John 4:20-26 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. (21) Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. (22) Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. (23) But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. (24) God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. (25) The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. (26) Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.
The Jews are still looking for the Messiah, but what is the Messiah? The Word Messiah means anointed. Jesus is the Messiah, He is the one anointed by God. Not only is Jesus the anointed one, Jesus is also our Deliverer, our Salvation. Jesus is the Savior of the world. Today, there are many people who do not know Jesus as their Savior. The Jews are among these people. They are still looking for the Messiah to come. Are you looking for the Messiah or have you already accepted Jesus as your Messiah, as you Savior?
