In today’s world we can’t escape from the constant abuse of people taking and misusing the name of Jesus. Yet, they would use their friends name in the same way, would they?!?
In the story of the samaritan women asking Jesus for a drink, Jesus first response was, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.” John 4:10
The reality is this: If you know Jesus as your best friend and not only that but see him in his right place – He is God, Emmanuel, God with us — reflect on that for a moment!
The God of heaven is with us… He desires to know us… I wonder if those people we hear daily misuse the name of the Lord, should we not pray for them to overcome their misgivings about Jesus and get to know him!?!
The samaritan women’s response, in the end, was to know and understand who Jesus was, so much it changed her misgivings and she told her friends! (v. 39)
What misgivings about Jesus are you living with today? Understand this: He loves you and is knocking on your heart to come in. Only you can let him in he won’t force himself on you!
