Today’s Bible reading is John chapter 4
(Read the entire New Testament in 2014 by reading only one chapter each day)
Jesus’ encounter with the woman at the well shows the kindness and quality of His love toward sinners. There were three things the woman needed to know. First, Jesus was offering her eternal life. Her soul was thirsty and only Christ could satisfy or quench her spiritual thirst. Second, her sin separated her from God and she needed to confess it. God convicted her heart as Jesus exposed her disobedience. She would later say, “Come and see a man who told me everything I ever did!” Not only did she realize her sin, but also Christ showed this lady her need to believe on Christ. She knew about the Messiah but she didn’t know the Messiah. Many people know about God but they don’t know Him in full surrender and salvation. James said, “You believe in one God you do well, the devils also believe and tremble.” The woman at the well placed her faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of her life and she was gloriously saved! She left her water jars and began to tell others about Jesus.
Prayer: “Dear Father help us to share these three important truths with our lost family and friends. In Jesus name. Amen.”
