All about Jesus! Lat night I was preparing for an assignment on John 4: 1-26. Going through this passage of scripture really opened my eyes. Numerous times the women at the well tried to put up barriers between herself and the truth (Christ). First she used cultural differences not to speak to Christ, then she put physical problems in place saying silly things like the well is too deep and Jesus had no vessel to draw the water out. He couldnt use hers because the Samaritans where 'unclean'. Then she used religious differences, falling back on her old faith in Jacob instead of Christ. Then she used the place where they worship as a barrier (sound familiar?). Jesus did not argue with her, but every time He brought her back to who He was and what He could do for her. He convicted her of sin and she was saved, but not only her but many others in her village. There is much more to this passage of scripture as the depth of it is incredible. I have only pointed out the issues which jumped out at me while studying it. How many of us also put up barriers between ourselves and Christ and how many of us put up barriers between ourselves as believers due to cultural, physical and religious beliefs? Lets tear down the barriers and give all the glory to Jesus. It is all about Him! He is the living waters! He is our saviour, He is God! Forget about denominational differences, forget about where you live or what you look like, forget about how much money you have, forget about where you choose to worship, forget about what language you speak, forget about what happened to you in the past, tear down the barriers which exist between you and Christ, tear down the barriers between you and your fellow christian. Burn your idols and destroy the strongholds in your mind. Jesus has overcome this world, His grace is enough!
