SHARE YOUR FAITH WITH SOMEONE
Main text: JOHN 4 : 7 (kjv)
“There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith to her ‘Give me to drink”
JOHN 4:29 – “Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did; is not this the Christ?”
One day Jesus met a woman who did come to draw water from a well. After five failed marriages, her trust in men was zero – and herself esteem was minus zero! But after her encounter with Christ, she left the well radically changed.
When it comes to sharing our faith, we learn three important lessons from her story: (1) Jesus sees the best in everybody. The Pharisees complained saying ‘this man receives sinner’s (Luke 15:2). And when it came to the woman at the well, they are right. She had been through five divorces and was the talk of the town because she was living with another man. Yet she was the first person to whom Jesus introduced Himself as the Messiah.
Why didn’t he do that when he called his disciples or performed His first miracle? Because Jesus does not measure us by our past or our pedigree or by our potentials. (2) Jesus changes us, and then uses us to change others. (3) Jesus does not need us to explain Him, just to introduce Him. He speaks for himself.
WIN SOULS FOR CHRIST TODAY
The bible says many more believed, because of his own words … they said to the woman, now we believe, not because of what you said, for we ourselves have heard Him and we know that He is indeed the Christ” (John 4:41 -42). Today share your faith with someone.
Oh God, help me to preach about Jesus today in Jesus Name.
