Are you thirsty? Come to the well!


A young lady (Brittany) sings this song called "Come to the well" at church and it speaks to me in a big way! Check it out here by the original artist Casting Crowns:

So what is it in life you are looking for to satisfy your thirst? Money, sex, drugs, relationships, hobbies, ect? There is only one thing in life that can satisfy our souls deepest desire....Jesus? Check these verses out:



John 4:5-29

New King James Version (NKJV)



5 So He came to a city of Samaria which is called Sychar, near the plot of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. 6 Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied from His journey, sat thus by the well. It was about the sixth hour.

7 A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give Me a drink.” 8 For His disciples had gone away into the city to buy food.

9 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.

10 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.”

11 The woman said to Him, “Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. Where then do You get that living water? 12 Are You greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank from it himself, as well as his sons and his livestock?”

13 Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”

15 The woman said to Him, “Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw.”

16 Jesus said to her, “Go, call your husband, and come here.”

17 The woman answered and said, “I have no husband.”

Jesus said to her, “You have well said, ‘I have no husband,’ 18 for you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; in that you spoke truly.”

19 The woman said to Him, “Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet. 20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship.”

21 Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father. 22 You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. 23 But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. 24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

25 The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (who is called Christ). “When He comes, He will tell us all things.”

26 Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am He.”

27 And at this point His disciples came, and they marveled that He talked with a woman; yet no one said, “What do You seek?” or, “Why are You talking with her?”

28 The woman then left her waterpot, went her way into the city, and said to the men, 29 “Come, see a Man who told me all things that I ever did. Could this be the Christ?”



My friend nothing in life will satisfy you like Jesus. Take it from someone who has tried many things to fill this void. God created us with a void that can only be filled by Jesus. Don't waste any more time on the things of the world, come to the well, come to Jesus.

Here Am I!


God calls each of us into service to Himself. The calls will be specific to each one of us. To me it may be to preach to another it may be to teach and yet to another it may be to administration only God knows what He will call each of us to. The question for each one of us this morning is will we answer the call? Here is a couple of folks who did:





Exodus 3:4

4 So when the Lord saw that he turned aside to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush and said, “Moses, Moses!”

And he said, “Here I am.”



Isaiah 6:8

8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying:



“Whom shall I send,

And who will go for Us?”

Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”



Each of these great men of the bible answered the call of God. While Moses took some convincing, Isaiah was a ready vessel once he repented of his sin. We are much the same aren't we? Some are called by God and jump in right away and serve, serve, serve! Then their are others who try to come up with all the excuses we can of why we can't serve God, but none of these excuses are good enough and we eventually get on board and serve. Then their are those who just won't serve at all. For those in this condition, a heart check is in order. If we have no desire to serve God we may not have God in our heart at all! This is a dangerous spot to be in! Eternity may be at stake!



So let me ask you this morning, have you told God "Here am I! Send me."? Remember these words from Jesus:



Matthew 16:24

Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.

The Bridge to Eternal life.

Over the next few days I am going to share the plan of salvation through a tract called God's bridge to eternal life. This is the best tract I have ever used. It is simple and clear to understand. My prayer is if you have never considered Jesus as your Lord and Savior that you will. If you have already asked Jesus to be Lord of your life then use this to share Jesus with others. Feel free to ask any questions. The tract is sold at Majestic Media and is developed by Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary.



The first thing we must understand is we all have a purpose and we were designed by God for three things seen here:



The first purpose we are designed for is to Honor God! After all He is the Creator of all! Do you honor God with your life? The way that you live, is it pleasing to God?

The second purpose is to serve God. God has given all of abilities, talents, and gifts to use in serving Him. Are you serving God?

The third purpose we were designed for is to have fellowship with God. Did you know that? God wants us to talk with Him and allow Him to talk back to us. The three primary ways to fellowship with God are prayer, reading your bible, being still and allowing God to talk to you!

Look at that verse again Revelation 4:11:

Revelation 4:11

11 “You are worthy, O Lord,

To receive glory and honor and power;

For You created all things,

And by Your will they exist and were created.”

God is worthy to receive honor, service, and fellowship from us for that is why were created!



Sadly we have a problem! Something destroyed this relationship God had prepared for us to have with Him. Tomorrow we will look at that problem!

God's Bridge to eternal Life #2


Yesterday we talked about the purposes God has designed us for but we ended stating that we have a problem. That problem has destroyed our perfect relationship with God. What is that problem? We shall see that problem here:







SIN! is our problem. Since the fall of man with Adam and Eve in the garden eating the forbidden fruit that God said "Do Not Eat" sin has been our problem. Sin is doing what God has commanded us not to do. Or sin can be not doing what God has told us to do! Basically not obeying God's Word. We ALL have sinned! As the verse in Roman's has told us:



Romans 3:23

23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,



Now on this picture we see what sin has caused:







When we are sinners it causes a separation between us and God. God is Righteous, Holy, sinless, and Just. God can not dwell with sin in heaven. So we can not dwell with God in heaven with sin in our lives. Sin has an enormous penalty. We will talk about that penalty tomorrow.



If you have any questions so far, please ask!



Tom

God's Bridge to Eternal life. #4


Our last time together, we ended with the thought that man has come up with many ways that they think can get them to heaven with God. All these thoughts are wrong as we shall see!







Make sure you understand this point that the Proverbs 14:12 verse says:



Proverbs 14:12





12 There is a way which seems right to a man,

But its end is the way of death.



Man has lots of ideas of how to get to heaven, but only the bible has the truth. It is God's Word!



So let's look at the next picture as again it shows what is happening:







We now see in this picture some of man's attempts to get to God.



First, we see Good works. You can not do enough works in your life to cover your sin before God. It is impossible. As you see that bridge comes up short!



Second, you see religion. Man thinks because he goes to a certain church, or reads his holy book, or says he is a member of such and such church, that this will get him to heaven. Once again this is false as you see that bridge does not get you to heaven either.



Third, you see money. Money can not get you to God either. You can't buy your way into heaven and do enough good with your money to get to heaven. It also comes up short.



Fourth, you see morality. No one is good enough before God to get to heaven. You may be nice, thoughtful, a sharer of your goods, honest, and the list can go on and on. These are good but they will not get you to heaven with God.



They all come up short and you will spend eternity in hell if you are depending on these to get you to heaven as well as any other attempt by man! Look at this verse for proof:



Ephesians 2:8-9



8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; 9 not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.



So the next question we must ask is "what must happen for one to get to heaven with God?". We will see that in our next lesson.



Tom

Matthew's health (0 seizures in 13 months!) appears to be really good! In 4 prior years he never went more than 3 months without a mild and 7/8 months without a severe seizure so, it appears the surgery has surely improved his condition. Jacob graduates this year, and while still a little outspoken & mouthy, is a Great kid \:\) He's planning to work this summer and start Jackson State in the Fall. Wife is fine - keeping me in line ;\) however this week has been a tad tough \:\) but the good Lord saw fit for me to go another day instead of during this mess.. Sure hope youe crew is doing well!! http://www.tndeer.com/tndeertalk/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=3144595&page=1#Post3144595
