Savior of the World

Note from JesusDear Beloved,

You receive these notes because you love Me and want to walk with Me in your daily life. So I want to remind you of something very important. When you take the time to value someone, especially someone whom others discard and disregard as unimportant, I can do amazing things with that person. I AM the Savior of the world. But for the world to know that I AM the Savior of the world, each person needs to know that I came for her or for him!

My conversation with the woman at the well in Samaria led to many others in her village coming to faith in Me. Her painful story was known to the people of the village. Despite the villagers’ view of this woman’s past and their rejection of her, she still had influence with them after her interaction with Me. When I valued her personally, specifically both listening and speaking to her heart, she realized Who I AM. Then she shared this truth with everyone. The result? Many came to Me to find out for sure if I AM Who she thought Me to be. Then, after visiting with Me and hearing My teaching, they concluded that I AM indeed “the Savior of the world”!

Please be open to the people around you. Speak to them. Value them by asking questions about their lives. Listen carefully to their answers. Gently lead them to meet Me. You don’t have to convince them to believe. You don’t need to twist their arms so that they will listen. Value each one of them as a person the Father deeply loves. Invite each of them to “come and see” Who I AM. The kind of person you are and the way that you value each person you meet will open the door for each one to come and meet Me. Verses to LiveSo here is the amazing result of the woman at the well learning My true identity and finding hope for her life:The woman went back to the town, leaving her water pot behind. She stopped men and women on the streets and told them about what had happened.

Woman:I met a stranger Who knew everything about me. Come and see for yourselves; can He be the Anointed One?A crowd came out of the city and approached Jesus.
(John 4:28-30)

Many Samaritans from the village believed in Jesus because the woman had said:He told me everything I ever did!When they came out to see Him, they begged Him to stay in their village. So He stayed for two days, long enough for many more to hear His message and believe. Then they said to the woman:Now we believe, not just because of what you told us, but because we have heard Him ourselves. Now we know that He is indeed the Savior of the world.(John 4:39-42 NLT)Response in PrayerGracious God, open my eyes to the people who are around me each day but whom I do not notice and do not take the time to value. I want to value people so that I can invite them to “come and see” Who Jesus is. I pray this in Jesus’ name.
