The Woman’s Witness

http://ref.ly/Jn4.27-30

After Jesus reveals Who He is to the Samaritan woman, Jesus’ disciples return with food. They were surprised that Jesus was talking to her because of the prejudice of the Jews against the Samaritans. They did not question Jesus or the woman. The woman did not hold to herself what Jesus had revealed to her. She left her waterpot, and she went back to her city. She wanted to tell her village whom she had met by the well. Her witness is short and to the point. Note what she says.

John 4:29 (KJV)
(29) Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?”

As I said, her witness is short and to the point. This verse sends us back to verse 25. She knew that Messiah would come Who’s Name would be Christ–the anointed one. He would reveal all things. Note verse 39 of this same chapter.

John 4:39 (KJV)
(39) And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did.”

Not only was this woman saved, but also her entire village received Jesus as their Lord and Savior. What a witness! This chapter truly reveals Jesus as the Soul Winner. Because of her witness, the people came from the  village to see Jesus. Will our witness move people to come to the church to hear more about Jesus? If we set up a cell group, will the people come if our witness is effective? How will your testimony and witness encourage people? Sheep beget sheep.
