Epic Encounter

  

For a lifetime the Samaritan woman had been satisfied with only quenching the thirst of the physical body. 

Then she met Jesus. He offered her water that would satisfy her soul. He offered her living water that would give her eternal life. She accepted, left her waterpot at the well, and went to take care of the most important matter first–telling others about her changed life because of Jesus.

Before accepting Jesus we may have been lulled into believing that we were here to live for this life and this life alone. Maybe we were completely satisfied with this. (Just as the Samaritan woman was completely satisfied with meeting only the needs of her flesh.)

But once we met Jesus, when He invited us to follow after Him–it was made known to us that this life paled in comparison to the eternal one. (The Samaritan woman realized this. She left her encounter with Jesus a changed woman with a vision to tend to the things of Christ before caring for the things of this present world.)

Which are you living for today? Are you living for this life alone or for are you living for a life of eternity with Christ?

John 4:6-30

Treasure Filled

  
The man stood gazing out into the field full of treasure. It could be his he was told. 

The man tried to wrap his mind around the proposal: someone had prepared a field full of treasure-just for him. His meager assets, in comparison, would be the only thing he would have to sacrifice to get it. The full price had already been paid. 

It was a no-brainer. Of course he would take the offer!

You are that man. Jesus has prepared the field for you. The treasure is eternal life in heaven. The price has been paid by Christ himself shedding his blood as a remission for our sin. All that’s asked of us is to give ourselves as a living sacrifice in return. 

If you’re still considering the offer, don’t waste another minute. 

If you’ve taken the proposal, wouldn’t you agree that it’s the best decision you’ve ever made? 🙂

God Prevails

1 John 2:17

II Chronicles 22: 10-12

Athaliah was power hungry. So obsessed with it that she set out to kill her own sons and grandsons in an attempt to prevent any of them from taking the kingdom from her.

She was almost successful except that her daughter had a strong desire too: seeing the Lord prevail. Jehoshabeath, wife of the priest Jehoidia rescued Joash from his own grandmother when he was only a baby. She hid him from his grandmother for 6 years. Then, in th 7th year Athaliah, the grandmother was slain and Jehoiada the priest placed the child, Joash, as the king.

The seed of David had been kept alive and reigned again.

No matter what scheem the devil may have in place, the one true, all powerful God always prevails.

Draw strength from the fact that God will be glorified….. he shall reign eternally….. and we shall be like him.
