Good morning! Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Today we are testing ourselves with God's definition of told.
John 4v39 Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman's testimony, "He told me everything I ever did."
We all need to get to a relationship with Jesus where He tells us everything we ever did. I do not mean the great and wonderful things we do and leave out the truth, then we are not worshiping in Spirit and truth. We have to face the truth in who we are without Him before He can make us who we truly are with Him. The good and the bad we are before Him has to be cut out of us through repenting before He will be willing to go in and live in us. Then what He puts in, the gifts of the Spirit, will flow out of us like rivers of living water. We will see the fields and see the seed we have planted and reap the Harvest or others will reap from seeds we have planted. One may sow and another may reap, what a glorious field we have been given to work, out of the love and devotion we have for Him. He has already done the hard work for us all, by Him being our Sacrifice on the cross. The only work we have to do is tell people about His love, by them believing in the one God sent to save us, out of the love He has for us. This was Jesus's work and when we have the Holy Spirit living in us it becomes our work. We will be saying, "Come and see a man who told me everything I ever did." Come and see who healed me from my sin, because He loved me enough to know what all I did, and He still loved me enough to save me." This is who we are, loving people while still knowing all they ever did because God has revealed it to us, and we still love them enough to tell them about our Savior. We all have sinned, we all at a time in our lives did not know Him. None of us are born knowing Him the way He wants us to know Him. We may know Him from what other people have told us, we may know Him from our own understanding of who He is. We may know Him from a religious point of view through traditions and duty. We may know Him from working our way to knowing Him by doing things for Him instead of looking at who we are to Him. We may know Him from our own circumstances and base everything on our circumstances other than on our own relationship with Him He has revealed to us through our circumstance. Our knowing Him comes from Him telling us who we are to Him personally, He told her, "I who speak to you am Him". Everything we are should come from us believing everything He is telling us and because of His words living in us, many more will become believers. Because of His words not ours, we only speak and do what our Father wants us to say and do. We do not live only by the food of the earth but we live by the food given to us by our Father in Heaven and that is for us to do the will of him who sent us and to finish his work. I tell you open your eyes and look at the fields! When we come to the place on our journey where we take Jesus at His word, "You may go, you will live, your son will live, your daughter will live, your husband will live and anyone that is in your field will live because He has told us everything we ever did, then our life of living will truly start! I love everyone with the love Christ gives me because He told me everything I ever did and He saved me, now let Him tell you everything you ever did, where you can here for yourselves, He really is the Savior of the world!
