God has an encouraging word for you and me today. The Bible-based teaching of Dr. Don Wilton's vision of the Kurds were in the next few moments. John chapter 4 as we continue not only this understanding of what good moms do becoming a godly mother is the actual title, but how we as individuals, male and female are growing in the word of God because many cases of our mothers. This is all on the way in just a few minutes while we study the word Dr. Wilton want to remind you to pray for you anytime at 866-899-WORD 866899673 and here in the summertime. Sometimes our regular schedules are disrupted so we got an idea will share with you in just a minute on how you can revolutionize your summer schedule that's on the way we dive into God's word with Dr. Don Wilton that there is at least one person sitting here today. The only reason that you is because mother insisted that you come all Walmart. Excuse me, boy.

You get your clothes on. Right now we going to church. I like that don't you. I remember when I was growing up and my mom and dad. We serve the church overseas. My dad did the parsonage was right next to the church brother Chairman of deacons Keith. This was one I mean listen. The church was yeah the parsonage was right there.

I became convinced that a very early. I that I didn't need to go to church. I could just lie in bed and listen to my bed breach.

I mean he would bellow full. This is the most wonderful thing but I tell you my mother had another idea. I remember times folks son you get up time to go to church. You know I'm grateful for mother who was committed to rearing her son in the knowledge and admonition of the Lord Jesus Christ, godly mother, my friends, she is not offset by all the things she doesn't step back because Sunil bolted takes a full she steps forward.

She doesn't point a finger and blame in getting your face she's they offer a remedy and to help them to be alongside and to show where to go. Mother who is committed to rearing children in the knowledge and admonition of the Lord. That's a godly mother number five godly mother demonstrates the fruit of the spirit going to Galatians chapter 5 read a lot about what the apostle had to say to the church at Galatia.

It's a wonderful thing to think about the fruit of the spirit, love and joy and peace and long-suffering and kindness and awkwardness.

Please which are exhibited in the heart of a godly mother you see a godly mother is somebody that no matter what the circumstances. She's always there.

She shows you how to have the right attitude because she demonstrates the fruit of the spirit. She helps you to channel your anger.

She helps you to develop the right relationships, godly mother is somebody who teaches her daughters and sons not to have a gossiping, that's a godly mother, a godly mother says no my son know my daughter.

That's not how you live a godly mother says this is what you do. This is how you conduct yourself.

This is the way you will and not only does a godly mother say those things herself leave in those things. I thank the Lord for godly mothers, don't you want it. That's somewhat of a definition of what a godly mother is out next question is how a mother becomes godly. How does that happen what I think Karen this encounter here in John chapter full. It was no accident that Jesus made up together with this woman. It's a remarkable story really is remarkable for a lot of reasons, and I'm not today trying to put this into context, but it's remarkable because she was a Samaritan to begin with. Americans and Jews didn't quite like each other. They hated one another. You want to understand the animosity between the Samaritan and the Jews go and have a look at what's happening between Israel and the Palestinians sign thing.

They just simply hate each other but it was remarkable not only because this was a Samaritan and a Jew but it was even more remarkable because Jesus was a man talking to this woman who was a woman and even though it makes us uncomfortable to think like this. Back in those days.

My friends women were considered less than capable women were not even considered worthy of engaging in any kind of conversation and in fact were considered capable of holding a conversation they were treated like the Caliban treated their women in the Arab world, and I want to tell you something, Jesus Christ the Savior of the world to make a statement that there is neither Jew nor Greek, neither my nor female, not the bon mot free will.

The Lord Jesus Christ, amen.

This was a remarkable thing back to be read further on down in this passage are going to discover that it ruffled the faces of even the they were disgruntled with the highest order.

They didn't like this. It disturbed and upset they status quo extracting data treasury. It brought great disrepute upon the company of they committed believers because Jesus had stooped so low to have an encounter with a woman, but what I'm going to submit to you today is that what this encounters all about. It's about one woman becoming a godly woman. How do you become a godly mother. Well, I can summarize it and then going to details you become a godly mother by taking a drink of Jesus water that you have any questions about that this morning. You become a godly mother by taking a drink of the water that Jesus offers to you. Evidently we know well what it means to drink from the wills that flow up around us in our world today. But Jesus said you can drink that water but you first again you drink of the water that I'll give you you will never thirst again at this woman turned to Jesus and said well in that case, things are let me have a drink, please. How do you become a godly mother. It's simple, but taking a drink of Jesus water. Now the question is what this water that Jesus gave her do for her will. Number one quenches our thirst quenches our thirst. This lady was thirsty, spiritually.

