So this has been something huge for me that I’ve been taught so much about being careful about the fountain you drink from!
I want to share a little bit with you!
When I think of a fountain I think of the Women at the well and how she spoke with Jesus but didn’t know she was speaking with Jesus.. actually let’s read it together!
“Wearied by his long journey, he sat on the edge of Jacob’s well. He sent his disciples into the village to buy food, for it was already afternoon. Soon a Samaritan woman came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give me a drink of water.”
Surprised, she said, “Why would a Jewish man ask a Samaritan woman for a drink of water?” Jesus replied, “If you only knew who I am and the gift that God wants to give you—you’d ask me for a drink, and I would give to you living water.”
The woman replied, “But sir, you don’t even have a bucket and this well is very deep. So where do you find this ‘living water’? Do you really think that you are greater than our ancestor Jacob who dug this well and drank from it himself, along with his children and livestock?”
Jesus answered, “If you drink from Jacob’s well you’ll be thirsty again and again, but if anyone drinks the living water I give them, they will never thirst again and will be forever satisfied! For when you drink the water I give you it becomes a gushing fountain of the Holy Spirit, springing up and flooding you with endless life!” The woman replied, “Let me drink that water so I’ll never be thirsty again and won’t have to come back here to draw water.” Jesus said, “Go get your husband and bring him back here.””
John 4:6-16 TPT
Okay guys so as we just read this morning the fountain Jesus was talking about himself right? Come and drink from him and there will be a never ending springing well that’s what we can process after we have a covenant with God! It all start with
Me + Jesus = everything else
You + Jesus = everything else!
My dad who is also my Pastor shared with my family.. “many know enough of the word to know, but not enough to enjoy their life with Jesus”
So I ask again what fountain are you drinking from? We can be going to all these sources but God has called us to a specific place with him a specific church to dwell and allow the roots to be flourished and watered constantly!
Here a few questions to see what fountain you drink from?
What church are you attending?
Are you serving? Or do you only serve when you know you’ll be seen?
Do you know the spirit of your church?
So many times we distract ourselves with so many different ministries and we get excited what everyone else is doing and here God is waiting to show you like hey I have so much for your life come and just be with me I’ll water those roots!
Do you let your roots just slightly get wet or have they been hidden and rooted in the water of life ready to flourish?
Do you drink the fountain of Jesus and protect yourself with his word and guard yourself from being that sheep that just keeps going out?
He will always be the good shepherd or your life but he wants to come in and be every other name in the Bible for you as well! Can you let him be more to you!
It all starts in your garden go back and dwell in that tent with him today!
We have a conquest and the key for me is what I have with Jesus I would never trade for anything but I don’t keep it I share it and evangelism isn’t hard for me because I’m telling my story this how much I love him and I’ve activated the power of the Holy Spirit on my life so I can keep going and going because the fire in me and on me! Jesus told the women at the well “For when you drink the water I give you it becomes a gushing fountain of the Holy Spirit, springing up and flooding you with endless life!”
This is what he wants to do with your life!!!!!!!
