This podcast is the second in a series that comes from John 4 when the Lord Jesus Christ ministered to the woman at the well. Mark Marbry and I interact on the following points

1. How God's Will is made known to us thru opposition -- those opposed to the truth. God promises to prepare a table of blessings for us in the presence or our enemies (Psalm 23:5) One of the ways The Lord Jesus confirmed the Father's leading in His life was by the opposition that came His way.

2. How critical it is to understand the danger of being a respect of persons in social interactions? Jesus illustrated it in his interaction with the woman at the well -- him being a Jew and her being a Samaritan. James goes into great detail (James 2:1-10) explaining that if we operate with a respect of person's attitude we have become judges with evil thoughts (James 2:4) -- speaking to believers.

3. How God has illustrated in His creation truth that reveals our desperate need of Christ and salvation. With the woman at the well the analogy is WATER. Just as water is a vital need for man's body -- the living water of Christ and salvation through Him is vital for the health of every person's soul. The Lord told the woman at the well if you drink only of the temporal water you will continue to be parched in the emptiness of your soul. But he says in John 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. We give further analogies in the gospels of how the needs of the body reveal the needs of our soul.

4. How God commands every man everywhere to repent (Acts 17:30). This is a balancing point to some of the points we made in the first podcast. All men will be without excuse in the eternal day of judgment before God as to accountability to truth as it is found in Jesus Christ.

5. Towards the end of the podcast Mark shares his personal testimony of how he came to realize one day in church that he really wasn't saved as God one onone spoke to him. The timing of the Lord coming to the well at the "sixth hour" gave him the one on one opportunity to talk with the woman at the well. That was the day she was saved. Ultimately in life each of us needs to come to that one on one encounter with God and hear HIS VOICE SPEAKING TO US CONCERNING OUR NEED OF SALVATION THROUGH HIM. More than any man's voice each person must come to the place in life when he hears the Lord Jesus Christ's voice. Joh_10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
