Talking about apostle Paul

Apostle Paul’s conversion and his early Christian witness were greeted with skepticism and fear.

When he began preaching that Jesus is the Son of God, people said, “Is this not he who destroyed those who called on this name in Jerusalem, and has come here for that purpose?” (Acts 9:21)

Later when Paul went to Jerusalem and tried to join the disciples, they were afraid of him.

In years to come, Paul never ignored his past, but spoke of it as evidence of the mercy of God.

Like Paul, we don’t need to parade our failures or to pretend they didn’t happen.

Instead, we can thank the Lord that through His grace and power, our past is forgiven, our present is changed, and our future is bright with hope.

Our life is changed forever, and only Jesus can transform our life.

Discovering God’s Will

Often, we want to know right now, God’s will for our life.

We dream and talk about tomorrow, when our duty is for the present. Our duty is to do what God asks us to do today, and wait for Him to reveal the next step.

As we obey God today, we will be strengthened to take the next step and the next step. Eventually, we will learn to walk with God and discover His will for our life.

Never worry about tomorrow. What happens tomorrow is God’s business. You and I are to obey God’s Will today and leave the future to Him.

Psalm 37:23 said, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way.”

If we walk with God today, we will discover His will for our Tomorrow.

Jesus the Living Water

Jesus is the Living Water who satisfies our deepest needs.
One of Jesus’ most memorable conversations took place at a well where He asked a Samaritan woman for a drink of water (John 4:1-42).
It quickly progressed to a discussion of something more when Jesus said to her: “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life”
As a result of the conversation, the woman and many people in the village where she lived came to believe that Jesus was the Christ, the Savior of the world.
We can’t live without water. Nor can we truly live now or eternally without the living water we receive from knowing Jesus Christ as our Savior. And we can drink of His life-giving water today.
Only Jesus, the Living Water, can satisfy the thirsty soul.
