Jesus’ Ministry Of Love

John 4:1-42
Here, we see Jesus’ ministry of love.
He brings the Samaritan woman out of her bondage to sin and into the joy of His salvation.
Jesus comes to the woman in love. His love overcomes cultural divisions. His love breaks down cultural barriers (9).
This is not simply the story of one woman. It is the story of ‘many Samaritans’ coming to faith in Christ (39). There are two ‘stages’ in their coming to faith.
* First, they ’believed in Him because of the woman’s testimony’ (39).
* Second, ‘they believed because of His Word’ (41).
The Samaritans came to trust Jesus as ‘the Saviour of the world’ (42). The woman said that ‘salvation is of the Jews’ (22). It is also ‘to the Greek’ (Romans 1:16). The Gospel is for all.
Pray that the human word will be empowered by the divine Word (1 Thessalonians 1:5; 2:13).
