Personal Journal - 1/26/10

Yesterday was pretty wretched. Spent the majority of the time working on a project with Lakelands Orthopedic that I didn't plan on doing, it took the better part of the afternoon. While I was doing this I had people coming into my office, calling, and emailing with problems. Pretty stressful. I'm pretty much ready to find somewhere else, I just have to finish my degree and finish my certification to MCSA.

Finished watching Fellowship last night with JR. Such a good movie that was pretty close to the book. I didn't realize how different it was though, and I remember hearing a lot of people saying that when it came out, obviously I was oblivious to that.

I read John 4 today. It contains the story of Jesus talking to the Samaritan woman at Jacob's well. He declares himself as the savior to her and tells her of the gift that he has brought to the world - never ending spiritual water. The woman is surprised to hear that she can partake of this water even when she has already sinned so much, and was not a Jew. I understand this to be one of the first testaments to the purpose of Jesus' life given by him to a non-Jew. The woman brought many out of the town to hear Him and they also believed. Jesus said that a time was coming (and was already here) that anyone (regardless of race or background) who worships and believes in the Father "in spirit and truth" will have the never ending well of life.

Jesus then traveled to Galilee where he was confronted by a royal official who believed Jesus to be the Messiah. His son was deathly ill and he asked Jesus to heal him and because of his belief he was instantly healed. Because of this, he and his entire household believed.
