Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, “He told me everything I ever did.”
John 4:39 (NIV)
There was a period in my life where I experienced death, divorce and their aftermath. I was experiencing the loss of one loved one right after another, all while navigating a traumatic divorce. Initially, I chose to be very private about what I was going through, but after starting to feel God’s power healing me from these challenges, I was moved to begin sharing my testimony.
The Samaritan Woman had a chance encounter with Jesus where He revealed that He was the Messiah on whom she has been waiting. This interaction with Jesus has opened her eyes to Jesus and has given her a testimony. What can we learn from this woman about our testimony?
There is power in our testimony because it provides proof of the realness of our God. After her conversation with Jesus Christ, the Samaritan Woman rushed back to town to share her experience! She said, “Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Messiah?” As a result of her testimony, many other Samaritans would come to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, and would believe, not just based on what she said, but came to know for themselves.
As a result of my testimony of how real God was in my life during tragedy, others have been encouraged to believe the same, and have been able to see God’s realness through their own challenging times. A friend said that my testimony has allowed other to taste and see that God is good (Psalms 34:8) through it all!
I encourage you to, as you are led by God, to share your testimony. It has the power to transform, empower and bless someone. Your testimony has the power to show them the Messiah.
