June 26, 2016

On Sunday May 15th, I visited our sister church, Avant, for church service.
The message came from Matthew 1:18-20 - v18 Now this is how Jesus the Messiah was born. His mother, Mary, was engaged to be married to Joseph. But while she was still a virgin, she became pregnant by the Holy Spirit. v19 Joseph, her fiance`, being a just man, decided to break the engagement quietly, so as not to disgrace her publicly.  v20 As he considered this, he fell asleep, and an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream. "Joseph, son of David," the angel said, "do not be afraid to go ahead with your marriage to Mary. For the child within her has been conceived by the Holy Spirit."

Acts 28:1-31; Romans 1:1-32
  • Paul on the Island of Malta, was bitten by a poisonous snake the the inhabitants thought he would die because they thought he was a murderer but Paul slung off the snake and the people were soon changed their minds. 
  • Paul Arrives at Rome and was permitted to have his own private lodgings although he was guarded by a soldier.
  • Paul preaches  at Rome but the most wanted to argue with him, so Paul told them to go (read verses 26 and 27)
  • Paul said that the salvation he was preaching about from God, was also available for the Gentiles.
  • In Romans chapter 1, Paul summarizes the Good News about Jesus Christ, who came as a human by natural descent, was part of the Jewish royal line through David, died and was raised from the dead and opened the door for God's grace and kindness to be poured out onto us. (From Life Application Study Bible)
John 4:4-9 - v4 He had to go through Samaria on the way. v5 Eventually he came to the Samaritan village of Sychar, near the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. v6 Jacob's well was there; and Jesus, tired from the long walk, sat wearily beside the well about noontime. v7 Soon a Samaritan woman came to draw water, and Jesus said to her, "Please give me a drink." v8 He was alone at the time because his disciples had gone into the village to buy some food. v9 The woman was surprised, for Jews refuse to have anything to do with Samaritans. She said to Jesus, "You are a Jew, and I am a Samaritan woman. Why are you asking me for a drink?"
Subject: "The Living Water"

  • Dehydration is a detriment, draining and can kill but water is a life saver.
  • Are we dried up Christians?
  • Jesus offers living water
  • Living water is never deadly to the soul.
There are two types of water
A. Water on earth offers
  •  temporary relief for the body
  • Naturally dug up
  • will thirst again
  • a substitute that will not satisfy for very long
B. Eternal Water (Life)
  • Supernatural
  • Heaven sent
  • For the soul
  • Offers eternal life
  • One will never thirst again
Consumption! Did the woman drink of the living water that Jesus offered? Yes! She left her bucket, went back to her village to tell about her experience and the villagers believed.
