Lift Your Eyes

May 12, 2024

Book: John

Scripture: John 4

Jesus burns with great compassion for you and longs for you to do the same for others by making him known. To do this effectively, we need to see the heart and passion of Jesus.

This is illustrated clearly in John 4. In verses 1-15, we read that: Jesus was intentional and compassionate in his posture toward the woman at the well. He approached her with grace and truth, overcoming barriers of racism, religious misunderstanding, gender discrimination, and cultural judgments. He then revealed the kingdom-vision to the people she witnessed to.

Similarly, we should pray for new eyes to see the harvest. We should allow others to help us. We ought to be curious about others’ lives and to simply invite people into our lives.
