Series: Sharing the Story
Category: The Mission, Gospel, The Church
Speaker: Blake Godsey
In this sermon, we looked at John chapter 4 to see how Jesus shared the hope of His coming with a Samaritan woman. Jesus is at the center of the Gospel message, and He is also the best example of what it means to share the Good News with others. While it would have been taboo in first century society for Jesus to converse with this Samaritan woman, He ignored man-made regulations to boldly engage her. Jesus shared truth with the woman while also being sensitive to her story and struggle, as He was so often with those who were broken and humble. Ultimately, Jesus offered her hope: He was the long-promised Messiah. As we share His story, we can follow Jesus' example by being bold, sharing truth, showing sensitivity, and offering the hope of Christ.
