Jesus’ Master Class On Evangelism: The Woman At The Well
By Allen Weed • President, interlinc • Franklin Tennessee
I knew the passage for Sunday’s service at our church was John 4 and the “Woman At The Well”. I knew that our teaching pastor was out of town and that there would be a guest speaker …but I had no idea how significant and youth-ministry-relevant the message would be!
If you want to be reminded of the life-long impact your ministry to students can have, please watch this teaching by Williamson County Young Life Director, Robby Painter.
Here are some of the key points and where they are in his message.
5:32 – Jesus Interacted With People
At The Top Of The Ladder And The Bottom Rung.
John 3 – Jesus and Nicodemus
A Man, At Night, Named, Moral, Religious, Theologically Trained, Influential
John 4 – Jesus and The Woman At The Well
A Woman, During The Day, Unnamed, Immoral Past, Irreligious, Uneducated, Insignificant
25:49 – Jesus Gives a Master Class
How to engage with people who are living disconnected from God.
Youth Leaders Only, in its 38th year, helps youthworkers in thousands of churches be aware of the music their students are listening to, use all forms of music in their ministries, and equip their students to make wise choices about the music & media they have in their earbuds 9 hours every day. A membership costs less than the price of a pizza each month! The theme of the current YLO is “Evangelism: Making The Most Of Every Opportunity.” Click here to get it!
28:52 – Robby’s Story
The impact of a youth leader who intentionally sought him out. “When I was in high school…”
(If you only have a few minutes, I encourage you to go straight to Robby’s story!)
39:27 – Friend of Sinners
The Pharisees had a derogatory slur they used in referring to Jesus “Friend of Sinners”… Jesus’ reply “You bet I am!”
Because we have a relationship with Jesus we can be fountains of “living water” for those who are thirsty to know the love of their Creator.
Lord, give us eyes to see those who are thirsty and the desire to intentionally pursue them.
Not sure about you, but I want to be known as a friend of sinners!
