John Ch 4 V 27-42

27Just then his disciples returned and were surprised to find him talking with a woman. But no one asked, “What do you want?” or “Why are you talking with her?”

28Then, leaving her water jar, the woman went back to the town and said to the people, 29“Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Christ[b]?” 30They came out of the town and made their way toward him.

31Meanwhile his disciples urged him, “Rabbi, eat something.”

32But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.”

33Then his disciples said to each other, “Could someone have brought him food?”

34“My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. 35Do you not say, ‘Four months more and then the harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. 36Even now the reaper draws his wages, even now he harvests the crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together. 37Thus the saying ‘One sows and another reaps’ is true. 38I sent you to reap what you have not worked for. Others have done the hard work, and you have reaped the benefits of their labor.”

39Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, “He told me everything I ever did.” 40So when the Samaritans came to him, they urged him to stay with them, and he stayed two days. 41And because of his words many more became believers.

42They said to the woman, “We no longer believe just because of what you said; now we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this man really is the Savior of the world.”
.  God has plans for us, and we should carry them out with no hesitation and no questions asked, to know that God always wants the best for us. Through us God is sowing the seeds of faith into the non-believers, so that they may have eternal life. The prophets have done the hard work, spreading the word that the Messiah was coming down to earth, and after Jesus died for our sins, our work had become much easier. We only have to accept that Jesus died on the sins for us, and we shall have eternal life.

.  When we have accepted Jesus and we begin to live our lives glorifying God, it is testimony that Jesus in our savior. To all of our friends and the people we meet, they may accept Jesus just because of the changes that we have. In sowing the seeds of faith in these people, they may one day come to know God, and come to know just how much the God of the universe loves us.
