Bible Text: Genesis 33:17-20 |

Introduction: The first thing we see here in verse 17 is that Jacob went on a journey. In the same way, everyone who has been saved has also started on a journey for Christ.

  • Wells were extremely important
    • They were a necessity of life - human, animal, plant life
    • They were represented to be miraculous, a direct result of God's providence

The well must be dug (Genesis 26:19-22)

  • In the same way as digging a well, the ministry is going to require hard, physical labor
  • You will get tired and even discouraged in the ministry - Galatians 6:9
  • Looking back to the past will never help you move forward for Christ
  • We will be rewarded in heaven for staying faithful to Christ - 2 Corinthians 2:5

The well must be deep (John 4:11)

  • If our ministry isn't deeply grounded in God's word, it will dry up every time
  • We must keep close sin accounts with God

From out of the well will flow results

  • Things are not always the way they seem in the ministry
  • God blesses and uses us in ways we cannot understand
