Here’s a question to chew over? When did Jesus’ first followers become ‘Christians’?I’m talking about folks like Peter, James, John, Matthew, Mary, Martha, and many others whose stories are told in the Gospel accounts. Just think about it for a second!
Jesus didn’t go through Samaria because it was His only option. He went to Samaria because he really wanted to go. He knew an encounter was about to happen that would change, not just the life of this woman, but a whole village.
Anytime we come to grapple with the Bible we want to challenge ourselves to own these two key questions. Questions that force us to move beyond being a fan, to becoming a follower of Jesus.
