Bridges

In John 4:19-26 Jesus is revealing Himself as Messiah to the Samaritan woman. It is our responsibility to reveal Jesus to people we come in contact with every day.Bridges and walls are both necessary and both serve very different purposes. Walls divide. Bridges unite!

19 “Sir,” the woman said, “I can see that you are a prophet. 20 Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.” 21 “Woman,”Jesus replied, “believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 22 You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.” 25 The woman said, “I know that Messiah” (called Christ) “is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us.”  26 Then Jesus declared, “I, the one speaking to you—I am he.”

The Bible says, "We love because He first loved us," when we were still sinners! Pick up your cross. The Holy Spirit is the key. As we live obediently and intimately with Him, we will surely learn to love others, accepting them, as we radiate the love of Christ that we ourselves have experienced.

Be wise today and always - build a relationship bridge and share the Good News.
