I ❤ My Church-Series (Week One)
 
I LOVE MY CHURCH BECAUSE: (3 PRIMARY REASONS)
 
1. People can have an encounter with Jesus.
 
When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?” (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.) The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.)  John 4:7-9 NIV
 
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.    John 3:16-17 NIV
 
2. People can find the truth about God and themselves.
 
The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water so that I won’t get thirsty and have to keep coming here to draw water.” He told her, “Go, call your husband and come back.”  “I have no husband,” she replied.  Jesus said to her, “You are right when you say you have no husband. The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have just said is quite true.”  John 4:15-18 NIV
 
All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.  2 Timothy 3:16 NLT
 
“Sir,” the woman said, “I can see that you are a prophet.  John 4:19 NIV
 
3. People can experience hope and change.
 
Then, leaving her water jar, the woman went back to the town and said to the people, “Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Messiah?”  They came out of the town and made their way toward him.   John 4:28-30 NIV
 
Anyone who belongs to Christ is a new person. The past is forgotten, and everything is new.  2 Corinthians 5:17 CEV
