Make Samaria a Must

Extended Reading: John 4:4-42

“…And He had to pass through Samaria…” John 4:4 (NASB)

The human and spiritual needs of man are all the same—human! Since the fall of man, the active stain of sin has tainted how we view and treat one another starting with Adam and Eve. When questioned about his own sin, Adam went from being pure in his thinking and behavior to being prideful and self-preserving towards Eve (Gen.3:9).

The so called “racism “in our land today must be rightly defined by God and not man. God calls it SIN! There is no resolute narrative to be had for racism that will unite men’s hearts, but God’s love guarantees unity between like-mindedness of those who belong to Him!
JESUS is His name! (Acts 4:12).

Jesus’ purposed in His heart to go to and through Samaria (John 4:4), not for racial reconciliation but for eternal salvation; not for just a woman but for a village! The ministry of reconciliation (2 Cor. 5:18-19) must intentionally go through “racism” with the living water of eternal life that delivers and heals (1 Pet.2:24). “Systemic prejudice” (practicing preferential and partial treatment) and social injustices seen in society, are not new, and as Jesus did in Samaria, we too must go, through America and the world!

You cannot fix a sin problem with policies, laws, or movements, we must take the “Good News” of the “perfect law of liberty in Christ to a dying world (James 1:25)! Any nation consumed by a focus on “skin color”, white privilege, black lives matter, white supremacy, social injustices, etc. (1Cor. 3:19) must see the love of God in operation by those who know Him (John 13:34-35).

True believers must go into the divided, disconnected “Samaria” of home, church, community, state, nation, and the world being “light and salt”! We must light the path and preserve the way until hearts are drawn to Jesus, for He already said, “…if I be lifted up, from the earth, will draw all men to Myself…” John 12:32

Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to prepare my heart to be intentional with your word and purpose as you guide me to and through my “Samarias”.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
