Never underestimate the power of our testimonies! Our faith stories declare grace, forgiveness, and assurance. Other people need to hear about Jesus’ touch on our lives. When was the last time you shared Jesus’ story and your story with another person?
Jesus passed through Samaria one day. He was tired from His journey. Taking a moment to catch His breath, Jesus sat down beside a well. A Samaritan woman came to the well to draw water. Jesus did the unthinkable that day and started a conversation with her. She was surprised and shocked. Jews and Samaritans generally didn’t engage one another in conversations. However, this day was different. Jesus and the woman talked about personal needs, relationships, and worship. Jesus knew every detail about her life. As a result of that conversation, the woman left her water jar, went back into town, and said to the people, “Come, see a man who told me all that I ever did. Can this be the Christ” (Jn. 4:29)? Did the townspeople listen to the woman’s story? God moved that day! John 4:39 reveals, “Many Samaritans from that town believed in him (Jesus) because of the woman’s testimony.” Never underestimate the power of your testimony!
This Sunday, in the “Hello My Name Is…” sermon series, we’re looking at the Samaritan woman’s life. Jesus desires to use our stories to touch other people, allowing them to experience His amazing grace. During this Sunday’s worship gathering, we’ll be able to read the cardboard testimonies of many people. People will share details about their lives and how God’s grace has covered them. It’s a Sunday that you and your family will not want to miss. I’d even say that this Sunday is a perfect day to invite your family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, and classmates to come with you. Let’s pray and ask the Lord for courage and opportunities to invite other people to church this week. It could be an invitation that changes another person’s eternity.
In preparation for Sunday’s worship, I appeal for us to pray and ask the Lord to do a great work! Our God can do beyond all that we can ask, think, or imagine (Eph. 3:20-21)! May revival and spiritual awakening come to Bradfordville!
My heart is burdened to see people saved in our worship gatherings. “Jesus, please use Your Word and our stories to help other people see the spiritual (and urgent) need for a personal relationship with You! I’d love to see the altar filled with people trusting Jesus as Savior and surrendering their lives to follow Him as Lord.
I’ll see you Wednesday night and Sunday morning.
Show Us Your Glory, Lord!
