For God’s sake!

After Jesus had witnessed to the woman at the well she ran back to the town and asked the townspeople, “Could this be the Christ?”

What if the disciples had taken out of context what Jesus was trying to tell them as the Samaritan woman came back down the road leading the rest of the town out to meet Him?

Jesus said, “Even now the fields are ripe for harvest.”  I can just picture Jesus sweeping his hand towards the people as they walked ran towards Him.  But what if the disciples, in their dullness, looked past the people to the actual fields surrounding the well and said, “Oh, let’s go out and hoe a row today?”

Where would the Christian church be if everyone were out harvesting the physical fields, and not the spiritual?  There would be no disciples.  There would be no converts.  There would be no reason for Jesus.

Hmmm.  That makes me think it must have been God working in these men to bring about His plan, because man, in his sinful fallen state, is too stupid to “get it” on his own.  We must have understanding given to us.

If you don’t know Jesus, pray that He will show you Himself.  Please!  For God’s sake!

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
