Resurrection Woman

“So the people came streaming from the village to see him” (John 4:30 NLT).

She would go to draw water in the heat of the day, when no one else was at the well. The other women went there earlier in the day and caught up on the village gossip. But they ostracized her because of the life she’d chosen to live.

But one day she arrived to find someone waiting for her: Jesus Christ, the very Son of God. He went out of His way to meet with her because unbeknownst to her, she had an appointment with God.

Jesus entered her world, and she heard the truth of His message. He told her how, if she drank of the water He gave her, she never would thirst again, and there would be a well of living water coming out of her life. So she believed.

And when she realized she had been talking with the Messiah, she left her water jar, ran back to the village, and said, “Come and see a man who told me everything I ever did! Could he possibly be the Messiah?” (John 4:29 NLT). The next verse tells us, “So the people came streaming from the village to see him” (verse 30 NLT).

We don’t know this woman’s name, but she was a resurrection woman, a woman who had been changed. She had a bad reputation, but the people in the village saw her passion and her excitement for what Christ had done for her. As a result, they came and wanted to see and hear Jesus for themselves.

Interestingly, 79 percent of unchurched people agree with the following statement: “I don’t mind talking to a friend about their faith if they really value it.” They want to see if you actually believe it yourself and value it yourself.

When you’re sharing your faith with others, there’s power in your personal story. You just need to be willing to share it.
