Bible Verse Of The Month - June
“Then the woman left her water-jar and went back to the city. She said to the people, ‘Come and see a man who told me everything I have ever done! He cannot be the Messiah (or the Christ), can he?’ They left the city and were on their way to him.” John 4:28-30
Several times in the Gospels (particularly in St John’s account) we find one person inviting another person to ‘come and see’ Jesus - as the Samaritan woman did after she had encountered Him at Jacob’s well.
Inviting our friends and family members to discover something more about Jesus is as simple as that. We don't need to ‘know all the answers’, we just need to be willing to share a little of what Jesus means to us and invite others to discover His Good News for themselves.
Throughout June, then, shall we make ‘come and see’ our motivational phrase and basis of our daily prayer:
Lord Jesus, may I come to You in worship so that I see You for myself more clearly day by day. And help me to point others to You - to be willing to invite them to ‘come and see’ why You are my Good News.
The Revd Mary Barr.
