He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

46For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?

47 And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so?

48 Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect. nkjv

Some Questions to ponder on:

How do you love as a neighbor? Yes it’s so easy to love those nice, respectful neighbors but is that what love, God’s way is?

How about husband or wife do you love one another when you feel loved by each other?

Really this world will be a better place on our way to heaven at last if we can truly love God’s way.

Love is the Fulfillment of the law Romans 13:10b

Christ, as you accept and open your heart to Him today will birth this kind of love in you.

Shared with lots of love.

Be Still

Be Still and know that I am God Psalm 46:10

God reigns over all authority and power, He made all things and all Human.

No one has seen God at anytime but the proof that He exists and is in control of all things is undeniable.

How then can we know that He is God?

God intends for all Human to be in a relationship with Him, to hear Him for themselves and not just talk to or at Him when the need arises as it is common even with those that claim God least exists.

A relationship is only built with someone we at least know. Knowing God requires being Still like the psalmist says in the scripture above.

To be Still is leaving aside all prejudice, letting go of all traditions then desiring the revelation of God as one takes time to study His Word and in prayers.

Prayer is not a monologue with God but a dialogue and no prayer time is ordinary because the prayers of God’s children gets heaven’s attention Dan. 9:23.

God needs our Still heart and mind as He eagerly long to show Himself to us when we truly desire to seek Him from the heart. God still have favorites in the place of worship as of old, desire to be His favorite by understanding how He wants you to seek Him in fellowship today.

God is a friend that sticks closer than a brother Prov 18:24 and yet He is the Almighty.
