     Joseph Price Devotional , 17, November 2017-  From Self-Conscious to Savior-Conscious


    Topic: From Self-Conscious to Savior-Conscious

    Let’s return to the story of the woman of Samaria, the one whom Jesus went deliberately to meet. This
    woman had a past that she was terribly ashamed of, which is why she came at noontime to draw water.
    She didn’t want to meet anybody. What she didn’t know was that Jesus was there and He wanted to
    meet her He hadn’t come all that way to embarrass, judge, or mock her. Read the account in John
    chapter 4 for yourself. Jesus drew her in with His love, grace, and compassion. She never felt exposed
    or ill at ease in His presence.

    When she said that she had no husband, Jesus didn’t call her out and humiliate her. Instead,
    knowing that she was self-conscious and insecure about her background, He commended her twice by
    saying, “
    You have well said

    , ‘I have no husband,’ for you have had five husbands, and the one whom
    you now have is not your husband; in that
    you spoke truly
    ” (John 4:17–18, emphasis mine).

    He sandwiched what He already knew about her between two compliments! Jesus must have spoken to her
    with so much compassion and love
    in His eyes, and with no judgment or sarcasm in His voice, that it
    caused this woman to let down her defenses and open up to Him.

    By the time she left His presence, this self-conscious lady who once feared meeting people was so
    occupied with Jesus’ love and acceptance that she became an evangelist of Jesus and His grace. She
    went back to the village and testified about Jesus (to the very people she had been terrified of before),
    and the Bible records that “many of the Samaritans of that city believed in Him because of the word of
    the woman who testified, ‘He told me all that I ever did’ ” (John 4:39).

    In the same way, my friend, Jesus is not out to embarrass you today. He is here to meet you right
    where you are. He knows all that you have ever done and loves you with an everlasting love. Allow
    His love to change and transform you from within, just like it did for the woman at the well.

    Perhaps like the Samaritan woman, you know what it’s like to look for love in all the wrong places.
    Today Jesus offers you true intimacy that fully satisfies every aching need. He offers you a deep sense
    of rest that can only be found in His perfect and unconditional love. Perhaps you’ve had a past that has
    imprisoned you in shame and self-loathing.

     Perhaps you’ve allowed the things that you have done to convince you that you’ll never have God’s acceptance or love. If you’ve always only known or heard of a hard and judgmental God, a God who holds every misdeed you’ve committed against you, then I challenge you to encounter the real Savior who has already forgiven you and invites you to discover,
    taste, and experience His unfailing love.

    It doesn’t matter how ugly a mess your life may have spiraled down into. If you will open your heart to Jesus and allow His love to heal you, He can change the trajectory of your life and give you a fresh start and fulfilling future. Everything can change for the better when you begin to believe right about His love for you and learn to draw upon it!
    Everything can change for the better when you begin to believe right about His love for you
    and learn to draw upon it!
