Come, see a man

Welcome, friends, to my new blog. The purpose of this blog is to share experiences from my daily life. I would like to focus particularly, but not exclusively, on experiences I have of Christ. This brings me to the title of the blog, which comes from John 4. This chapter contains is the story of the Samaritan woman at the well. There, she met the Lord Jesus, and he turned her from drinking the unsatisfying water of the world to drinking the eternal water of life. This experience of Christ had a profound impact on her and of course, she wanted to tell everyone! But she didn't just tell the people in her city what had happened. She told them to "Come, see a man who told me all that I have done..." (John 4:29) Her experience caused her to show others Christ himself! In the same way, I would like to share my experiences not just to share them, but so that other people would see the Lord Jesus Christ.

After reading this post I read John Chapter 4 and appreciated that when the woman asked a question in her mind in 4:20, the Lord immediately turned her to her spirit (4:21-24). This is a contrast between the tree of knowledge and the tree of life.

I also laughed at this little exchange in 4:31-33: In the meantime, the disciples urged Him, saying, Rabbi, eat. But He said to them, I have food to eat that you do not know about. The disciples therefore said to one another, Has anyone brought Him something to eat?

And if you read on, you can see her situation caused so many to see the Christ! Good post, Leon. :)

Amen! The real impact and the issue of us drinking of the Lord is that we overflow to others! "Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of this water that I will give Him - he shall by no means ever thirst again, but the water he drinks will become in him a fountain gushing up into eternal life!" - we drink, and this living water gushes up into eternal life! We drink of the Lord, and He springs up from us as many rivers towards the ones around us! Amen!
