Believers

Hi, God’s word for me today is in John 4:41-42 which says,

41 And because of his words many more became believers. 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.”

After the Samaritan woman went to the town and told the people about Jesus many believed in Him (because of the Samaritan woman’s testimony) and were saved. Then they came and begged Jesus to stay with them so He stayed with them for two days. The Bible says that because of His words many Samaritans believed and they told 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 Samaritans believed because of what Jesus said.

How is Jesus the savior of the world though? Well we were sinners in need of a savior, we were going to die with our sin and God’s wrath on us. But Jesus came down from heaven, because He loved us, and died for our sins on a cross. Then He rose from the grave on the third day and ascended into heaven to prepare a place for us and to mediate on our behalf. Jesus came down from heaven and took all of our sins and all of God’s wrath Him and then died on a cross so that we could live. Jesus loved us enough to die for our sins, He is the savior of the world. If we repent of our sins and believe in Christ then we are saved from our sins. The Samaritans were right, Jesus is the savior of the whole world.

We should trust in Jesus as our savior so that we can live. Jesus died for our sins and we should trust in Him. We should be like the Samaritans and believe in Jesus as the savior of the world. If we trust in Jesus then we will live, if we trust in Christ and repent of our sins then we will have eternal life. We should believe in Christ so that we can live, we should trust in Him and repent of our sins so that we can live. Thank You Jesus for coming down from heaven to die for our sins. We should trust in Christ.

Because of the Samaritan woman many people came to Christ. We should be like that, we should share our testimony with others so that they can come to Christ. We should help them see that Jesus is the savior of the world, we should help them repent of their sins and trust in Jesus so that they can live. We should share our testimony so that people can know the power of Christ, so that unbelievers will see that Jesus saves us. We should help others see that Jesus will take away their sins if they repent of their sins and trust in Jesus.

Thank You Jesus for coming down from heaven to atone for our sins. Thank You Jesus for loving us enough to die for us on a cross. Thank You Jesus for being the savior of the world, thank You for atoning for our sins by taking them and God’s wrath on You. Thank You Jesus for rising from the grave on the third day and then ascending into heaven to prepare a place for us and to mediate on our behalf. Thank You Jesus for everything that You have done for us.

Are you trusting in Jesus?

Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland.
