January 29th 2016 – When the Lord Says to Go!

“But He needed to go through Samaria.” (John 4:4)

In John 4, we see our Lord travel through Samaria. To us this may not mean much, but in that time the hatred between Jews and Samaritans was legendary. Despite the cultural issues around Him, Jesus continues through this land and the Bible says it was a “need.” What could be so important that Jesus had to go through Samaria? Why would Jesus walk through hostile territory? Simple, there was a woman in Samaria who was burdened with sin and shame and Jesus had the answer to her problem. This should be our hearts desire – to be like Jesus. We should be willing to face possible hardship in order to reach others with the Gospel & God’s Living Water.

(Matthew 28:19-20) “‘Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’ Amen.”

The action of sharing our faith is not an option for those who claim Jesus as Lord. We are told in Matthew 28 to “go” and there is no exception found in that verse. The ultimate goal of any believer is to reproduce other believers and as we do, we will see this world changed one soul at a time. Pray today that God would bring someone to you who you can share His love with. It may seem like an impossible task, but as you step out in obedience, God will take you where you need to go to share with someone who needs to hear.

“Sharing your faith is not an option, it is a command. My life was changed beyond measure because a dear friend followed your command in obedience to “Go Home!”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, We love and praise You. Thank You for forgiveness and grace. Lord, help me not to simply admire Your goodness but to share it with a world in need. Give me opportunities to share with my family, friends and others around me today.Give me Your words and guide me by Your Spirit. Thank You for my dear friend that shared Your Word, and showed me, Your love. In Jesus holy and precious name, Amen.
