Jesus: The Savior Of The World | The Gospel According to John (Part 10) | Tom Stephen
This Sunday, we will continue our sermon series from the Gospel of John and focus on chapter 4, verses 27-42.
In this chapter, we see Jesus conversing with a woman at a well in Samaria. Despite cultural barriers and social norms, Jesus breaks these boundaries to share the good news of salvation with her. We see how His message transcends race, gender, and social status and that the gospel is for everyone.
As the conversation progresses, the Samaritan woman's heart is transformed by Jesus' love and message. She becomes a powerful evangelist, telling others about the Messiah who changed her life. Her transformation shows us how encountering Jesus can change our hearts and equip us to share the good news with others.
Notably, we see the Samaritans, who were considered outcasts by the Jews, proclaiming that Jesus is the savior of the world. In some ways, this passage marks the beginning of the Great Commission, where Jesus commands His disciples and us to go and make disciples of all nations.
This passage highlights the importance of reaching the lost around us and how we can share the gospel message with others, just as Jesus did. We can learn from Jesus' approach, his love, patience, and sensitivity to the world's needs.
