Some reflective thought

Reading through John 4 this morning I am hit with a few things:

  1. God offers a living water to the Samaritan woman.
He talks about a gift where want is no longer something that you have. It’s just 6 days away from my birthday and I am trying to imagine a life without want. That new car instead of driving the Saturn, the new iPhone 3g to curb my technological desires, or the want of an incredible dinner every night that I come home. What would it be like if there was no want? It boggles my mind to think of a place and I also know that I should be living that way now but I’m not. I just “want” too many things and that is unfortunate.
     2. Worship in Spirit and in Truth. The message puts it this way:
23-24“It’s who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. That’s the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship. God is sheer being itself—Spirit. Those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration.”
I think of how I search for who I am and who God is on a consistent basis. To worship God like He wants you must do it “out of your very being” who God created you to be. Man I wish that is how I live my life. This is who I am. My name is J.C. and this is who I am. 
Pray for me as I continue to discover who I am and as I struggle with want. I pray that we as followers of Christ would quit striving to be something we are not and rather live life like God created us.
