Read John chapter 4
John 4:42–They said to the woman, “We no longer believe just because of what you said; now we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this man really is the Savior of the world.”
The Samaritan woman had given a great testimony and had shared what she believed with her town. The people came to hear and see what she was talking about. Then, at the end, they made their own decision as to what they believed about Jesus. They couldn’t just rely on the woman’s faith and her testimony, they had to come to the place where they knew and recognized the importance of believing for themselves. When we are looking at what Jesus has done, are we focused on what JEsus has done in the lioves of others, or have we experienced Jesus working and moving in our own lives.
Father, I praise You for all that You have done in my life and in the lives of others. I know that You are able to do all that You desire and even more with everything that You have done. I thank You that You desire a personal relationship with me and that I don’t have to simply rely on the testimony of what You have done in the lives of others. Thank You for working in my life!