Jesus said you drink of my water. My Walter is going to quench the thirst number two it saves her life.

Jesus was saying to her, listen, lighting. You don't have a life unless you drink of this water will to save his life.

Number three. It softens her rough edges. You see, it's no mistake that this conversation have to do with water.

Jesus symbolically talking about himself as the water of life. You and I know that one of the qualities of Walters that it softens things that have become hardened and yet was this lady who came into the presence of the king of kings and the Lord of lords with a hardened life, a life that had been scarred and marred by sin and Jesus was telling her you take a drink of this water. Let me tell you what's going to happen. It's going to soften your rough edges you take a drink of this water. It's going to quench your thirst.

It's going to save your life.

But there's 1/4 thing that Jesus was telling her. He said you take a drink of this water, it will extinguish your fires. It extinguished her files. That's what Walter does. Water is one of the greatest fire extinguishers you know, one of the times that I least enjoy in the United States is during those dry periods, especially when we see on television. What happens in California and Montana Yellowstone with these massive fires and down in Florida. What grieves our hearts is the ecological disaster that follows animals that are destroyed.

It just ruins the landscape will how do they counteract these large files they get a huge airplane and they fly across the lake and they scoop up hundreds of thousands of gallons of water. Lay flat over that forest fire. They just dump tons and tons of water and what is it extinguishers the five because what Jesus Christ was saying to this lady lady listen to me. The only means by which you are going to become a godly woman, godly mother is all fires are extinguish. Take a drink of this water, it will extinguish your files. Number five cleans her body well we know about Walter cleaning our bodies. I do remember some months ago.

Meeting with the man and his wife, and they had manifold difficulties, and I do remember that the lady siding in front of her husband. To me she said pasta. I feel so dirty. I feel so unclean. My life is so scarred by the way in which we have lived. I feel filthy.

This lady came to the Lord Jesus Christ. And that's what she was trying to tell him. And Jesus knew that already.

Jesus understood the decadence of her life.

He understood the sinfulness of her life he was standing before him, saying, surely we could talk about this Walter this physical world and Jesus was saying to you want to be cleansed in your body take a drink of the water.

Please forgive the interruption will be back with the rest of today's message with Dr. Don Wilton in just a moment with Dr. Johnson, challenge us in the summer months to make sure we don't leave out some of the critical parts of our growth bureau part of our routine.

Number six cannot love this one.

When Jesus offered to his Walter. He cultivated her fruit bearing cultivates fruit bearing. That's how you get a fruit tree to grow you walk for you deprive a fruit tree of Walter it's going to begin to wither and die and what Jesus was saying to this lady you want to become a godly woman you want to become a godly mother you want to be the very basics-of all that I'm teen you to be. Take a drink of the water that I will give to you yes what's going to happen. You are going to become a fruit bear.

I fruit there. You see, Jesus was talking about fruit that remains.

He was talking about abiding in him being inextricably intertwined into the heart of the Lord Jesus Christ and what the Lord was saying to this lady is listen. I have created you in my image and you have told an unlimited potential. You are a Jew among Jews, and in order for you to be the very best expression of all time trained you to be you want to be a true fruit bear like a drink of the water that I will give but there was 1/7 issue involved.

Jared satisfies her eternally. Jesus said here in chapter 3 verse 13 and the second party said I the water that I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal what Jesus was saying to this lady he was saying to a listen prior to drinking this Walter.

There is a definitive termination but you drink of the water that I give to you.

You are going to be overly satisfied. You know I meets often mothers who are on the database and it's a wonderful thing to speak to a mother who looks back over her life and says I thank the Lord Jesus that what he has given to me has satisfied me eternally. It can never be taken away what we've tried to ask ourselves what a godly mother is we've tried to ask ourselves how a mother becomes godly. You'd say to me today pasta. How do I become godly, take a drink of the water, the Jesus gives this 1/3 thing that we must loss what does a godly mother become what's the result of all of this. Well, I've told you already, we don't know all the details in this passage we done boldly in these amounts. In fact, there is no mention of motherhood as it relates to the Samaritan woman.

