Personal Encounter with Jesus – Part I

Jesus Christ met a woman of Samaritan at the well outside the city. John 4:39-42 (NKJV) They both had a profound conversation, “I who speak to you, am He (the Messiah).”  Jesus said to her. The woman believed that Jesus is the Savior. Excited, she ran into the city and called people to come and meet Jesus. The city dwellers responded and heard Jesus spoke to them directly. Afterwards they said to the woman, we now believe Jesus, not because of what you said, but we have heard for ourselves, we believe, and we now know that this is indeed the Christ.

A Personal or an eyewitness account can best provide valid prove of the truth. Therefore, as we talk about Jesus today,  believers must be able to say like the Samaritans; “we ourselves have heard Him and we know that this is indeed [a]the Christ,”  Jesus said “… ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” Acts 1:8

The Holy Spirit can give you an eyewitness experience of Jesus, like the Samaritan woman who physically saw Jesus. Because the Spirit bears witness with our spirit. Romans 8:16 As a result when we say to people “Come and see” I have met Jesus; they must hear what the Holy Ghost teaches; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. Not …enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and power of the living God. 1 Corinthians 2:5,13 That is our mission at Cry for revival Gospel Ministry. This weekly program – Cry for revival prayer invites you to come and meet Jesus, hear his word, believe, and experience Him for yourself.

By the Grace of God from next week, if Christ tarries, we will take a closer look at what forms the Samaritan woman’s eyewitness report about Jesus. Some of the features I observed are: The personality of Jesus and His Word, the believe in Jesus, the believer’s testimony, and the Knowledge of who Jesus is. We shall see how these characteristics can make you experience Jesus, like the woman at the well. Join us weekly to share this experience. God bless you.
