THE THINGS WE SHOULD LEAVE FOR CHRIST. BY REV. DAVID GREGG A WOMAN OF SAMARIA WITH HER WATER-POT. " The woman left her water-pot. " — John iv. 28. I chose this text at the hour of noon, while resting on the very spot where Jesus rested, and where He talked with the Samaritan woman. I chose it at Jacob's Well, on the very stone where the woman left her water-pot. There may be dis-cussions as to other sites pertaining to Scripture incidents, but there is no discussion whatever as to the site of Jacob's well. This is the best identified spot in all Palestine. One visit by the Lord Jesus Christ made it forever famous, and impossible of being forgotten or mistaken. A plain, unpretentious stone corridor surrounding a vault-covered well, the mouth-stone of which has been grooved by the ropes of ages — such is Jacob's well.

Samuel and called him to greatness. And here, for nearly four hundred years, the glorious She-kinah shone above the mercy-seat between the cherubim in the Holy of holies. But the greatest revelation of God was at Jacob's well ; for to Ja-cob's well the Son of God Himself came. He was the true Shekinah, in whom dwelt all the ful-ness of the Godhead bodily. Here He held forth one noon -day, and by one grand talk revealed Him-self as the long-looked for Messiah. This was the Word made flesh and dwelling among men. Three such spots of revelation, seen in twenty-four hours — Bethel, Shiloh, Jacob's well, all holy places — that was enough to make any twenty-four hours a memorable day ! That outer May day was grand. The sun was shining in its strength, the THINGS WE SHOULD LEAVE FOR CHRIST. 77 atmosphere was clear and crystalline, the flowers were in full bloom, the vale of Shechem was freighted with the waving grain at the beginning
