This Sunday – Oct 30

I grew up thinking that Jesus was like David Carradine in the Kung Fu TV show, minus the neat martial arts.  Meek, mild, and very understated.  A veiled strength, but basically no emotions. 

 

So, you can imagine that it gets my attention when a story depicts Jesus as so pumped up with excitement he can hardly contain himself.

 

At least that’s what seems to happen in John 4:27-42.  Jesus goes from being worn out from travelling to so excited that he has lost his appetite. 

 

What happened?

 

A conversation.

 

One he started.

 

One that shouldn’t have happened at all.

 

But, Jesus took a step towards an out-of-bounds person.  And Jesus was plenty pumped up with what happened next.

 

This Sunday, the 3rd Sunday in a 30-Day Focus: Learning to Love on Purpose we will see what can happen to a whole community because of one conversation.

 

We never know the full potential of just one loving step towards another. 

 

This Sunday we learn from Jesus what’s worth getting excited about.
