Come Thirsty Series

Well, I finished my first sermon series. It takes a lot of time and effort to get a good series together. I was surprised at the effort it took to stay within the bounds of a theme while not saying the same thing every week.

Of course, some things need to be said every day. Namely, that God loves us. Through bad and through good, God loves us.

Today's sermon was about knowing God's love is there even when we don't feel it...Namely in the storms of life. The Woman at the Well had lots of storms in her life, and when she encountered Christ, her life was much so that she even went out telling her story to others.

That is what I think the life of the Christian, or Christ follower, is.  We come thirsty.  We encounter Jesus.  Our lives overflow with that grace offering that love and healing to others.

May God quench your thirst and may you find your deepest hurts healed by the Living Waters of Christ Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit in the Love of God the Father.
