John 4.16-26 Jesus Confronts The Sin of The Samaritan Woman

00:0000:00

John 4:16 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."

In this message we see the WOMAN, to whom no Jewish man would speak to, much less a Rabbi or Teacher and for sure not the Messiah, Savior of the World confronted by her sin. The high and mighty Nicodemus has come to Jesus and left unforgiven and unsaved, now the Lamb that takes away the sin of the world goes to this “despicable harlot” who has been married five times and now is living with another who is not her husband to confront her sin. It is amazing how the very people we think are not worthy of our attention or could never go to heaven are the very ones that Jesus goes to and are the same ones who do go to heaven because they see their need. How about you, whether you have sinned as much as this woman has or not doesn’t matter because we all need Jesus to forgive us and save us.

John 4.1-15 Jesus Must Go Through Samaria

00:0000:00

As we move into Chapter four we will see John show us another side of Jesus. So far he has pursued his disciples and been pursued by Nicodemus, a supposedly very righteous and influential man, now he will make sure He will have a divine appointment with this very unrighteous and shunned woman of Samaria. Just as Nicodemus did not understand what Jesus was trying to tell him, this woman will not get it either. It is amazing how simple the Gospel is, that a little child can understand and believe, yet a grown man or woman with great intelligence will not and cannot understand it. Have you come to that place yet where you believe? I hope so, if not by the time this message is over I pray you will understand the truth and truly believe Jesus is the Christ, God in human flesh and ask Him to forgive you and save you.

There Is A War Going On (Finding God’s Will For Our Life Part 4)

00:0000:00

Assorted Scriptures –This Message Is From The Series Finding God's Will For Our Life In this final message we will learn about two more steps to finding the will of God, seeking Godly counsel and God’s Providence. Both of these are crucial to finding the will of God for our life and the joy, peace, and fulfillment that comes from doing it. We will see that we are to seek Godly counsel from man, but God’s counsel is the one we seek first. Also, providence is that in which God is working all things together for good. Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to [His] purpose. When we put all six steps together and use them, we will have a good working knowledge of how to find God’s will for our lives. God Bless you as you seek to do His will and find out what your life is really supposed to be about.
