Assurance of salvation | Week of February 18th

John 4:42, Then they said to the woman, “Now we believe, not because of what you said, for we ourselves have heard Him and we know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world.”

From the sermon series: The activity of the Lord

This verse is from the experience of Jesus meeting the Samaritan woman at the well. After she perceived that He was the Messiah and told the others in her city about Him, Jesus was invited to stay with them. When Jesus left, the Samaritan people of the city believed in Christ as the Savior because of what He spoke to them.

Take some time to read the full story of the woman at the well (John 4:1-42). At first, when she speaks with Jesus, she does not see Him as the Messiah. It is when He speaks truth to her (i.e. He can offer living water, He knows that she has led a sinful life and had five husbands, He speaks of true worshipers) that she begins to understand that she is talking to someone very important. Whether you have been a follower of Jesus your whole life or only a short while, there has probably been a moment where you have been confronted with a truth about God or about the world that stuck with you. Maybe you heard this truth in a divine service, or heard it from a friend, or discovered it after living through something. But after learning this truth, something in you changes. And as you think on this truth, it shapes the way you feel and look at the world. All of God’s truths have the ability to transform us in this powerful way if we are open to the change.

Journal Prompt: What truth has God spoken to you that has really resonated with you? Try to share that truth with one person this week.
