I hope this encourages you as much as it does me. Sometimes I feel so dead and so sinful that I don’t see how I can be of any use to the church any more. But up till now God has always come to me at those times and graciously shown me something like this — the hope that a worldly, sensually-minded, unspiritual harlot from Samaria can become — not just saved (which would be wonderful enough) — but a fountain of life. She can be used to give life. And I take heart that if I just turn from my sin and keep drinking at the well of Jesus’s words, I may still be of some use to this congregation. And so can you if you just drink deep at the right well.
