They said to the woman, “We no longer believe just because of what you said; now we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this man really is the Savior of the world.” John 4:42
My prayer has always been that people would see Jesus in me, and would want what I have for themselves. In spending time with the Lord this morning I came across this verse. It's so beautiful. In John, Chapter 4, we tend to focus more on what the Samaritan woman experienced that day. She encountered Jesus and her life was forever changed!
This morning I found myself focusing more on those who heard her testimony and believed. (Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in Him because of the woman's testimony. John 4:39) Her experience with Jesus caused her to tell others and their lives were forever changed!
I don't want my life-story to be about me. I want it to be about what Christ and what He has done in my life. I'm not here writing about my military life experience really. I'm writing about what I know God himself did in our lives to lead us to this place, and what He continues to do.
The greatest story I can ever tell is how Jesus Christ changed my life and my husband's life. We are on this path because years ago we encountered the Savior. When Jesus reveals Himself to you, you realize He sees you just the way you are. He knows everything about you, even your sin, yet He loves you unconditionally. There's no greater love than this. Jesus died on the cross for our sin, not His own for He was without sin. (This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 1 John 4:10)
If you're searching for truth, my prayer is that you found it here. If you are seeking answers to your empty heart, having tried everything to fill it, Jesus is reaching out right now. If I can help lead you to the Savior, let me know! I would love to share more of what God has done in my life, and lead you to experience the same thing. Leave me a comment with a way to get in touch with you. It's the most important decision you'll ever make, and your life will forever be changed!
