23 Sep Mission Unstoppable II
27 Just then his disciples came back. They marveled that he was talking with a woman, but no one said, “What do you seek?” or, “Why are you talking with her?” 28 So the woman left her water jar and went away into town and said to the people, 29 “Come, see a man who told me all that I ever did. Can this be the Christ?” 30 They went out of the town and were coming to him.
31 Meanwhile the disciples were urging him, saying, “Rabbi, eat.” 32 But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you do not know about.” 33 So the disciples said to one another, “Has anyone brought him something to eat?” 34 Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work. 35 Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, then comes the harvest’? Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest. 36 Already the one who reaps is receiving wages and gathering fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together. 37 For here the saying holds true, ‘One sows and another reaps.’ 38 I sent you to reap that for which you did not labor. Others have labored, and you have entered into their labor.”
39 Many Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, “He told me all that I ever did.” 40 So when the Samaritans came to him, they asked him to stay with them, and he stayed there two days. 41 And many more believed because of his word.42 They said to the woman, “It is no longer because of what you said that we believe, for we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this is indeed the Savior of the world.”
Last week we talk about the importance of making disciples of Christ. The measure of success for us as a church and as Christians is measured by whether or not we make disciples of Christ. That’s it. Our success is not measured by our church facilities, attendances, programs etc. They are all good things but they are not the primary thing. Jesus commanded his disciples and the church to be in the business of making disciples of all nations. This is Jesus’ mission that he entrusted to his disciples and us. So how do we make disciples? Three things. We make disciples by going, baptizing and teaching. We make disciples by sharing the gospel, showing the gospel and teaching the gospel. Today I want to zoom in on the going part, sharing the gospel. This is the first step of making disciples and I believe this is the hardest step as well. Not the hardest in term of it requires the most work, but it is the hardest because taking the first step is always the most difficult. It’s like deciding to go to the gym and live a healthy life. Do you know what the hardest step is? The hardest step is to actually start going to the gym. Usually after you start going to the gym, the rest will follow. But the hardest step is usually the first step. That is why we are going to spend 1 Sunday just to talk about why do we need to share the gospel and how can we share the gospel. And for that, we’ll take a look at the story of what happen after a Samaritan woman meet Jesus.
The story in this passage begins with Jesus leaving Judea for Galilee. John tells us that Jesus was tired and made a stop in Jacob’s well in a Samaritan town called Sychar. Then a Samaritan woman came to draw water at noon. It’s not customary for a woman to draw water at noon. The sun in Middle East is hot at noon and drawing water is no easy thing. Woman usually draw water at first hour of the day, which is around 6AM, not 12 PM. This woman must have a special reason to draw water at noon. Then Jesus did the unthinkable – he talked to the Samaritan woman! Why is it unthinkable? First, the Jews and the Samaritans hate one another. Second, it is socially unacceptable for a Jewish teacher to speak to a woman in a public space. It’s bad enough that Jesus had to go through Samaria and made a stop in the wrong side of town. But now he went even further – he talked to a woman, and not just any woman. We found out later that this woman was an adulterer.
Jesus then asked for a drink from the woman. The woman was confused at Jesus’ action. It is NOT NORMAL. Jews and Samaritans don’t do favor for one another. “Jesus, do you know whom you are asking a drink from?” Jesus is pursuing unacceptable relationship. Jesus said to the woman if only she knew who she was talking to. But then instead of asking her for water, Jesus turned the table around and offered her a living water, a water that will quench her thirst. At this point of the story, Jesus revealed to her and us the thirst that she hid in secret. Soul-thirst. Her soul is thirsty and she tried to quench that thirst with men. Jesus graciously revealed to her the fact that she had 5 husbands and the man she was living with then was not her husband. In essence, Jesus was telling the woman, “you are thirsty and I am the answer to your thirst. I am the living water. I am the Messiah. If you drink my water, you will never be thirsty again.”
