Who does Jesus offer salvation to?

The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans. John 4:9)
oh man oh man oh man….. I can’t get enough of John 4. For a few months now I have been drawn to this scripture and God has been revealing to me the massive truth bombs that are in it. In particular, how and to whom Jesus shared the message of Salvation with.
Salvation is for every single person. This is what has been constantly running through my mind over the past few months. The divides that we put on certain sins and the categories we put sinners into. As if there where different categories. Sin is sin. If something is a sin it leads to death. Full stop. That person you’re not sharing Jesus with because of their 'type' of sin is the same as your sin, they both lead to death. Sin doesn’t discriminate.
“God hates sin, but loves the sinner.” I have heard this saying a number of times, but my Pastor (Bernhard Wewege) r…

You need to say what you believe.

You need to say what you believe.
We’re not keeping this quiet, not on your life. Just like the psalmist who wrote, “I believed it, so I said it,” we say what we believe. And what we believe is that the One who raised up the Master Jesus will just as certainly raise us up with you, alive. Every detail works to your advantage and to God’s glory: more and more grace, more and more people, more and more praise! (2 Corinthians 4:13-15)
Our walk with Christ is an everyday, 24/7 event. That means you don’t just take Him, or as some people may think, meet Him at Church on Sunday’s. If you are a believer and have asked Jesus into your life to be your Salvation, He is with you always. That means you are a walking testimony to the death and resurrection of Jesus all the time. Every minute. You don’t have to be perfect. Its not you that you are presenting. ‘More and more grace (for your imperfections and display Gods power), more and more people (the people you share Jesus with), more and more pra…

Praise and Worship; the ultimate form of Evangelism.

Jesus was so alive and tangible to me when I first got saved I would be at home most nights and would worship and sing to God for however long hoping to experience just a little more of Him. I didn’t realise until recently the incredible importance and profound effects it had on my everyday life.
I would go to work and share the Gospel unashamedly. I would talk the ears off my work mates about the good things Jesus had done for my life (and theirs) and they would listen politely. Now I say ‘politely’ because a funny thing happened one day. We were out working on a job (I was landscaping) and we had a sub contractor working for us whom none of the guys had ever met. This guy was about 6ft 8” tall and extremely built. He was an amateur MMA (mixed martial arts) fighter and looked mean as. One day he came up to me while I was on my own working and he said to me “You’re the ‘God worshipper’ right?” I was a little frightened and almost said no I am not.
I responded with “what do you mean?”
