The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (who is called Christ). “When He comes, He will explain everything to us.” “I am He,” Jesus told her, “the One speaking to you.” John 4:25-26 HCSB
Years ago I witnessed a man destroying a home by knocking holes in the walls, burning holes in the carpet, and breaking bathroom fixtures. The police came to my house and asked me to identify the man by showing me three pictures and asking me to select the accused. I was then required to appear in court as a witness to identify the one who destroyed the house.
The woman that Jesus encountered at the well knew the Messiah was coming and that when He came he would explain everything. Jesus told her all about her life, her husbands, and had knowledge that the man with whom she was living was not her husband. Jesus also clearly identified that He was the Messiah. She was an eye witness of the prophesied Christ and ran into town to tell everyone that she had seen the Messiah and that He had told her everything about herself.
Challenge: Jesus is either who He said He is, the Messiah, or He is a liar. Do you recognize Jesus as your personal Savior and Redeemer? Jesus is the One and Only Son of God and He died on the cross for your sins so you can have forgiveness and eternal life.