Then Jesus’ disciples returned. But they were speechless at the scene in front of them. I mean, you would if you were one of the disciples. Imagine coming to Rock Sydney International and you saw a woman in tears with just Edrick next to her. And that woman was not Ellis. “Oh wow she must be touched by the Holy Spirit. I can feel the anointing ooze out of Edrick the moment I step into the room.” I don’t think any of you would think that. It will be one of those “Krik Krik” moment. Awkward. But I’m guessing that’s what happened back then. Jesus was revealing to the woman her deepest thirst and ministering to her heart. She must be in tears. And at that moment, twelve dudes walked in. It’s awkward for all party. And not only it’s awkward, it looks very wrong for many reasons. And when the disciples returned, the woman left her jar and went away into the town.
This is where I want to pick up. What happens next is absolutely astonishing. John 4:28-29 – 28 So the woman left her water jar and went away into town and said to the people, 29 “Come, see a man who told me all that I ever did. Can this be the Christ?” 30 They went out of the town and were coming to him. Okay. Pause for a second. What did the woman do? It’s not a tricky question. What did she do? She left her water jar; she went away into the town; she spoke to the people; “Come, see a man who told me all that I ever did. Can this be the Christ?” Correct? And what was the result? John 4:39 – 39 Many Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, “He told me all that I ever did.” This is revival. Probably the first revival noted in the life of Jesus. And how did it happen? Does it say that she goes to Bible college to learn more about Christ? Does it say she pray and fast for a week? No. What the woman did was she immediately left in excitement that she forgot her water jar, and went into the town and spoke to the people about what she experienced. She shared the gospel. And that’s what I want to talk about tonight. Share the gospel. Because the key to see many people come to know Christ, the key to make disciples, has little to do with me preaching on Sunday and everything to do with every one of you sharing the gospel where you are on Monday to Saturday. Let me put it this way. The main weight of making disciples does not lie on what happen at church but where you are on daily basis. One of the main reason the church becomes stagnant is we put too much emphasize on Sunday and neglect Monday to Saturday.
That’s why tonight I want to talk to you about sharing the gospel. Why do we need to share the gospel; how do we share the gospel; and the motivation to share the gospel.
Why do we need to share the gospel?
- We have a good news. The reason we need to share the gospel is because we have a good news. The word gospel means good news. We do not become Christians because it is exciting, although it is. We do not become Christians because it is relevant, although it is. We do not become Christians because it gives us value in life, although it is. Ultimately, I hope we embrace Christianity because it is a good news. And if it’s a good news, then we have to share it.
Let’s say for example that you are a doctor. And one day you find out that your daughter has aids and she’s very sick. She only has 6 months to live. And you know that aids has no cure. But because you love your daughter so much, you spent the next 6 months researching a cure for aids. You seek the help of your fellow doctors and you spent all your fortune trying to find a cure. You did test after test with no apparent result. You almost give up. But one day, by accident, you came up with a cure. You tested the cure on lab and it seems to work. Then you apply the cure to your daughter, and she is healed from aids. You are extremely excited and you begin to tell people that you find the cure to aids. It’s a good news. It is a life-changing truth. With your cure, you are able to save many lives. Your cure is the only remedy to aids. So you spread the word around through Instagram, Facebook, Newspaper, TV, “I have the only cure to aids! Come and seek me for help!”
Now, let me ask you a question. Is it wrong for you to say that? Are you narrow-minded in promoting the cure? Of course not. Then is it wrong for Christians to say that we have the only cure to human’s problem? It is not. Christians believe that human’s number one problem is not external but internal. The problem with us is we have sinful hearts and the solution is we need a new heart that only Jesus can give. It is not arrogant for Christians to try to convert people into Christianity. Why? Because we have the cure. We have a good news. To have the cure to aids and tell people about it is not arrogance; it is loving. To tell people that we have the cure to human’s problem is not arrogance; it is loving. If we truly believe the message of Christianity as good news then we have to share it. How much do you have to hate someone to see them dying and not tell them that you have the cure? To share what we believe about Christianity is not arrogance but loving.
