2010 December 14 - Morning Manna

 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw. Jesus saith unto her,  Go, call thy husband, and come hither. The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband: For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly. The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet. Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.  God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. (John 4:15-24)

Today's Morsel:  Cell phones seem to be a big deal these days.  If you don't have  a cell phone, you are behind the times.  Everyone seems to be calling somebody.  It seems it was just a few years ago that when we wanted to make a call overseas, you would have to go through an operator.  But now you just punch in the numbers and you are connected on the other side of the world. Technology is great, isn't it?  Jesus told the woman at the well, go call your husband and come here. What if she did have a husband, and cell phones where available, she could have just punched in his number and said, 'Jesus is here at the well and He wants to see you.'  Do you use your phone to call and remind others of church and service times?  Do you call to see how people are feeling and how they are doing?  Do you use it for spiritual encouragement and enlightment for others?  Jesus said that the Father is seeking for people to worship Him in Spirit and in truth.   How many of your 1440 minutes that God provides to you each day do you use to call Him to see how He's doing, or to just let Him know that you were thinking about Him?  Paul said that we should redeem the time because the days are evil.  In other words, you need to use it carefully and cautiously, because you never know when you may need a few minutes to talk with heaven.  Why not use your cell phone minutes as an evangelistic tool and call someone and invite them to church.  They may just be the ones that God are looking for to worship Him in Spirit and in truth.  And be sure to use some of your daily minutes to talk with God!
Sing:  Telephone to glory, O what joy divine! I can feel the current, moving on the line, built by God the Father, for His loved and own, we may talk to Jesus, through this royal telephone.
