John 4:42 And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.
Jesus had spoken to the Samaritan woman at the well. She had believed. After believing she had gone into the city telling others what Jesus had told her.
She invited all to come and know a man like no other she had met, ever. He had to be the Messiah, the Christ. Many believed because of her testimony. They came and met Jesus.
After hearing the truth from Jesus himself, many were converted, saved. They told the woman that they had come because of her influence but now knew the truth personally. They believed. They knew who Jesus was.
You may have people in your life that have told you of Jesus, but you will have to believe personally. It can’t be anyone else’s faith that gets you right with God. No one can believe for you.
Have you personally believed in Jesus? Have trusted His death on the cross for your salvation? If not be careful to know that you are personally responsible for your faith, your faith will determine what happens, not the faith of another.
