Medicine is used as treatment for a cold. Sometimes a person may be allergic to the medicine prescribed by the doctor and the doctor will give another prescription. I had an allergic reaction to medicine just prescribed and my face was itchy, but I did not realize I was having a reaction until I took the second dose. My nose was swollen and my face was itchy. Oh no! Not the face!
The one thing that is so good about the Word of God is you can not have an allergic reaction to it. The Word is to help us as we walk out our journey in Christ Jesus. The Word is spirit, life and truth. Once you start, you begin to thirst for it. The Holy Spirit will draw you to Christ even the more.
There is a story of the Samartian woman at the well in John chapter 4 in which Jesus had a conversation.Let’s look at verses 4-15.
7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink. 8 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.) 9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans. 10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. 11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water? 12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? 13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: 14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. 15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.
Jesus told the Samartian woman that whosoever drinketh of the water that I give him shall never thirst, but the water I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. Just in the Lord speaking to her she wanted to have the water.
Ephesians 5:26 states that he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word.
The Samaration women she was being washed by the Word that Jesus was spreaking to her and she wanted more. Do you want to cleansed?
There is life in Christ Jesus.
