But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. (John 4:14) 


What became of the Samaritan woman after her encounter with Jesus? 


The Samaritan woman encountered Jesus at the well of Jacob. 


  • First, Jesus told her of her sin. 
  • Second, she was humble and confessed to him she was a sinner. 
  • Third, she praised him as the prophet of God. 


The next part of this story is a model we should all aspire to. 


“And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did.” (John 4:39) 


The woman at the well ran to her people and evangelized. 


She told everyone the good news of her forgiveness, and the man who saw her sin and loved her just the same. 


Has my salvation rippled out on those around me? 


Jesus, give me opportunities to tell other people about you today that they would be blessed, as I am blessed.


When I read this devotion I felt it needed to be shared. I pray you stop and ask yourself that very question today, has your salvation rippled out on those around you? Use every opportunity given to tell others about Christ and all He has done for you. Psalm 44:8, In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for ever. Selah. 


Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord! 

Good News!

Behold upon the mountains the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace! . . .(Nahum 1:15)

I recently read. World news bombards us from the Internet, television, radio, and mobile devices. The majority seems to describe what’s wrong—crime, terrorism, war, and economic problems. Yet there are times when good news invades the darkest hours of sadness and despair—stories of unselfish acts, a medical breakthrough, or steps toward peace in war-scarred places.

The words of two men recorded in the Old Testament of the Bible brought great hope to people weary of conflict.

While describing God’s coming judgment on a ruthless and powerful nation, Nahum said, “Behold upon the mountains the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace!” (Nah. 1:15). That news brought hope to all those oppressed by cruelty.

A similar phrase occurs in the book of Isaiah: “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation . . .” (Isa. 52:7). 

Nahum and Isaiah’s prophetic words of hope found their ultimate fulfillment at the first Christmas when the angel told the shepherds, “And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:10–11).

The most important headline in our lives every day is the very best news ever spoken—Christ the Savior is born! Amen!

Have a wonderful day in The Lord!

Today’s Reading is Nahum 1:7-15
