“Jesus answered and said unto her, if thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.” John 4:10Text — John 4:7-10
Sharing is a kind act of giving out what you possess to a friend, neighbor, or even stranger. Sharing is an important Christian service that every child of God must be involved in. God has blessed you with life resources and more importantly salvation. Do not enjoy it alone, share with others.
Jesus’ encounter and conversation with the Samaritan woman reveal important truths about His purpose on earth.
(i) It shows His commitment to doing His heavenly father’s will on earth
(ii) it also gives us an understanding of His desire to share His love with sinners and give them eternal life. Jesus’ utmost desire and passion was to save the lost.
This desire and goal were more important to Him than food and drink. We must follow Jesus’ example and share the gospel with sinners whenever we have the opportunity. All around us, are children who have never heard the real story of God’s love to mankind. We must find ways to share the love of Jesus with sinners so that they can be saved and qualified for eternal life.
Prayer for today
