LIKE MAYBE, JOHN 3:16:
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only
begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
OR MAYBE, THIS PASSAGE IN JOHN 11:
said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
26And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest
27She saith unto him,
Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.
A WORD OF TESTIMONY FROM YOU WOULD BE GOOD -- THAT JESUS CHRIST IS THE REAL THING!
HE GIVES ETERNAL LIFE.
We never know when we might be the last chance someone has of hearing the Gospel.
Jesus said there are rewards waiting.
Jesus gives us a great evangelism example in the
famous "woman at the well."
I include all of John 4, but highlight some verses I want
2(Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,)
3He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.
4And he must needs go through Samaria.
5Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob
gave to his son Joseph.
6Now Jacob's well was there.
Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.
7There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give
me to drink.
8(For his disciples were gone away unto
the city to buy meat.)
9Then saith the woman of Samaria
unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings
with the Samaritans.
10Jesus answered and said unto
her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him,
and he would have given thee living water.
saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?
12Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank
thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?
answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
14But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that
I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
15The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.
16Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and
17The woman answered and said, I have
no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:
18For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou
19The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive
that thou art a prophet.
20Our fathers worshipped
in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
21Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain,
nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
23But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and
in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
25The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he
will tell us all things.
saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.
upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest
thou with her?
28The woman then left her waterpot,
and went her way into the city, and saith to the men,
see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?
30Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.
31In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.
32But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.
33Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?
34Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and
to finish his work.
35Say not ye, There are
yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are
white already to harvest.
37And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.
38I sent you to reap that whereon
ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.
39And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified,
He told me all that ever I did.
when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days.
41And many more believed because of his own word;
42And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying:
for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.
43Now after two days he departed thence, and went into Galilee.
44For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in his own country.
45Then when he was come into Galilee, the Galilaeans
received him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went unto the feast.
46So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. And
there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum.
he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down, and heal
his son: for he was at the point of death.
said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe.
49The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die.
50Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken
unto him, and he went his way.
51And as he was now
going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth.
enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left
53So the father knew that it was at the same
hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his whole house.
54This is again the second miracle that Jesus did, when he was come out of
Judaea into Galilee.
God has given us the ministry of reconciliation.
TEXT BELOW SAYS WE ARE "AMBASSADORS FOR CHRIST."
We should do what
2 Corinthians 5 says:
if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
18And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us
the ministry of reconciliation;
19To wit, that God was
in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word
20Now then we are ambassadors for Christ,
as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
21For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of
God in him.
