The power of your testimony
John 4:28-30 (NLT)
The woman left her water jar beside the well and ran back to the village, telling everyone, “Come and see a man who told me everything I ever did! Could he possibly be the Messiah?” So the people came streaming from the village to see him.
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 Saviour of the world.”
This is a woman that has met with Jesus, had an encounter with Christ and knows her Saviour. He had spoken into her life and awakened her spirit. She is so on fire and taken back by His love, generosity and gentleness that she cannot help but testify in her village.
Scripture says that the people believed because of her testimony. It was her testimony that caused them to hunger after what she had just received. This fire then spreads across the town and before long many also hear from Jesus.
Have you met with Him, heard from Him or experienced Him? Then testify about your encounters with Jesus and together we will set towns and villages on fire for Jesus Christ.
As we give Him opportunity in our home towns by sharing our hunger for His teaching and presence, those around us will also declare “THIS MAN REALLY IS THE SAVIOUR OF THE WORLD!”
