Day 4 - Stay with Jesus
Today’s Reading: John 4
(Please read John 4: 1 – 54 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog.)
Jesus told me that I need to stay closer to Him and spend more time with Him, especially in reading His Word. I felt quite sad when I heard a few people told me that my blog is too long and they have no time to read!
Actually my sharing is not so long but to read a chapter of Bible daily may be too long. Lots of people do not understand the need for the living water to be healthy and not die of thirst. Only staying with Jesus daily can quench our thirst!
As Neil Cole in his “Cultivating a Life for God” says, “The power…lies in the unleashing of God’s word into the lives of people. The Lord made it clear that the word of God is the seed of new life. Jesus says, “Now the parable is this: the seed is the word of God. And the seed in the good soil, these are the ones who have heard the word in an honest and good heart, and hold it fast, and bear fruit with perseverance(Luke 8: 11, 15).”
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank you for giving me your living water. Help me to stay with you more, to read your Word more that I can receive your living water to quench my thirst. And I can be able to ask more people to come to see you and stay with you just like the Samaritan woman. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
