Barriers And Blessings

December 5, 2012

What did Jesus see when He looked at the woman at the well in John 4? He saw someone who wanted acceptance and desperately needed to know she was loved. Most of all, He saw someone who needed what only He could give—a new heart.

It was no accident that the disciples had all gone to town to buy food. Surely, they would have tried to warn Jesus not to talk to this person—a woman, a Samaritan, and someone with a bad reputation.

Not being one to follow protocol, however, Jesus used this encounter to bless her with the truth of “living water” (John 4:10). In just one conversation, He broke down barriers of old hostilities, of gender bias, of ethnic and racial divides. And this woman became the first of many Samaritans to confess that Jesus was the Messiah (vv.39-42).

When she told others of her encounter with a Man who knew “all that I ever did,” she was already practicing the principle of “sowing and reaping” that Jesus was teaching His followers (John 4:35-38). Many believed that day, and later Philip, Peter, John, and others would preach in Samaria and lead many more to Christ (Acts 8:5-14; 15:3).

When we tell others of our own “encounter” with Jesus, we bless them with living water.

From sinking sand He lifted me,
With tender hand He lifted me;
From shades of night to plains of light,
O praise His name, He lifted me! —Gabriel
A faith worth having is a faith worth sharing.

Read: John 4:27-39

Many . . . believed in Him because of the word of the woman who testified, “He told me all that I ever did.” —John 4:39
Bible in a Year:
Philippians 1-4

You Are Kind and Caring
You're the type of person who just naturally appreciates and respects others. You think ill of very few people.
You are naturally open minded and nonjudgmental. You're a good listener, and you end up hearing many secrets.

You reach out to everyone during the holidays, and your acts of kindness and generosity are remembered throughout the year.
You are easily touched this time of year. Even the right holiday card or little gift can move you.
Nah...I just like my gingerbread men to LOOK like gingerbread men! :)

You Are Steady and Stable
You're the type of person who doesn't change from year to year. You can be counted on to be you.
You are well grounded and reasonable. You can look at things calmly, even when emotions are involved.

For you, the holidays are about family and tradition. You prefer to do things the mostly same way year after year.
If anything, you are likely to add someone or something to your celebration without taking anything away. You like your holiday traditions to grow over time.
