Nearer My God to Thee
A Sermon on John 4:27-30
Just then his disciples came back. They marveled that he was talking with a woman, but no one said, “What do you seek?” or, “Why are you talking with her?” So the woman left her water jar and went away into town and said to the people, “Come, see a man who told me all that I ever did. Can this be the Christ?” They went out of the town and were coming to him. (ESV)
The need to seek the Lord; obedience to Him; to respond to His 'drawings'; the importance of persistence; discipline; the mark of the saints.
