Greetings Orient! We pick up the story for this Sabbath with Jesus and the Samaritan woman. He said to her,
"Give me a drink, you would have been the one to ask and he would of have given you living water..."
And the conversation continues,
["...11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: whence then hast thou that living water?
12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his sons, and his cattle?
13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Every one that drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
14 but whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall become in him a well of water springing up unto eternal life...]
When we first come to Christ, we sometime don't understand how much Power our Lord has as Diety. He has the rope to pull out the deepest water in the thirtiest desert. His understanding is without beginning or end. And as he set himself the center of our hope, rightly he is the most equipped for the Job as High Priest. He has all the answers to all the questions. No question is so deep or riddle so hidden he cannot dicern and answer my need appropiatedly...
He quotes himself,
["...Matthew 13:35 (Whole Chapter)
That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world...]
Now nothing is hid from him, and even dicern the taitiest dot of arrogance and pride. And quite minister to us very well because as creator he know man very well and can control man, unlike popular notion that God has lost control of his experiment- man! And we should fear God with the deepest respect and awe for him. And some of the most difficult question man has, he has them because he never, humbles himself and ask God...!
Surely man pride is his technology and knowledge and machinery and great exploit of some sort! But God reveals in Romans that man has not regard for him or his creation. Inventing some sore looser notion about how the universe began and how we came form apes or even fish or some sort of crawling creature! It's amusing really how foolish that is when they send the hubble telescope and cannot seem to find the bottom of the barrel bottom of the universe...!
"If can't weight it I won't believe it!", says man in his universities and renonown colleges. Not related one time I was reading a blog about a father who would not understand his teenage daughter who would not turn around and see things his way! I said, "Give her time and give her space...!" And I thought that would be late Einstein's gravitational theory of attraction...? Time and Space and Attraction...I thought that was funny! And how light bends around someone full of mess or mass! Ok! Back to story...
Now why the best pick like me? After last paragraph God you would think is nuts! But he in his wisdom picked the lowest comedians like myself to preach the gospel. So when they take a look at me, nobody would be ashamed of himself or herself! And that pleased God that no one would feel ashamed to believe him. And he said that if anyone acknowleged him publicly before men, he would make sure he send a sign from heaven and acknowledge that person in from of men...!
And you see how simple I am! But I learned that it is not about me! But all about God and you coming to him! And he has the rope to get the water you need and the rope to tie up the furiest steer bull that comes running after you in Texas, perhaps tie up a dragon in the Orient, we have Bulls in Texas, and we have Dragons in the Orient! It rhymes doesn't it? God can rope both of them and we'll be safe! Relaxed? I hope you are! I just thought I work you up before you go to your Parish this Sunday! I will charge rolayalties for all the nice
results we get out of your smile today! Smile God loves you...! What happened to this blog...?!
