John 4:39-42 (NIV) Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, “He told me everything I ever did.” So when the Samaritans came to him, they urged him to stay with them, and he stayed two days. And because of his words many more became believers. 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.” These Samaritians were so hungry for Jesus to remain with them He said yes! He stayed two more days!
Because of their faith and desire to spend time with Him, they inevitably drew out miracles and teaching.
They were no longer reliant upon the testimony of the woman at the well but they saw and heard firsthand for themselves. It was a transforming encounter.
If we carry this same passionate desire for Jesus, we will arrest the presence of God over our lives and cause Him to remain with us.
Let your hunger for Jesus cause Him to stop in His tracks and remain with you today!
