    For thought and meditation

    Come and see a man who told me everything I ever did! Could he possibly be the Messiah?"

    —John 4:29

    There is a lot of power in the simplicity of a changed life. After Jesus spoke with the woman at the well in Samaria, she immediately went out and began to tell others. The Bible tells us that she “left her water jar beside the well and ran back to the village, telling everyone, ‘Come and see a man who told me everything I ever did! Could he possibly be the Messiah?’ ” (John 4:28–29).

    Her testimony was so powerful that people believed as a result. The passage goes on to say, “Many Samaritans from the village believed in Jesus because the woman had said, ‘He told me everything I ever did!’ ” (verse 39). That is the power of a changed life.

    When the Jewish leaders questioned the man whom Jesus healed, he replied, “I know this: I was blind, and now I can see!” (John 9:25).

    It’s so important when you can share the before and after of what God has done for you. Maybe people would never imagine that you used to be what you were or that you used to do what you once did, because you have been so transformed by Jesus Christ. And when you share that story, it can speak to them in a special way.

    It is interesting how often the apostle Paul, who was a brilliant orator, a great communicator, and a wonderful intellect, would use his testimony to speak to people. When he was speaking before the Roman governor in Acts 24, he began with his own story of how he came to faith. Then he went to the essential core message of the gospel.

    Your testimony, your story, is a way to begin building a bridge. It’s a bridge to get to the bigger story, which is Jesus.
    when the dust settles and the smoke clears all that matters is I hear the words " well done my good and faithfully servant "

    Excellent Word! We did a bible study last night of Romans 6, and I mentioned Paul throughout multiple times. How appropriate.

    As bad as the Romans and the Jewish leaders wanted to get rid of Jesus, all they could really convict Him of was being "too good to be real!" But as always, when one becomes a nuissance to the state, they trumped up some charge that he'd claimed to be the Messiah, and they couldn't or wouldn't allow themselves to believe that, so ..... they crucified Him. People have always been the same, no matter when they've populated this earth. We still have those today who are trying to "kill him" effectively, by wiping out His Holy Name from all buildings, meetings, and gov't and social meetings!!! This is NOT what "Freedom of Religion" is, folks! But it's what we're allowing to go on all around us, and like sheep being led to the slaughter, we follow along obediently to whatever devlish laws get passed! I truly fear for my country, and my son and grandson's future here! God help us all!
