 “Jesus, the Drink that Satisfies”

 

SCRIPTURE:   John 4    John 7:37-39   Psalms 16:11 

                        I Cor 10:4 (1-13)  Exodus 17:5-7  Num 21:17         

 

Woman at the well.  Samaria – an out of the way place.

  1. A  woman met her Messiah
  2. Messiah has come
  3. You need to meet Him!
  4. 4:10 – IF YOU KNEW THE GIFT OF GOD
  5. 4:18 – SIX HUSBANDS
  6. 4:25 – I KNOW MESSIAH IS COMING.
  7. 4:29 – COME SEE A MAN.  THAT’S OUR MESSAGE.

 

  1. Everyone has a thirst for Messiah
  2. When that need is not met, Humanity goes about to fulfill that need in its own way.
  3. The need is for intimacy.
  4. The need is to love and be loved.
  5. On a very deep and personal level
  6. Seeking for love in all the wrong places.
  7. Just because a person is a Christian it doesn’t mean they are drinking of Jesus like they should.
  8. They don’t know how!
  9. Numbers 21:17 tells us how.
    1. Sing to the well
    2. Miraculous happenings.

 

I CORINTHIANS 10:4 – They drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them and that Rock was Christ.

 

EXODUS 17:5-7 – Rephidim.  Moses stood on the Rock and smote it.  Water flowed out.

 

NUMBERS 21:17

  1. Instruction:  Gather
  2. Promise:  I will give drink
  3. Responsibility:  Sing
  4. Lesson:  Gather with God’s People.  Give God Thanks and Praise. 

 

THIRSTY PEOPLE:

Who are sinners?  They are people with a thirst!

The worst sinners make the best believers. They have a strong thirst for life.  Jesus:  He who is forgiven much, loveth much.

 

TRUTH:  God put us on this earth and He knows what we need.

MYTH:  God put us on this earth to figure it out by ourselves.  We don’t need God in the material world.

 

LUST AND SEXUAL PURSUITS are the flesh’s way of feeding on the glory of another person.  Through Christ, He redirects our affections to enjoy the intimacy of God’s love.

 

PSALMS 16:11 – In thy presence is fullness of joy.

 

JOHN 7:37-39 Jesus is the drink that satisfies.

The woman at the well found #7.  (Seven is the perfect number:  God’s number)
