Showers of Blessing!

“Come, see a Man who told me all things that I ever did. Could this be Christ?” John 4:29

These are the words of the Samaritan lady whose life was completely changed because of an encounter with Jesus Christ at Sychar. This lady met Jesus at Jacob’s well and it was the turning point in her life. All of us might still remember how we all turned to Jesus. She did a wonderful job in spreading the word about Jesus Christ and thus turned many more in the city to Jesus.

In verse 28 we read, “The woman then left her water pot, went her way into the city, and said to the men… The water pot was a hindrance for her to spread the word about Jesus Christ. It must have been heavy to carry around. I have often thought that some of us who are called to spread the Word of God are carrying similar water pots. The water pot can resemble our jobs, future of our children, financial matters and so on. It can drift us away from our call to spread the Word of God even without our knowledge.

My dear friend, as the Word says in Matthew 6:33, “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”

Be Blessed!
