The Samaritan Woman
John 4:6-42

More commonly known as, “The Woman at the Well," the Samaritan woman was viewed in the Jewish community as immoral and sinful. She was to be avoided by many without contact. She was basically an outcast, shunned by many and alone.

Since the Jewish rabbis were instructed not to look or talk to her, she had no understanding of the Messiah other than He was a prophet to come.

Jesus, out of His compassionate heart, did not look down on her, nor did He shun her. He instead humbled Himself and took time with her, not making her feel any lower than He. He felt her hurt and knew her loneliness; He knew that she was trying to fulfill a void through her various relationships with the village men.

He offered her a drink of the, “Living Water," that would fill up all the empty spots in her life.

Jesus used wisdom in approaching her and in that moment, where it was only He and the Samaritan woman, He revealed Himself to her. She believed and received, and witnessed what had happened to her, to those who had avoided her.

I can relate to this woman, I made wrong choices in life, and have been shunned by friends. Therefore I chose to be by myself rather than to have an entourage of friends. Within my isolation, while all alone with God; He revealed His true presence and love to me. He planted a seed of salvation and deliverance, humbled me to a lowly state, wrapped me up in His arms of protection, formed my inward parts to His desire, and set me free.

After the metamorphosis, I came out with power, and I am going into the world by being a living epistle for God and winning others to Christ.

I like how you pointed out that because the "religious" people shunned her, she didn't know who Jesus was. All too often we discount people before we ever give them a chance. Go story.
