Pastor JenkinsJohn 4:14”But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.”

As we approach one of the holiest times of year, for Christians, we are reminded of the great reward we all received when Christ was born. He was more than a baby, grew to be more than a man. He became our Savior and our Lord! To be sure, no greater gift could humanity receive from a loving God. No other gift could ever replace what we received with the birth of Jesus Christ. Jesus came to forgive our sins and to secure everlasting life for everyone who believes. As if that wasn’t enough he promised that he would never leave us alone. He kept that promise by sending the gift of the Holy Spirit to reside within us as a guide and to remind us that divinity is within us and a part of us.

I have always found this fascinating and considered myself blessed to have the living God take residence within me. The problem has always been living up to such an incredible call to holiness. By mere fact that the Holy Spirit is within us makes us holy beings but we tend to forget that this distinction is a high-calling and that the bar is so high that we must pray continuously to maintain the holiness worthy of our God.

In order to daily strive I thought about Jesus’ words in John 4:14. He challenges us to seek our nourishment from him in order to maintain this holiness. It is when we begin to look to ourselves and to others, for the very things that we should seek the face of God, that our struggles are intensified.

So instead of always going to the throne asking for material things perhaps we should ask that the Giver and Supplier of the living water fill our cups to overflowing in holiness, righteousness, faith and strength. I awaken daily to the desire to please the Lord. It is my daily prayer but I know fully that in and of myself I am powerless to please Him. I want to be found righteous, I want to remain in God’s favor and I want to have him be proud of me. That takes a lot of work and if we are all honest some days we want to call in sick! We want to bow out of holiness and simply be! But the call doesn’t take off for sick days, mental health days or vacation--we must remain steadfast in our pursuit of holiness.

For this celebration of the birth of our Savior and Lord my prayer is that He increases my desire to know Him better, to serve Him and His people with more fervor and to live a life pleasing to Him. What good is everlasting life if in this life we can’t represent the Provider of everlasting life with a Christ-like heart? Never ever live life with regrets and don’t meet the Father and have to explain why you took for granted his gift. Ask for the overflow and you will surely receive. God’s blessings to you all.
