I Am Messiah

John 4:25-26. The woman said to him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (the one called Christ); “whenever he comes, he will tell us everything.” Jesus said to her, “I, the one speaking to you, am he.”

Here, again, Jesus acknowledges Himself as THE Messiah (Savior, also called Christ). He acknowledges He came to tell us everything. The “everything” she wanted to know is everything about God and how He wants us to walk. Jesus did that. We can sum it up in Luke 10:27: “The expert answered, “ Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and love your neighbor as yourself.” When we follow these two commandments we are following all of God”s laws for us. Without His Holy Spirit dwelling in us it is impossible for us to follow these commands. We have trouble really loving ourselves, let alone our neighbor and we continually rebel against God flowing through our lives. Paul struggled with this as he said in Romans 7:15 “For I don’t understand what I am doing. For I do not do what I want-instead, I do what I hate.” Let’s continually pray for God’s Holy Spirit work these two commands in and through us.
