One of the joy in my life this school year is that I get to enjoy the company of my grandson. He is a Freshman in high school. Because the school bus doesn’t run to the area where he lives, his father drops him off at my house in the morning on his way to work, then the bus picks him up here and takes him to school. He comes early and we have almost two hours to spend together. Most afternoons he also spends with me.
Every morning we read a Bible portion and pray. When reading the book of Hebrews, verse 10 in chapter 6 stood out. I would like send it as a greeting to all the faithful parents and teachers who devote themselves to teaching the Word of God.
For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for his name in serving the saints, as you still do.
Almost all my life I have taught the Bible. When my girls grew up I had the joy of reading the Word with them; now I enjoy my grandson.
I would like to encourage you to be faithful in sharing with your loved ones the Word of God. Today the story is about a despised woman who found in Jesus springs of living water that filled her heart to overflowing. In the story I use the example of throwing a stone into the water and seeing the waves form. That’s how it is when we share the news of our Savior.
Breaking news is like waves in the water. Just as more and more waves are formed, so spoken words have a rippling effect. They go from our family to our friends, and from there to our neighbors and then to other acquaintances. At last, everyone has heard the news!
I am sure you are faithfully praying for the people in your life who do not know Christ. Let’s continue praying that they will have the wonderful experience of the springs of living water that Jesus offers.
Read the story of the Samaritan Woman in John chapter 4.
The woman’s encounter with Jesus had a rippling effect!
