65. now we have heard for ourselves (John 4:42).
There is no pressure on God’s witness to convince. The woman shared her Jesus encounter with friends, but then they heard for themselves, and faith emerged. As we share our experience of Christ with others, we can be confident that He will reveal Himself to those who have heard us. We aren’t alone and God leaves no one to live off the excess of our experience. He will reveal Him to them as He has to us. But it is our story that causes them to seek Him out. Only when we tell what we have seen and heard will others begin to look and listen for His presence and voice in their lives.
