Dickensiana

A Tale Of Two Cities begins, 'It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.' With Eccleasties' rhythum, Charles Dickens outward word flow dips into casual factors of worst times. Directing us to darkness within Evremondet, revealed is Charles Darnay's Uncle displays distain for human life and desire for lowlife peasants be rid from society.


Best of times are woven out of second chances, opportunities to embrace special purpose, and an alert to the danger of apathy-- when we do not care for another's life and lively-hood then the worst of times gain entrance into our hearts. Taking on a 'just don't care anymore' attitude solves nothing and drains one's momentum.


Jesus met a woman who was solving spiritual as He sat at Jacob's Well. He sees into the Samaritan Woman's heart. She'd used up second chances, of which there were many. She attempting to get her well water and return to town. She reveals to Him she is looking for Messiah. Messiah will solve things; proclaim all things. Jesus replies, "I am He, the One who is speaking to you."


Her heart recognizes Him-- truth. He chooses her. Similarly, He looks into your heart for your true faith in Him. From this Third City, Samaria, times indicate we consistently need Him. Jesus says worship God is key. Worship Heavenly Father in spirit and truth. Yes, Jesus Christ has proclaimed all things in spirit and truth.



22 You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 But the hour is coming and is now here when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such as these to worship Him. 24 God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” 25 The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (who is called Christ). “When He comes, He will proclaim all things to us.” 26 Jesus said to her, “I am He, the One who is speaking to you.” John 4:22-26
