Samaritan Water

Jesus was becoming popular in Judea.

He knew the Pharisees were watching Him so He left Judea.  He comes upon a well in Related imageSychar: Jacob’s well.  A woman comes and Jesus speaks to her.  “Give me a drink.” Samaritans and Jews do not interact if avoidable.  Also, man to strange woman is touchy.  But Jesus loved this woman and knew He had the best gift to offer anyone.  He knew she would be receptive!

“How is it you, a Jew, talk to a Samaritan?” Jews have no dealings with Samaritans. “If you knew the gift of God and who I am, you would ask for living water.” Read more of this post

The Best of Handel


La, La, La

When your world is meaningless, you may sing “la, la, la.”  About Sam’s “messiah” go to the real one, Jesus, and we won’t have to sing “la, la, la” so much, I promise.

“2 For he grew up…like a root…”  I clearly see what we are waiting to celebrate right now: His coming as a baby and growing up as a normal Jewish boy. Read more of this post

He Shall Reign Forevermore!

Hear the Lion Roar!

The Lion of Judah is coming!


But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.”(Rev 5:5 NKJV)

Jesus is GOD!



The Magnificat

Mary’s time has been fulfilled. She will give birth to the Blessed One.  We celebrate now.

“Let it be according to your Word!”

The Magnificat was given for many reasons but one of those might be to reflect on what it means to have the Savior she nurtured.  How is He moving in you?  Is He moving as He did in Mary? What is He saying to you today?  Receive Him and be fulfilled in His love and grace this moment. He is waiting to give you these and more.
