Sermon Preview – Week of July 31


This Sunday the preaching text will be John 4:1-30. As Jesus’ popularity rises word spreads to the Pharisees that Jesus’ ministry is growing larger than the ministry of John the Baptist. Jesus decides it is time to leave the rural confines of the Judean countryside and head north to Galilee. The path north to Galilee travels through Samaria, and it is here where Jesus has one of the most scandalous, confrontational, gracious and hope-filled conversations we see in this gospel account. We see here, in this text, as clearly as we do anywhere what it is Jesus has come to do. I think we should all take great care in giving our attention to the conversation Jesus is having with Samaritan woman because we are all more like her than we probably care to admit. We should also be thoroughly challenged to model our lives and conversations after Jesus. What is significant about where he is? What is significant about who he is talking to? What is significant about the way he is talking to her and what he’s talking to her about? Let this text instruct you in truth and righteousness this week. Let this text minister comfort to you heart this week. Let this text conform you to the image of our Lord and Savior as we grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ!
