The Hungry

Recap of last week.
John 4:28–42 NLT
The woman left her water jar beside the well and ran back to the village, telling everyone, “Come and see a man who told me everything I ever did! Could he possibly be the Messiah?” So the people came streaming from the village to see him. Meanwhile, the disciples were urging Jesus, “Rabbi, eat something.” But Jesus replied, “I have a kind of food you know nothing about.” “Did someone bring him food while we were gone?” the disciples asked each other. Then Jesus explained: “My nourishment comes from doing the will of God, who sent me, and from finishing his work. You know the saying, ‘Four months between planting and harvest.’ But I say, wake up and look around. The fields are already ripe for harvest. The harvesters are paid good wages, and the fruit they harvest is people brought to eternal life. What joy awaits both the planter and the harvester alike! You know the saying, ‘One plants and another harvests.’ And it’s true. I sent you to harvest where you didn’t plant; others had already done the work, and now you will get to gather the harvest.” Many Samaritans from the village believed in Jesus because the woman had said, “He told me everything I ever did!” When they came out to see him, they begged him to stay in their village. So he stayed for two days, long enough for many more to hear his message and believe. Then they said to the woman, “Now we believe, not just because of what you told us, but because we have heard him ourselves. Now we know that he is indeed the Savior of the world.”
John 4:28-
Personal desire
Share the gospel, teach the word, empower the church
Ideal desires for church planting
Started in faith, with nothing
Started as an immature 25 year old
Doubt, attack
Prophecy
1 Timothy 4:14 ESV
Do not neglect the gift you have, which was given you by prophecy when the council of elders laid their hands on you.
Amplified Bible (AMP)
14 Do not neglect the spiritual gift within you, which was intentionally bestowed on you by the Holy Spirit through prophetic utterance when the elders laid their hands on you at your ordination.
Breakdown.

Come and See
She immediately wants to tell others
Here story was compelling and her verbage was compelling.
Brandon talking about fishing, different baits

Hiding cliff bars
Doing the will of God
Are you doing the will of God
Not talking about it, not listening to it, reading it, tweeting about it, #tagging it
No! from doing

You know the saying, ‘Four months between planting and harvest.’ But I say, wake up and look around. The fields are already ripe for harvest.

You know the saying, ‘One plants and another harvests.’ And it’s true. I sent you to harvest where you didn’t plant; others had already done the work, and now you will get to gather the harvest.”
