Principles from John’s Gospel
Sharing our personal experience with Jesus actually builds a bridge of faith for those who do not believe and helps them borrow our faith for their first steps toward Jesus.
The kind of worship God is looking for will make most of us uncomfortable and at the outer boundary of what is a normal experience for us. True worship begins from a place of Truth and commitment to the Spirit.
Communicating with unbelievers about Jesus, the Kingdom, and spiritual things can be challenging when their worldview perspective raises significant obstacles to having a real exchange. Jesus by-passed obstacles and gave the woman at the well a real encounter that changed her life.
We were created to live out our identity under the blessing of God as we fulfill our divine assignments in life. This puts spiritual fuel in our tanks and creates the sense of fulfillment that comes from being part of something larger than ourselves.
