Gotta Tell Somebody

The moment we’re touched by grace and brought to the foot of the Cross, our attitudes and perspectives begin to change. Many of the things we once loved we now hate! Where before we worked to keep God at arms-length by staying away from his “people,” we now gravitate toward those who embrace God-centric thinking and a biblical worldview. Something inside of us is different. It’s like we have a new set of eyes and a new processor that uses a different formula for interpreting data. Wow!

And the very first thing we want to do is tell somebody!

Jesus’ encounter with the woman at the well resulted in her wanting to share her experience with others.

“As soon as she had found the Savior the Samaritan woman brought others to Him. She proved herself a more effective missionary than His own disciples. The disciples saw nothing in Samaria to indicate that it was an encouraging field. Their thoughts were fixed upon a great work to be done in the future. They did not see that right around them was a harvest to be gathered. But through the woman whom they despised, a whole city full were brought to hear the Savior. She carried the light at once to her countrymen” (Desire of Ages, p.195).

If we no longer have an urgent desire to tell others about Jesus, then we’ve obviously lost the “wow.” Which means it’s time to go back to the “well” to be renewed, transformed and amazed!
