Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.
The Lord showed up in this woman's life when she was just about her daily chores. She wasn't seeking Him. He changed, not only her day, but her life and her place in the world.
First, for ourselves, let's recognize that God can show up in a situation or circumstance without us even expecting Him to; although, in faith, we always should be. He can, with one word, swiftlt change all of our positions in the world and place in life.
Thinking toward others, we acknowledge that He, through us, may show up in the midst of someone else's mundane day, to afford them the same change and transformation as the Samaritan woman at Jacob's well. We should be ready for that to happen.
God recently did this with us. We were serving. We were working. We were doing life. Suddenly, he provided a fresh direction; a new path ~ a fork in the road. We are so grateful for the opportunities He has afforded us through great ministries along the way; and there were many.
But we are particularly excited about what He is doing, and will do, with us, through Worship Church. We are active in several different campuses, several days a week. It's home missions for us. We are honored by His Grace to continue with what He has placed in our hands to do. And we do not consider it lightly the tasks that lie before us.
In His Presence is fullness of joy!
