John 4, 31

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I.

Jesus found a great opportunity at the well–to lead a woman into the knowledge of the truth and through her to reach many in the village.  How his heart must have thrilled at it.  What a fine service it was!

II.

My meat to will of the Father.  He was sent “to seek and to save the that which was lost.”  The Father directed him daily and he pleased the Father.

III.

“Had to finish his work.”  Not that there was no more to do after he ascended, but to finish the work he gave me to do.  Well he is still working at it through the church.  In every age there is much to do.

IV.

We face a great work and it needs to be done.  Should we neglect it–the church of our day–God will seek elsewhere for someone to do it.

It is the Father’s cause–his work–and he calls us to do it for him.  It should be our meat to do it.
