DIG for Sunday the 25th of January…..Jesus is for you, He is for everyone…..John 3 v 1 and John 4 v 7

It is quite sad to see when someone excludes himself (or herself) from the love of Jesus.

It may be because of feelings on unworthiness (thinking Jesus would not want to relate to them) or because of pride (thinking that they do not need Jesus).

Jesus wants to have a relationship with everyone; He came to earth to bring reconciliation and forgiveness so that every man could have the possibility of salvation (2 Peter 3 v 9).

There is no one too high or too low (in the eyes of the world) for Jesus.

In John 3 and 4 we see Jesus in relationship with two very different people.We see Nicodemus and the Samaritan woman.

He was in the highest strata of Jewish society, a Pharisee and a ruler (John 3 v 1).

She was in the lowest level of society in that cultural context; she was a woman, a Samaritan and a fornicator, indeed everything was going against her, yet Jesus came looking for her (John 4 v 4).

Jesus spoke the words of eternal life and truth to both people, and throughout His ministry we would see Him doing the same to many others.

I don’t think it is a coincidence that after His first miracle and His ministry started Jesus first encounters Nicodemus and the Samaritan woman.

This is a picture that everyone, no matter where in society, is welcome in His Kingdom.

Never think of yourself as being too high in society or too low for a relationship with Jesus; He loves us all no matter what social circumstances we are in.

Do not exclude yourself from the love of Jesus, and in the same manner do not exclude anyone else.

Never judge anyone else according to the ways of the world; rich men and poor men need Jesus, the powerful and the powerless need Jesus.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that Jesus came for every man, and thank you that you came for me”.

John 3 v 1…..There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews

John 4 v 7……There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink
