Sermons about Everlasting Life
At Calvary Temple we just wrapped up a week of minstering to the lives of over 600 children ages 2-11 through our annual Vacation Bible School. It takes approximately 200 volunteers and countless hours of preparation to pull this week off. Some people even schedule their summer vacation around this time so that they can minister to the children. Some might ask, "Why do you do that?" The answer is simple - we do this and so much more because of what we believe! We believe that JESUS is the only hope in this life and the only way to Heaven!
It Only Works if You Drink It John 4: 1-42 v.14 â€œWhosoever 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.â€ When we meet, is it present? How can we tell? Do first time attenders experience it? Can it be programmed into our gatherings? Where can I buy it ? If it doesnâ€™t show â€¦well, why not? WHAT is it anyhow? It is not unusual that we come to God on a regular basis, yet seldom seem to experience the thirst quenching relationship that we want and that should be ours. Either there is a problem with the water or we are not drinking it. Here is a woman that responds immediately and completely to a brief encounter with Jesus? She not only changes, but because of her response her city is changed. What did she do that we donâ€™t? 1. An awareness of and a willingness to address the thirst within. v.15 â€œSir give me this water that I may never thirst, nor come here to draw.â€ 2. A willingness to change priorities when confronted with a solution. v.28 â€œAnd the woman then left her water pot and went her wayâ€¦.â€ 3. A willingness of personal exposure for the sake of something greater. v.29 â€œCome and see a Man that told me all things that I ever did.â€ v.39 â€œAnd many of the Samaritans of that city believed in Him because of the word of the womanâ€¦.â€ A wise person chooses a destiny and accepts the road. A foolish person chooses a road and accepts the destiny.
