Full · Joy · Obedience

the joy of full…

The disciples went to town to get food…
leaving Jesus tired and hungry by the well
while they were gone a Samaritan woman comes to the well…
Jesus reaches out to her for water…
she questions…
He questions…
and before you know it…
she’s seen the Messiah… and goes to tell others…

When the disciples returned they said to Him…

“Rabbi, eat.” But He said to them, 
“I have food to eat that you do not know about.”
So the disciples were saying to one another,
“No one brought Him anything to eat, did he?”
Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me
and to accomplish His work. …”
John 4:31-34 NASB
Jesus was full… from obeying His Father…
teaching the good news to the spiritually hungry…
This morning… after sitting around a table full of ladies…
all hungry for His Word…
and leading them… sharing stories with one another…
laughing… crying… witnessing…
I relate to Jesus…
I just felt full…
and what a joy to be full…
Obeying Him in a call to lead…
introduce others to the Word…
is a fulfilling joy…
Be full… do what He is calling you to…
share Him in Word and deed…
bless others with the good news…
When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy
and my heart’s delight, for I bear your name,
O Lord God Almighty.
Jeremiah 15:16
