MORNINGTIME 2888
 
Art thou greater THAN OUR FATHER JACOB, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water SHALL THIRST AGAIN: But whosoever drinketh of the Water THAT I SHALL GIVE HIM shall never thirst; but the water that I SHALL GIVE him shall be in him a well of water springing up into EVERLASTING LIFE. John 4: 12-14. This Lady knew that someday A Messiah would come, someday, maybe down the road, but someday He would come... That was a nice story told down through the years, and she remembered it. But he eyes were fixed on the reality of here and now, full of hopes, good luck, and superstitions of days gone by. Just by knowing a past great man drank from THIS well, AND HIS CATTLE, was very important to her. Like somehow his drinking from this worldly well would bless her. Then Christ comes along, AND GOD REMINDS HER OF HIS PROMISE TO SEND "THE MESSIAH", her Hopes are suddenly raised from worldly supply, to THE HEAVENLY ETERNAL SUPPLY. And she "Got Saved". Just like her, we do the same thing today. We know there will be a soon coming Saviour who will take us out of this world with all its trials and troubles, while death and destruction swirl on all around where we were, (the Rapture), AS WE LOOK TO THE THINGS THAT WILL TAKE CARE OF US UNTIL HE COMES. We have social security, welfare, a good paying job, a good stash in the bank, retirement, AND IF ANY ONE OF THESE "SUPPLIES" WERE SUDDENLY TAKEN AWAY, WE'D GO DOWN LIKE A HOUSE OF CARDS. Let's say that does happen, you're told that in 3 days every worldly thing you're counting on will be gone. You and your family will be totally homeless. What's your VERY FIRST thought? How to get even some of it back? Call a friend you can live with? Or do you all just sit down AND HAVE A TIME OF PRAYER AND THANKSGIVING FOR ALL THE LORD HAS, IS, AND WILL DO TO, AND FOR, YOU??? What A Way to Trust, Obey, and, Be Blessed!!!
