Rick’s Reflections- 9/9/2018


Today we are introduced to an example of God’s grace leading to a transformation from doubt to belief. The Samaritan woman in John 4 had a very questionable past but thru her interaction with Jesus she takes an unexpected step. She acknowledges Him as the Messiah and begins to tell others about Him.
We, like that lady, can sometimes miss the meaning of the metaphors the scripture gives us. Living water is pregnant with meaning. When we get it figured out it makes all the difference in the world.

The prophet Jeremiah reminds us that Israel had committed two sins. They had forsaken God who was the spring of living water and had dug their own cisterns.
(Jer. 2:13) Like them, we will find our own wells unable to hold water. It is faith in Christ that brings true life and satisfaction.
If your having doubts about God today I would ask you to work through them. Don’t allow them to keep you from seeking the truth. He wants to transform you!
