This week we are focussing on the same word that Bethany Lutheran Primary School are focussing on throughout the year, and that is the word ‘inspire’.
And to ‘inspire’ is literally to ‘breathe into’ someone or something, and so we look at the greatest role model of inspiration, Jesus, and what he breathed into others.
John records Jesus meeting with the Samaritan woman at the well, and in this encounter, with a person who had a past that some might call questionable, Jesus ‘breathes into’ or ‘inspires’ her with words of life: eternal life.
With this inspiration, the Samaritan Woman then goes out into her neighbourhood, and ‘breathes into’ and ‘inspires’ others with these same words of life, love and grace, and many more became believers in Jesus who she says “really is the Saviour of the world”.
God Bless you as you breathe into and inspire others with His eternal life.
In His service – Pastor Ben