Perhaps I don't know. But one day when I get to heaven.

I'm I think I'm going to have to add her to my growing list I would. I would just like to be able to walk up to the Samaritan woman and say we have a little full. You know, we studied about you in Sunday school.

In fact, I'm going to confess to live and preached about you because God put you in the Bible and I know that you became a believer in any case, your hearing heaven with me, but I'd like to know something when you had that encounter how many children did you have, what kind of mother where you before you make Jesus at the will. What I'd really like to know is what kind of mother did you become off you took a drink of his Walter will I'm going to submit to you that there are seven things that a godly mother becomes number one. A godly mother becomes a thirst quenching. I like that don't you associate Granger to her family.

You know why she becomes a thirst quenching because she points her family to Jesus Christ she knows what that Walter is all about, but it goes beyond that, a godly mother becomes a lifesaver. That's what walk is all about. You see, this is the essence of disciple and Mike, I want to submit to you today that what happens when a mother takes a drink of this Walter that what God does is he places right there in the hope the ultimate disciple maker that mother because she's godly. She becomes a lifesaver because she points her husband and her children to Jesus Christ. That's what she does. I love my children I have three of them. My two boys play basketball, you know, folks.

We all have hopes and aspirations and dreams don't think about our children. I told my oldest son several times that I hope and pray, and not generally expect that he's going to be drafted by the Boston Celtics off cool. I'm the one who taught him how to slamdunk. And besides that, folks, that's how we going to play for the race to building together and fight.

You know we all have hopes and aspirations and dreams. We all want our children to do well done. Three will want our sons and daughters to become the CEO live comfortably and have a wonderful home and married well and I mean we will have hopes and dreams and that's wonderful and I don't think we should ever stop doing that.

But is there anything more precious than what a godly mother does is drunk of the ward of the Jesus gives in that to her children. She becomes a lifesaver. There's 1/3 thing about a godly mother. She becomes a rough age softener. You know there's nobody quite like mom who can identify the rough edges. Nobody knows rough edges among her children better than mom, you know, we go out then we can impress everybody on the ball field and we can stand up and speak in praise everybody and we can save and we can do everything that you ever know that there's nobody who can identify the rough edges quicker than mom but you know a godly mother becomes a rough age softener because she points her children to Jesus Christ who is the water of life.

She helps children to grow up in the home and refine those rough agents. She takes that rough diamond and begins to polish and turn out the most spectacular diamond that you've ever seen. She's a rough age softener, but for a godly woman who has drunk of the ward of the Jesus gives to her becomes a fire extinguisher mothers. I didn't say you look like a fire extinguisher. I said you become like a fire extinguisher.

You know why because a godly mother is a spiritual anticipated godly mothers have an intuition because they are guided and directed by the Spirit of God who dwells in them.

Godly mothers anticipate fire. They see the hurt and the plane and when the plane takes place. There is no better person to be around them. That godly mother because she knows how to extinguish the fire.

What is a godly mother be, she becomes a body claims she has drunk of that water and as she brings up her sons and daughters in the knowledge and admonition of the Lord Jesus Christ welling up with in her is that ability through Christ Jesus to be a body claims in many instances, she prevents she stops. She closes that plane not to come upon that son or daughter. She anticipates that she says son don't do that. Don't say that.

Don't go. They don't put that in your body, because if you put it in your body. Hope you associate with that immorality you are going to have a filthy body because of what Jesus Christ has done for her. God puts her in the home and she is a body claims are number six. She is a fruit cultivator. I love this. That's what Walter is all about. That's what Jesus Christ does for her because she takes a drink of that living water. She is a fruit cultivator mom reaching down and bringing out the very best in that psalm and that daughter making them to blossom into complete fruition, it is mom enables that son or daughter to become the very best expression of the giftedness that God has put into that trial. My son my daughter this is what God has called you to do this is what God expects of you, but sabertooth godly mother becomes a permanent satisfied I'll guarantee you something. There are some men and women today who are worshiping with us, that would let us know in a heartbeat that it was mom who gave to you the permanence of the satisfaction that you have for one reason she pointed you to Jesus that's what she did she just say the sun.

Let me show you Jesus I want to ask your question today. Have you taken a drink of this water.

Are you standing at the well, like this woman is. Have you had your cup food. Are you satisfied eternally. I love you today. I thank the Lord for our mothers.