- It is our spiritual nourishment. John 4:31-34 – 31 Meanwhile the disciples were urging him, saying, “Rabbi, eat.” 32 But he said to them,“I have food to eat that you do not know about.” 33 So the disciples said to one another,“Has anyone brought him something to eat?” 34 Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work.” Now if you remember at what happen at the beginning of chapter 4, Jesus was tired. That’s why he stopped at Sychar and the disciples went away to buy him some food. But when the disciples returned with food, Jesus says that he already has food to eat that they do not know about. The disciples are confused. Then Jesus went on and explain to them what does he meant by food. “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work.”
Anyone ever try not eating for longer than 24 hours? What do you feel? Some of you get “hangry” just by skipping one meal. I fasted for three days and three nights few times. And let me tell you. The first 24 hours is always the hardest. My body feel very weak and tired. It is screaming for food. And I imagined this is what Jesus felt. He was weary and tired. Don’t forget that even though Jesus is God, he is also 100% man. He gets hungry like we do but not hangry. But when the disciples returned with food, Jesus was already nourished. Why? Because he has other food that gives him sustenance. He was no longer weary and tired. What was his food? To do the will of God and accomplish his work. Which lead us to this question, “What is the work of God?” Jesus answered, “For the Son of Man came to seek and save the lost.” That’s the work of God. That’s what Jesus came to do. For it is not God’s will for anyone to perish but for everyone to come into repentance. It is Jesus’ work to give eternal life. And here is what’s interesting. Jesus was weary but when he works to accomplish God’s will, he finds sustenance and nourishment. Jesus finds life by giving his life.
Now, hear me out on this. I’m not telling you to stop eating physical foods. You and I are human. We need food to live. But, there is another kind of food that our spirits need. Jesus is showing us there is a specific kind of food that will nourish our spiritual strength. That food is to take part in what Jesus is doing, which is to seek and save the lost. Is it possible, that the reason many of us are weak spiritually, is not because we don’t read the Bible, not because we do not pray, not because we do not go to church, but because we are not taking part in his works? Jesus calls accomplishing God’s work his food. And I think, and I believe, the reason many of us are weak spiritually is because we are not taking part in accomplishing God’s work. You are I are called to find spiritual nourishment by giving our life for God’s work. Participating in God’s work does not weaken but rather it strengthens us.
- It is a time of harvest. John 4:35-38 – 35 Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, then comes the harvest’? Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest. 36 Already the one who reaps is receiving wages and gathering fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together. 37 For here the saying holds true, ‘One sows and another reaps.’ 38 I sent you to reap that for which you did not labor. Others have labored, and you have entered into their labor.”
I think none of us grew up in farm, so it’s not easy to understand Jesus’ metaphor. Let me try to explain. Even though most of us have no idea whatsoever about farming, but we know enough to know that there is always time gap between sowing and reaping. If you sow apple seed at your backyard today, you don’t expect apple to pop out tomorrow. There is a time gap between time of sowing and time of reaping. So here is Jesus speaking to his disciples. “You know that there are still another 4 months till the harvest time. But I’m telling you, you do not need to wait for another 4 months. Look up and see the field in front of you. It is ready for harvest.” And by fields, he does not mean an actual farming fields. Jesus is speaking of the Samaritans. They are ready to be harvested. They are ready to receive Christ as the Lord and Savior. You do not need to wait any longer.
This is spectacular. With the coming of Jesus, we entered a new season, a harvest season. Every day is a harvest season. The field is ever ready. All we have to do is take part in God’s field doing God’s work. You are invited to take part in God’s harvesting. However, it does not mean that we will always reap the moment we sow. Because Jesus continues by saying that one sows and another reaps. So, it is possible for me to keep sharing the gospel to Bob for many years and do not see anything happening through my continuous sowing. But then Bill comes out of nowhere and say “Bob, Jesus loves you”, and instantaneously reap the result of my labor. What was promised in the season of harvest is not overnight sowing and reaping but that there are always fields that are white for harvest in front of us. So, we experience both the joy of sowing and reaping at the same time.
How do we share the gospel?
