Main Passages: Jude 1  John 4

This message of God’s Good News urges believers to contend FOR the faith once delivered to the Church, in participation with Jesus Christ!, and AGAINST the ungodly and cultural pressures and influences of our current times!

This is a Gospel message to a specific congregation of our times facing issues similar to congregations in other times as seen in the scriptures, particularly the Books of Jude and John. In this series, we make Christ-centered comparisons with the congregation in Jude and the Samaritan woman of Jesus’ time in John 4 to our particular congregation. You may, of course, see that the Church (maybe your local congregation!), especially in the United States, faces these same issues in general, and also be helped by WHO is proclaimed.

In the light of Jesus and the God revealed in Him (and over the course of 12 messages), we address today’s big questions regarding relationships, race, marriage, love, gender/sexual identity, politics, and worship and witnessing to the Father and Son through the Christian faith.

Foundational to this message is the urgent call for us to contend for the Christian faith (in which we participate in with Jesus Christ!) primarily by continuing to ask for and receive together from our Father – His Holy Spirit! He is WHO the Father most desires to pour out upon his human children! Even so, come Holy Spirit of the Father and Son, come!

How The Triune God Encounters Ordinary People!

Main Passage: John 4:1-42

“Jesus had a conversation with a Samaritan woman He met at the well of Jacob. In their discussion, Jesus claimed to have the living water that will satisfy the soul, and He revealed the truth that God seeks people to worship Him in Spirit and truth. As Jesus’ followers, we resemble the Samaritan woman as we exalt Jesus for who He is and then tell others about the living water He offers.” – The Gospel Project

Theological Theme:

God- [Father, Son, and Spirit], is seeking true worshipers who worship Him in Spirit and truth.

Christ Connection:

Jesus told the Samaritan woman that a day was coming when worshipers would not focus on the physical location of Jerusalem or the mountain but worshipers would worship in Spirit and truth. Because of Jesus’ death and resurrection, and ascension, our worship is no longer confined by geography. We worship Jesus as the Savior of the whole world.

Missional Application:

God, in the Holy Spirit, calls us to open our eyes to see the harvest of people across the world who need the living water that only Jesus Christ can provide.

“How does The Triune God encounter ordinary people? The Father, Son and Spirit God encounters us as one who, when we’re trapped in immorality, when we’re social outcasts, when we have no direction in our life and when we’re “EEKING” out in an ordinary mundane routine day after day life, HE IS THE ONE who can come in – and so often does – and turns our life around and may even make us like He did this woman. He made this immoral woman the first evangelist in her hometown and saw many people come to faith. Don’t you give up on anybody let alone yourself, for The Lord God- Father, Son, and Spirit is pulling off the impossible!

He [Jesus] has not allowed ANYTHING He cannot redeem, so receive Him, come, ask Him for a drink and He’ll put in you living waters that will flow out of you into eternal life. Meaning, you’ll have a relationship eternally with His Father in The Holy Spirit and with everyone else.” – Pastor Timothy Brassell
