John 4:19-26

"Sir," the woman said, "you must be a prophet. So tell me, why is it that you Jews insist that Jerusalem is the only place of worship, while we Samaritans claim it is here at Mount Gerizim, where our ancestors worshiped?"

Jesus replied, "Believe me, dear woman, the time is coming when it will no longer matter whether you worship the Father on the tis mountain or in Jerusalem. You Samaritans know very little about the one you worship, while we Jews know all about him, for salvation comes through the Jews. But the time is coming-indeed it's here now- when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship Him that way. For God is Spirit, so those who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth."

The woman said, "I know the Messiah is coming-the one who is called Christ. When he comes, he will explain everything to us."

Then Jesus told her, "I AM the Messiah!"

well, it's another great sunday! just got home from the Journey, finally got something to eat, and now i'm going to go swimming with my wife. we haven't gotten to get in the pool without cason for.... well, i can't remember when! ha ha! he's taking a nap right now. 

well, erik started his series about spiritual warfare this week. it was awesome! we had a great day. i know this whole week has been tough for him. i just want to say, "hang in there, bro! you're doing what God wants!" 

usually, i'll get into something deep on my blog and try to give everyone some insight, as to what God is speaking to me. not today! today, i just want to tell everyone who served at the Journey today, "great job!" we couldn't do what we do on sundays if you weren't willing to serve. special thanks to my praise team. you guys rock. you're always prepared and always giving your all. i appreciate that more than you'll ever know. Don and Cindy, glad to have you back! i can't wait to hear about your mission trip! 

lastly, i want to encourage everyone to be inviters. you and i know that we have these new campuses that are going to be launched in the fall. we need all of you to be inviting your neighbors, friends, co-workers. for all you know, one of the key leaders, that the Journey needs to function at the next level, is living right next to you, and they have nowhere to go to church. Or what's more, no one has cared enough about them to ask them to come to church! be inviters! 

blessings everyone, talk to ya tomorrow!
