Take Time To Share Christ
Jesus purposely went out of His way, when he was traveling, to pass through Samaria because He knew that someone needed salvation. Jesus began talking to this woman by a well about everlasting water that only can be given by God. She kept changing the subject; however, Jesus always brought the conversation back to salvation. We, too, should always be looking for someone to share Jesus with and the free gift of eternal life that He offers. There will be times when we will be trying to witness to someone, and it seems like they keep changing the subject, or that they completely reject the Gospel. This should not deter us from being persistent in presenting the Gospel. Just because someone says that they aren't interested shouldn't be the last time we tell them about Jesus. The Bible says to go out into the highway and hedges and to compel them (Luke 14:23). We need to be persistent in presenting the Gospel and praying for their hearts to be softened to God. Purpose today to share the Gospel with those you meet persistently.
He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee. And he must needs go through Samaria. Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour. There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink. (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.) Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans. Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
John 4:3-10 (KJV)
