The story of the Samaritan woman in John 4:7-30 is an example of God’s recognition of our sinful nature and His unconditional love despite this knowledge.
The Samaritan Story, Our Samaritan Story shows that God is open to ALL, irrespective of where you are coming from. Isn’t it refreshing to know we are not condemned by our past, race, age etc.?
In John 4:10 we see that Jesus Christ was already aware of this woman’s past – “Jesus said to her, you have well said: ‘I have no husband,’ for you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; in that you spoke truly.”
But Christ’s recognition of this woman’s sinful past did not stop Him from giving her what she needed – The Living Water.
Jesus answered, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life” (John 4:13).
This is an offer God makes to us daily – inviting us to freely come and drink from the spring of life.
Are you tired of drinking from a well that always leaves you thirsty?
The story in John 4:7-30 is your answer.
