What was it about the death of Jesus that brought two men out of hiding? For some time both Joseph and Nicodemus had been secret disciples of Jesus. They had faith but only enough to follow him from a safe distance. When they saw Jesus die, they were radically changed. They came out of hiding to be all in for Jesus. John tells us what happened to them so we too can believe and live the all in life.
What truly satisfies the deepest cry of our soul is Jesus Christ the righteous who is the source of living water. Not money, career, education, power, pleasures, ungodly relationships or substance abuse.
In this narrative, Jesus proves that to us when the Samaritan woman who was a social outcast with a chequered past finds true fulfillment in the living water that Jesus offers. She went back to her own community to make Jesus known passionately.
The challenge before us is - are we passionate about Jesus and His Gospel?
Jesus can be confusing because he often does the opposite of what we expect. People usually desire power to control. But Jesus, who had all power, used his to serve and save others. Will you let him serve you?
Jesus teaches us to pray that we would have all we need today to exist on to tomorrow for God’s cause.
Christ has died. Christ has risen. What next? Christ will come again. In particular, when Jesus returns, he will come to judge the living and the dead.
