Isaiah 43:11-12“I, even I, am the Lord, And there is no savior besides Me. “It is I who have declared and saved and proclaimed, And there was no strange god among you; So you are My witnesses,” declares the Lord, “And I am God.

John 4:25 The woman *said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming (He who is called Christ); when that One comes, He will declare all things to us.” 26 Jesus *said to her, “I who speak to you am He.”

            Is it not striking that the very first declaration of Jesus to the world from his own mouth came to a Samaritan, a woman, and a profligate sinner? I don’t find it odd, somehow. I find it totally in keeping with the character of my Savior. Reaching out to the farthest flung edge of the cultural universe, a woman, a Samaritan, and a prostitute he extended grace to her.

            Every time I think about someone who by my own omission or callous disregard for a whole people group I am ashamed. Far too often we have, safe within the “whited sepulchers” of our Churches thought “us four and no more”. I do not mean this as a validation or condemnation of race. That we remain as sickly segregated as ever is to the shame and loss of all of the churches. Black, white, Native American and any other groups juxtaposed in our times.

            The only remedy for this sickness is a fresh infilling of the Holy Spirit. We must find a way to move beyond convention and doctrine to a place where the simple fact of our need for this Savior overcomes all of the foolishness we have layered on to Him over the centuries.
