#006: Good News and Transformation (Part 2 of 2) [PODCAST]

This podcast session features the LAST part of my LAST talk in the series, “Being Disciples, Making Disciples”. This talk is entitled, “Good News and Transformation”.

Jesus engages in a provocative conversation with a Samaritan woman at the well. Jesus has taught us three important things as follows:

  1. Jesus asks us to follow Him to challenging places
  2. Jesus models how ordinary conversation at a well, can become extraordinary if we talk about spiritual things, namely Jesus.
  3. Jesus illustrates that the Gospel has the power to cross every boundary, like gender, ethnic, and social boundaries.

The rest of this conversation will be intense and revealing!

Main Outline

Main Text: John 4

  1. Following Jesus can be challenging, and will push us out of our comfort zones
  2. God’s Love and His Good News can cross any kind of boundary, as long as we are willing to go and share
  3. This Good News of Jesus’ love for the world can transform entire communities if we don’t miss the opportunity.

Reflection Questions

  1. When was the last time your faith in Jesus got you out of your comfort zone?
  2. Will you be willing to share God’s love across any kind of boundary? Social, ethnic, gender, etc.?
  3. How can you be more like the Samaritan Woman in this story? What is God saying to you?
