WALKING WITH JESUS: The Master Soul-Winner

Updated: Sep 6


Bible Text: John 4.1-26 Scripture Reading: John 4:1-15


As followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, we have a responsibility not only to share the good news about the Messiah but also to serve as witnesses of His marvelous and gracious deeds. Challenges may come but these should not cause us to be silent but instead motivate us to talk more about Jesus realizing that in doing so, we take part in the redemption of people. Our Lord promises to be with us wherever we go and are (Matthew 28:20) so this should give us the courage to share becoming aware that He is present and watching. In today’s Bible text we will glean five evangelism principles that could help us in our Christian living as we walk with the Master Soul-Winner: 1. Show great CONCERN for the person you intend to share Jesus with. The Lord showed genuine concern for the Samaritan woman and did overcome the barriers that existed (vv.1-4). “Now he had to go through Samaria.” (v.4) 2. Work with a strong sense of COMPULSION to share. Jesus was determined to provide opportunity to communicate the gospel to the woman by the well (vv. 5-6). “…Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about the sixth hour.” (v.6) 3. Look for a meaningful and genuine CONNECTION with the person. Jesus created soul-hunger by provoking inquiry and started the conversation by asking a favor (vv.7-9). “Will you give me a drink?” (v.7b) 4. Be COURTEOUS in your approach. The Lord was tender, sensitive and compassionate in His communication with the woman (vv.10-12). “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink...” (vv.10a) 5. Make a purposeful CONCLUSION in your presentation of the gospel. Jesus concluded only when He had fully revealed Himself as Savior and Lord (vv. 13-15). “The water I will give him will become in him a spring of living water welling up to eternal life.” (v.14b)
