Passage: John 4:3-42
Duration: 36 mins 30 secs
The woman at the well is iconic. She comes alone in the heat of the day. She has bad blood and a questionable past. And yet, Jesus shows her warmth. He engages in a spiritual conversation that exposes her misplaced wants and misguided worship. He offers her living water. She takes the offer and tells her whole town about it. Her story starts a revival. Actually, Jesus started the revival by showing the kind of warmth he continues to show us today.

Testimony is what we say when we see God working. The Spirit does it. Jesus's first followers did it. We do it too. Part of the beauty of testimony is that it requires no special training, degree, or certification. You see; you speak. Of course, to talk about what you see God doing, first you have to pay attention. So, are you watching?

After looking at the "harassed and helpless" crowd and calling for prayer, Jesus summons his disciples by name to go, show, and tell about the inbreaking kingdom of God. They become short-term missionaries with a simple strategy. Unfortunately, certain opposition will come, both within the family and from the government. However, Jesus reassures the Twelve that God has their back and His Spirit will provide the words when they give witness. This Missionary Discourse has relevant application today for followers of Jesus. We too should go public and not panic, knowing God's got our backs.

Miracles are hard to believe in our secular age. We are trained to be skeptics, to view the world as a closed and often cold system. If God ever existed, he left us long ago, thinks the skeptic. But Jesus gives us a glimpse of "God with us" and engaged in powerful acts of healing, restoring, and welcome. He has authority over nature, demons, sin, and death. These are evidences he is Messiah, Son of God. And we should let the evidence address our inner skeptic, so we see the world buzzing with divine life.

Jesus called disciples to do good. Our good words and good works testify to the goodness of God. Sadly, in our current climate, the testimony of the church is less stellar. Worse yet, this turns people off God. Offering two timeless metaphors -- salt and light -- Jesus implores his followers to be engaged but distinct in the places God has se(nt) them. Where are you set? What good can you do?

Jesus sent his apostles to advance the good news of His resurrection and kingly reign. The church has lived as sent people ever since. Of course, being sent has a precedent in the Old Testament: Abraham, Moses, and Israel were sent people. And when sent people know their purpose and hear others praise God for their work, they fulfill their task with vigor.

Love is the highest, greatest, most comprehensive virtue. All the other "one another" commands flourish under the umbrella of love. Without love, we live out of mere duty or formality. To give love, we must first receive love from it's Divine source. This sermon invites us to receive God's love so we can give it to others.

God uses our lives as a glorious witness. Peter encourages his readers to think this way as they face slander and other forms of suffering as Christian outsiders. "Speak hope with your lives," he implores them. The challenge is as relevant today as ever.
