Have you witnessed Jesus’ miracle? Have you became one of Jesus’ witnesses? Have you give a testimonial witnessing Jesus’ miracle in your life?
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
In this verse, it’s clearly shown that we as the chosen ones, the holy nation, the people that belong to God, may declare, may give a testimony – a truth – a fact of how God has picked us out of the misery and into His blessing. We all are in the darkness before we say that God is our savior, we did all the sins without thinking, we are still imperfect humans but now that we’re in God, we won’t fear anything.
7 When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her,”Will you give me a drink?” 8 (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food) 9 The Samaritan woman said to him,”You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with the Samaritans)
Then the Samaritan woman are blessed by God in the following verse because she believed in Him. The Samaritan woman has five husbands and was living with a man who is not her husband, so in short, she has been seen as a (pardon me) prostitute who live in a wrong way of life. But let’s see what happens after she has sought God and receive God as her saviour.
28 Then, leaving her water jar, the woman went back to the town and said to the people, 29 “Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Christ?” 30 They came out of the town and made their way toward Him
39 Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the womans’s testimony, “He told me everything I ever did.” 40 So when the Samaritans came to Him, they urged Him to stay with them, and he stayed for two days 41 And because of his words many more became believers.
A woman who is living in lust and saved by God is able to then gave testimony to her fellow Samaritans. And you know what? A lot of people believed in God because of her and they are saved because of her. Imagine what we can do, if we testify and the testimonials got spread around. Because, a testimonial can’t be hold and will always spread around.
27 As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, calling out, “Have mercy on us, Son of David!” 28 When he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” “Yes Lord”, they repleid. 29 Then he touched their eyes and said,” According to yout faith will it be done to you”;
8 Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him. 9 Fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him lack nothing
We need to taste and see for ourselves that our LORD is good that HE is GREAT. If we believe and have faith in him, we won’t fear anything, we will be able to do everything and lack nothing. Have a blessed day!
