Never underestimate the power of the words “written in red”.

When Jesus was in Samaria, the woman at the well left her water-pot and told the people all about Jesus. They received her testimony and invited Him to stay for a while. But two days later as He was leaving, they said this to her:

“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 savior of the world.” – John 4:42 NKJV

In the beginning, her words may have intrigued them, but Jesus is the one who changed them. Her words weren’t clever, they were honest ones spoken as an invitation to come listen for themselves. And when the people heard, their hearts were struck with the realization that they were encountering the Son of God.

Giving a testimony, preaching, teaching and other means of communication are great, but only if anchored to the “words in red”. They are the power of God in pure form, and the very words of life. Have you read them lately? Have you felt them strengthening your spirit today? Have you shared them? “…for we have heard Him and we know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world.”
