Changed people tell their story. There was a story told about a Samaritan woman’s encounter with Jesus at Jacob’s well (John 4). Jesus was tired from the journey and asked her for a drink. She was puzzled that this Jew had engaged Himself into a conversation with a Samaritan, for the Jews and Samaritans had no dealings with each other. The woman listened intensely to the words of Jesus. He offered her living water, and she asked Him to give her such water that she would never thirst again. Like the world, this Samaritan woman was thirsty for the truth. He gave her the truth, in spite of your five husbands and the man you’re living with – if you give it all up you can have a drink of this water and never thirst again. From that moment she believed on Him, ran back to the village and told her story to everyone that would listen, “come see a man that has told me everything about myself, could this be the Messiah?”


The villagers came and some believed because of her report (she told her story),  others believed because of the words from Jesus. Jesus disciples went to the village for physical food and the Samaritan woman went to the village with spiritual food. The village was changed because of one adulteress Samaritan woman. Changed people change people by telling their story. And they overcame by the blood of the lamb and the words of their (her) testimony (Revelation 12:11). Those that hunger and thirst for righteousness shall be filled. Let’s stay thirsty and live to make a difference, and not to make a living.
