“The woman 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
Whether you have been a Christian for a long time or you have only recently stepped over the line of faith, you have something you can share with others. If you are a Christian, you have had an encounter with the Messiah, and you have a ‘village’ you can share that with.
There are people in your life who may only ever hear about Jesus because of the news you share with them. But the great news is that you don’t have to do it alone. That’s the genius of the local church. You will find yourself surrounded by others who are in the same situation you are in who can strengthen you to run back to the village and tell everyone!
Thank God for where He has you right now. Ask Him to point you to others with whom you can share what is happening in your life and all that you have heard. Ask God to give you courage to speak out.
Think of 5 people who need to hear what you have discovered about the Messiah this week. Invite them this weekend your church, so that they can hear the message of hope for themselves!
