Spirituality: God's Gift


#spirituality John 4:24 “God is Spirit; and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.

This passage reveals the spirituality of Jesus, as a true doctor of the soul.
Jesus is in Samaria and meets a woman and talks with her. And what's interesting about that? Much. Since it was society's custom for men not to talk to women. In that macho culture of the time, talking to a woman in public was socially reprimanded. And yet, we see Jesus talking to a woman in public. Jesus did not allow himself to be controlled by the customs of society that went against the Word of God.
The disciples would wonder, but what happens to Jesus. Nobody in Jewish society does that! Brothers, we are called to imitate Jesus in this.

Our mind must be biblical. God does not command us to follow the customs of society that are contrary to the Word of God. From here we see brothers, how liberating is the gospel of Jesus Christ! How just, compassionate, and tender is Jesus Christ! I mean it's because Jesus lives forever. The gospel frees us from society's slave thinking.

The interesting thing is accentuated by the fact that the woman was a Samaritan. And Jews don't get along with Samaritans. They reject the Samaritan race as a mixed race of Jews and Gentiles. But Jesus doesn't limit his gospel to a single race. The gospel is for all races and languages of the world. Jesus wasn't a racist. And we must learn the same from Jesus. In your dealings with people of other nationalities, The gospel is for all the peoples of the world, no matter how different they are from us. Even knowing the sins of this woman, Jesus forgives her, offers her the water of eternal life, which only he can give.
I love Jesus and by virtue of that love I offer him this song, because of his great love for all