I think most of the time, we made sharing the gospel harder than it should. I remember my very first time sharing the gospel. I was 16 or 17 and I was highly involved in E.T. One day after our Friday night prayer meeting, we decided to do street evangelism. We went in pair. So, me and one of my best friend went to Darling Harbor to look for a potential target. Bear in mind that this was my very first time to evangelize. I was clueless. When we get to Darling Harbor, we looked around for someone who had nothing to do. And we found our target. A middle-aged man, sitting by the harbor on his own, eating a burger. So, we approached him. I was extremely nervous. We sat next to him and neither of us know what to say. But I’m a PK. I had to maintain my dignity. I must show my friend that I can do it. So, I started the conversation. “Sorry to disturb you but how are you doing today sir?” I’m trying to be polite. “I’m alright” he replied. I asked him another question, “What are you doing here alone sir?” “I’m eating my burger.” Then it was Krik Krik moment. But I was ready. I had this one question prepared that I was sure will blow his mind. You ready? I asked him this question. “Do you know who made your burger? Do you know who made this beautiful scenery in front of us? It’s God. And he loves you.” Okay. Needless to say, things did not turn out well.
When we talk about sharing the gospel, I think we all know that we need to do it. The problem is that we do not do it. There could be many reasons why we do not do it but I think one of the reason is a lot of time we make sharing the gospel a lot more complicated than it should be. I think that most of us believe that for us to be able to share the gospel well we need good techniques and solid arguments. And there is nothing wrong with it. We can certainly learn good techniques and good arguments to support our beliefs. But I’ve been a Christian for 32 years and until today I have never meet anyone who became Christian because they lost an argument. Praise God for people who devoted themselves to defend Christianity. I think it’s very important for us to be able to defend why we believe what we believe. But you don’t need to know all of it to share the gospel. This Samaritan woman knows nothing about Apologetics. In fact, this woman hardly knows anything about Jesus. Yet because of her, many Samaritans believed in Jesus. How did she do it? Two things.
- Transparency. Listen to what she said, “Come, see a man who told me all I ever did.” She did not have 5 steps to successful evangelism. She did not explain justification by faith alone. She did not try to answer the question to why bad things happen to good people. No. She did not do all of that. All she said was, “look at what happen to me.” Do you know what she is doing? She’s inviting people to her mess. This is what we need to understand. The first thing about sharing the gospel is we need to be transparent to people. It means not hiding who you really are in front of people. Just be you. How hard could it be?
One of the lies of Christianity is that you must have it all together. That in order for you to be salt and light, you have to be someone that people look up to. That’s not Christianity. The message of Christianity is not that you are good enough for Christ but Christ is good even though you are not good enough. And this is what the woman did. She ran to town and tell people that she met a man who knew everything she did. There is a big turnaround that’s happening here. You know the reason why she went to draw water at noon was because she tried to avoid people. People knew who she was. She was the shame of the town. She was a mess. Yet it was the very thing that God used to draw people to Christ. She ran back to town and told everyone that there is someone who knew all of her mess and yet still comes for her.
The first step to sharing the gospel is to be transparent to people around you. Draw them near to your mess. Be who you are in front of them. Share with them your struggle and your weakness. Let people in into your life. Let them see how you deal with your mess. Let them see how you make decision. Let them know that you don’t have it altogether. Don’t hide who you really are from people around you. Invite them into your life. Be transparent with people around you.
- Point people to Jesus. She doesn’t say, “let me give you 7 steps to make your life better.” She said, “Come, see a man…” And again, remember that at this time this woman is almost clueless about Jesus. Does she know that Jesus will have to die for her sin? I don’t think so. Does she know that Jesus is 100% God and 100% man? I doubt. She has some sense that Jesus could be the Messiah they are waiting for because Jesus revealed that to her. But that’s it. And at that time, her understanding of Messiah is very different from Jesus’s definition of Messiah. But this woman understands one thing. She might not fully understand who Jesus is, but she knows enough to know that the person standing in front of her is the answer to her thirst.
This is what makes Christianity different from every other religion. Every other religion tells you the way to get God. It gives you steps to follow and if you can follow them, then you will be saved. But Christianity is different. At the heart of Christianity is not 7 steps for you to get to God. At the heart of Christianity is a God who came to get you. And Jesus says, “I am the way, the truth and the life.” He does not say I know the way, but he is the way. And the way has come to us. We do not need to look for the way. He came to find us. That’s why you can be transparent with people. That’s why you can be real with them. Because we are not saved by our own goodness; we are saved by Christ’s goodness. Your mess could be the starting point in pointing people to Jesus.
