And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world. John 4:42
The Samaritan Woman’s Confession
This was the confession of the Samaritan Woman to the folks in her city about Jesus. Actually, after a long and tiresome journey from Judea, Jesus came to Samaria and was sitting at Jacob’s well. It was there that He met this woman and shared about the Living Water. She was very happy to know and understand about the living waters Christ had; and therefore she ran back into the city to share the good news with her people. THOSE IN THE CITY, WHO ACCEPTED HIS WORDS RECEIVED THE WATERS OF LIFE.
Dear friend, whatever you commit into His hands in prayer, if you believe and pray, He is able to save it, keep it and carry it till the end. HE WILL DELIVER!! This was St.Paul’s confession as well because he recognised God as One who saves, keeps and carries till the end — … for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day. 2 Timothy 1:12.
Old Testament saint Job says, I know my redeemer liveth. Job 19:25. Jesus redeemed us by giving until the last drop of His blood. Sharing the revelation Job had, we the New Testament saints should never be troubled about anything. All our sufferings will come to an end when Jesus appears to take His bride away. 1 John 3:2. Hence, those who have this hope will keep themselves pure from the pollutions of the world.
May the Lord help us! 💕
