Jesus’ meeting with Samaritan woman reveals his heart for those who have had their humanity stripped away.
John 4 describes the meeting of Jesus and a Samaritan woman. In this account, we learn that this woman carried a great deal of shame and pain from her life experiences. This is another example of a “Good News” story, for all those who have felt the weight of shame, rejection or hurt.
Jesus offers her a drink from the ‘living water’, which never runs dry. Unlike many temporary solutions or quick fixes, which inevitably never last, we have the opportunity to come the Well of Living Water to quench our thirst. This woman’s life was transformed by her encounter with Jesus, just as ours can be too.
