English Sermon (03/14/21) – B.L.E.S.S – Jesus’ Mission Our Mission (John 4:1-26)
Do you ever feel like you face the same routine everyday? Same school, same job, same family, same friends, etc. For many of us, we are often doing the things we “have to” do, but what would it look like if we switch from just surviving into truly thriving? What if instead of doing things we “have to” do, we turn to things we “HAVE TO” do with passion and purpose? In John 4, Jesus decided that he and his disciples HAD TO pass through Samaria because his mission was to reach Samaritans through a Samaritan woman. At the well, Jesus told the Samaritan woman that he can give ‘living water’ for which she will never thirst again and also revealed to her that he is the Messiah. She believed and became a witness to others. Through her testimony, many who lived in that town also came to know Jesus. Because Jesus’ mission was to reach others, all of us who claim to be followers of Christ also have the same mission to do so. We can love others and fulfill our mission by REACH-ing, RESTORE-ing and REPRODUCE-ing.
