Day 20: Monday, March 25th, 2019

Jesus had to go through Samaria. He came to a Samaritan city called Sychar, which was near the land Jacob had given to his son Joseph.Jacob’s well was there. Jesus was tired from his journey, so he sat down at the well. It was about noon.A Samaritan woman came to the well to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give me   some water to drink.” His disciples had gone into the city to buy him some food.The Samaritan woman asked, “Why do you, a Jewish man, ask for something to drink from me, a Samaritan woman?” (Jews and Samaritans didn’t associate with each     other.) 10 Jesus responded, “If you recognized God’s gift and who is saying to you, ‘Give me some water to drink,’ you would be asking him and he would give you living water.”

 John 4:3-10

 

The story of the woman at the well teaches us that God loves us in spite of our bankrupt lives. God values us enough to actively seek us, to welcome us to intimacy, and to     rejoice in our worship. As a result of Jesus’ conversation, only a person like the         Samaritan woman, an outcast from her own people, could understand what this means. To be wanted, to be cared for when no one, not even herself, could see anything of    value in her–this is GRACE.

 

Take some time today to think how you personally can share his grace with others as well as your testimony about Jesus and teach others to believe in Him .