Sharing the gospel is a lot simpler than we think. All the Samaritan woman did was being transparent with who she was and pointed people to Jesus. God used this woman’s imperfect testimony to draw people to Jesus. And I believe God wants to do the same with your story. Your story, your daily life, is a vehicle for you to share the gospel. And once you point people to Jesus, people will no longer believe just because of your story. They will believe in Jesus because they will see and hear him for themselves. So, the weight is not in your story. The weight is in the person who is the focus of your story. Don’t be afraid to share the gospel.
The motivation to share the gospel
What drives the woman to ran back into town and tell everyone about Jesus? What enables a woman who was filled with shame to run and expose her shame to the whole town? Let me tell you a story of how the Gospel first came to Batak tribe in northern Sumatra, Indonesia. There was a time where the whole Batak tribe was a completely Muslim tribe. Then one day a Baptist missionary came and shared the gospel with them. Do you know what happened to them? The tribe leaders did not like what they heard and they ate them. And then few years later, another missionary came and shared the same gospel with them. And the leaders of tribe thought, “These people are saying the same things that the others said. Maybe we should listen to what they are saying.” So they did. And do you know what happen? Within two months, the whole tribe was converted. Today, there are over 3 million Christians among the Batak tribes.
Now let me ask you a question. What drives these missionaries to do that? What drives the Samaritan woman to run back to town? Listen to Paul’s answer. This is what drives Paul’s passion to spread the gospel. 2 Corinthians 5:14-15 – For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.
This is our motivation to share the gospel. For the love of Christ controls us. Other translation says, compels us. What made the Samaritan woman run to town and tell everyone about Christ was because she experienced the life-changing love of Christ. And Christ’s love tells her that he knows everything there is to know about her. Jesus knew exactly who this Samaritan woman was. He knew about Sammy, Johnny and all other previous husbands. And he knew about Bob who she was living with at the time. Yet Jesus graciously set everything in motion so that he might meet this woman. He purposefully went through Samaria. He intentionally stopped at Sychar. He sent away his disciples. He waited for this woman. He broke many traditions just to speak to her. He exposed the woman’s thirst to her. And he offered her a living water. He saw this woman to the bottom. He knows everything about her. And he loves her completely.
The love of Christ is our motivation to share the gospel. At the cross, Jesus thirst so that we may never thirst again. At the cross, Jesus took the shame that is ours and gives us his righteousness so that today we have no reason to be ashamed. At the cross, Jesus is punished so that we may live. At the cross, Jesus cries out, “It is finished.” At the cross, Jesus completed the work of God. His work is done. Now is our role to sow and reap. But we do not sow and reap in uncertainty. We sow and reap in the full knowledge that the work has been done. God will not fail to save those who are his. It is mission unstoppable. Salvation does not belong to man; it belongs to God. This does not mean that we will succeed every time we share the gospel. Just like what happened in Batak, the early missionaries were cannibalized while the later experienced tremendous success. One sows and another reaps. The thing is, you don’t get to choose your role. You don’t get to choose whether you want to be the one being eaten or the one reaping. We are not responsible for the outcome but we are compelled to share the gospel. What we know for sure is that Christ’s ultimate victory is guaranteed. His mission will not fail. So we share the gospel boldly.

