Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Jesus the Sent One
Pastor Allan was ministering
and from my notes I present a digested sermon.
“It is important that we
share with one another what God is doing in our life.A brother gave an inspiring testimony of
healing and the people were encouraged.
Pastor mentioned that last
week he spoke about pursuing God and experiencing Him in your Spirit.Knowledge is good, but we need more than just
head knowledge to “KNOW” and experience God in your Spirit.
Religion is binding but in
Christ there is freedom.Reach out and
seek His face.
God wants to use you and that
is why He desires you to be released from all that binds you.We must first desire release with a sincere
Jesus met a woman in John
chapter 4.It was on purpose, for the
Scripture says, He must needs go to Samaria.He was tired and thirsty and sat upon the
well that was there.
It was not the
usual time for woman to draw water, but a woman cautiously came to the well not
wanted anyone to see her; for she was embarrassed about her lifestyle.
Jesus asked her for a drink, and she
questioned him about why he would ask of her a Samaritan.He answered if she only knew who He was, she
would ask and He would give her Living water.She replied, “Ever more give me this water.”
As they talked, his answers surprised her
because he revealed that He knew about her sinful background.
conversation continued he told her that God is a Spirit and we must worship Him
in Spirit.Then Jesus revealed to her
that He was the Sent One from The Father, and He was the Messiah. She
immediately believed and ran to bring others to meet Jesus.
It is a matter of desire for
a person to change.Jesus offers us Living
Water, but we must desire to come to Him.Our desire must be more than a wish, but a deep craving for God, a
yearning to serve, to obey and to drink of the Living water.Receiving Jesus into your life is a
supernatural event in your spirit.It is
a touch from above.
Allow Him to reveal to you
who He truly is.He knows all your
hidden secrets, but He loves you anyway.He wants to meet with you for a God encounter.Desire to worship with an attitude of not
caring what others think.God will
manifest Himself to you, as you praise Him.
You may be up here at the
“alter time,” and it depends on your desire to receive.Are you willing to commit and live a Holy
life, or do you walk away empty?I
encourage you to allow the Holy Spirit of God to do a work in your
heart and in your spirit.
Some wrestle with God and are
not willing to lay it all down and give it up.What holds you back from a full surrender to His will?
Stand with your hands raised,
telling Him of your desire to love and serve Him.Roll off your burdens at His feet.
The Samaritan woman ran to tell others
that she had found the true Messiah.He
is the ONE to bring salvation.He is the
mighty God to deliver and heal every affliction and disease, including cancer.
Jesus is willing to remove all
spirits of addiction.Don’t be deceived,
thinking you are too great a sinner.Jesus came to seek and to save the lost and that includes you.
Jesus cared about that
woman’s soul, as He shared with her the truth.
Do not grieve the Holy Spirit
by turning away, because he yearns to draw you onto Jesus the Savior.
Thank you God for being
present here today.May those who enter
our Sanctuary realize that God is here.
