The correct position (John 4)

36 Already the one who reaps is receiving wages and gathering fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together. 37 For here the saying holds true, ‘One sows and another reaps.’  John 4:36-37

One of the most mind-blowing events that takes place in my life is when God connects me with someone who needs Him.  I never get over the honor that God would place me in the correct position to intersect a seeking sinner.

In John 4 Jesus put Himself in the correct position to meet with a woman who was hurting.  This woman’s story is well documented in John 4.

As I read the chapter I gain an understanding of the truth Jesus proclaims to this sinner.  He offers her living water that only comes from Him.  It is amazing that God can meet a person in the spiritual desert of life with life-giving water.

I wonder, do you and I have a desire to get in the correct position so that God can use us?  The disciples seemed to be in the wrong position because Jesus sent them away from this moment.  When they return, it is clear they cannot handle the correct position.

Jesus instruction to them and to us is clear.  We need to understand how important is to get into the position where we are willing to share the living water of Christ with all people.  Yes, all people need Jesus!!!

It is only those who are willing to share the living water that find themselves in this mind-blowing moment of seeing a seeking sinner come to life.  I look forward to what God is going to do in me today.  I am ready, how about you?
