TOPIC: THE CHANGING POWER OF THE GOSPEL

TEXT: John 4: 27-38(KJV)
4:27. And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her?
4:28. The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men,
4:29. Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?
4:30. Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.

4:31. In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.
4:32. But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.
4:33. Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?
4:34. Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
4:35. Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

4:36. And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.
4:37. And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.
4:38. I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.

Anglican Daily Fountain 27th January 2024 STUDY:

Jesus was hungry but He had spiritual passions that needed to be fulfilled. His greatest desire was to do the will of the Father and to please Him. In His conversation with the Samaritan woman, He built a spiritual bridge to her -confronting her sin, and finally revealing to her that He was the Messiah.

The woman left her water pot and went and called people to come see Jesus. Her mundane task of fetching water was not that important any more. Her priorities, interests and desires changed. She came to the well to draw water and left the well without water.

The effects Jesus had on this woman spread to others and they too sought him. Thus, for the sake of the gospel, cultural barriers were broken. When the gospel is received and believed, it quenches thirst and satisfies hunger (vv.31-34).

The Gospel has been changing the world for over 2,000 years; have you allowed the gospel of Christ transform you? Remember, it still can and we are its voices. Every one of us can do our part. When we evangelise, it affects others around us. The gospel changes our passion and purpose. When God’s word is applied, it satisfies people’s hunger and thirst. Is that your experience?

PRAYER: Thank You, heavenly Father, for giving us Your word to change us.
