Only Jesus Can Satisfy Your Soul

Only Jesus Can Satisfy Your Soul

“Whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst.”   Jn 4:14 NKJV

The line from an old hit song goes, “Looking for love in all the wrong places.” That was true of a woman Jesus met at a well in Samaria. Here’s her story: (1) She tried religion but it didn’t satisfy her. She told Jesus, “Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship” (v. 20 NKJV). So she had religious head knowledge but it didn’t satisfy the longings of her heart. Has that been your experience too? (2) She tried human relationships and they failed her. Jesus told her, “You have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband” (v. 18 NKJV). Has that happened to you too? The relationship you need most—is with Jesus. (3) She tried Jesus and He satisfied her soul. When Jesus told her, “Whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst,” she replied, “Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst” (vv. 14-15 NKJV). Religion without a personal relationship with God will leave you unsatisfied and unfulfilled. It’s like drinking saltwater—the more you drink, the thirstier you get. Religion devoid of a relationship with Christ is like a pacifier that a baby works hard to suck on, but from which no real nutrition flows. Perhaps you’ve been disappointed by Christians and hurt by the church. If so, the word for you today is: Don’t give up religion until you’ve tried Jesus, for only He can satisfy your soul.

I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite
some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like
this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy
reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to
make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you
could be giving us something enlightening to read?

I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct
this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share.
