The Woman at the Well

John 3:36 - has = possession now
                  living water = flowing, moving water

John 4:1-26 - God Seeks true Worshipers (believers, disciples)
                      ie:  that's His desire (want) - 2 Pet. 3:9 - not just a matter of us seeking God
hence.... the Incarnation - Luke 19:10
              the journey through Samaria - John 4:4 - "must" - was there a divinely appointed meeting??

Point:  God is committed to "finding" you.
Question:  Will you "be found"? - (allow it?)

John 4:27-38 - God Seeks Co-Workers (partners)
Analogy = sower/reaper    Compare:  1 Cor. 3:5-9 (a)

Question:  What's your commitment to "the work of the kingdom" - Matt. 9:35-38

John 4:39-42 - with John 2:25
Jesus knew the heart of this woman....
Jesus knew the heart of the whole village!!

Point #1) - God knows YOUR heart - (your location, condition, need(s)
He's not Just "Savior of the World" BUT = Savior of YOU!!  in all situations!!

Point #2) - God know the hearts of those around you!!
Not just what they do, but why they do it!!!

Now, we've only covered 4 chapters in John and already he has declared Jesus to be Lord of the Temple, Lord of Worship, Lord of Salvation, Lord of the whole world.
