Faith In The Word
“And 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.” So when the Samaritans had come to Him, they urged Him to stay with them; and He stayed there two days. And many more believed because of His own word. Then they said to the woman, “Now we believe, not because of what you said, for we ourselves have heard Him and we know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.” John 4:39-42
This verse shows that a testimony is indeed good to awaken a person’s faith. However, one cannot base their faith on other people’s testimonies, but on the Word of God.
Therefore, we have to invest in the Word because this is what will give us the ability to resist the devil.
The Samaritans went to JESUS because of the woman’s testimony, but they believed in HIM and remained because of the WORD!