5 KEY WORDS for RSI
- Intentional – To share the gospel, we must live intentional lifestyle. That means, we have to seek opportunity and not wait for opportunity. Don’t wait for people to come to you. We need to be the one who take initiative to come to people. I think for some of us, it is not that we do not want to share the gospel, but we are waiting for the opportunity to come. But if we take Jesus’ word seriously about harvest, we no longer need to wait for opportunity to share the gospel. The field is ready. All it need is for us to take initiative and be intentional about it. Don’t wait for people to have a nightmare with your face in it and for them to approach you and ask what the nightmare means. We do not need to ask for a sign from God either. It’s harvest season. All of us are called to go and make disciples. Remember that the call to make disciples do not belong to a select few but to all disciples of Christ. It does not mean that all of us need to go into fulltime ministry but it does mean that wherever we are in life, we have to be intentional about sharing the gospel and make disciples of Christ. All of us are uniquely wired by God with different gifts and passion. And all of us are uniquely placed by God in different area. You are not where you are by accident. You are where you are because God has a purpose for you there. God has given you the talents that you have and the passion that you have for a purpose. All of us have different gifts. Some of you love numbers and accounting. I don’t understand why you love accounting but you do. So go ahead and pursue your love in accounting. Be the best accountant you can be. Be the best stay home mom you can be. Be the best Food Scientist you can be. But that is not your purpose. All of us have different gifts and spheres of influence but we all have the same purpose. Our purpose is that wherever we are, we are called to make disciples of Christ. Be the best accountant you can be and make disciples of Christ as you count all those numbers. Stop living small and start living big. You are part of God’s plan to accomplish his worldwide mission. God has given you a big purpose in your everyday lives. So don’t live small; live big.
- Pray – Salvation belongs to the Lord. The only one who can open people eyes to see their need for grace is God. The only one who can grant salvation is God. Salvation is a supernatural work. That’s why we need to pray. There is nothing we can do and nothing we can say on our own that can win people to Christ. Only the Holy Spirit can. So in some sense, it should humble us. But it also should encourage us. That mean, their salvation is not up to you. There is no magic mantra or magic formula that we need to master for success evangelism. It is the works of God. If God is willing, he can save anyone through you. So, pray! Rely on God. The bad news is that you can’t save anyone. The good news is that God can save anyone. And he wants to use you in the process. You can be the sower or you can be the reaper. Either way, God will not fail. Pray!
- Be you! – Don’t try to be super-spiritual and freak others. Just be you. Let people around you know that you are a Christian in a natural way. Don’t go around saying, “I am a Christian so I need to pray and ask the Lord if it is his will for me to go out to lunch with you.” Don’t do that. It’s freaky. Use every opportunity to let people around you know that you are a Christian in a natural way. Don’t be shy to pray before meal in front of your co-worker. Don’t be afraid to let them know you love to listen to Christian songs. You don’t have to listen to Bieber to be cool. Don’t be shy to tell them on Monday that Church was awesome on Sunday. The point is, be you! Be the Christian you! You don’t need to over-spiritualize everything to let people know that you are a Christian.
- Invite – Invite people into your life. If you work with them Monday-Friday, 9 to 5, then take them out to dinner sometime. Split the bill. Or pay for them if you have some extra cash. Get to know them as a person. Listen to their story. Be their friends. Ask the hard questions. Ask them about their faith and listen. Don’t comment too much and tell them that everything they believe is wrong. Listen to their problems, get to know their needs and offer to pray for them. And don’t be afraid to share your problem as well. Invite them into your life and mess. If you like to cook, invite them into your house and cook for them. The point is, don’t settle just to know them on the surface. Invite them into your life and build friendship with them. And yes it will be inconvenient. But it is worth it! Do not underestimate the power of hospitality in sharing the gospel.
- Point – Point them to Jesus. As friendship is built, you will have many opportunities to point them to Jesus. As you invite them into your mess, point them to the one who turns your mess into message. As they share their problems with you, don’t just give them the 5 steps solution to their problem. Help them to see the problem of all problems, sin, and its cure, the gospel of Jesus. Answer all their objections on Christianity. If you don’t know the answer, tell them you’ll get back to them and call Edrick and Jejep for the answer. Buy them Christian books. Or even read book together with them. Invite them to KM. Invite them to church. Keep pointing them to Jesus as the answer. And remember, you don’t need to have all the answer. You don’t need to worry about presenting the gospel perfectly to them. God is sovereign to give salvation to whomever he desires. All the Samaritan woman says is, “Come and see a man.” And that’s our hope for their salvation. Not in our ability to win them over but in Christ’s absolute power to give life to whomever he wants.
