In John 4 we see that Jesus “had” to go through Samaria. Why? Because Jesus is in the business of Impacting people’s lives. The story of the Samaritan woman at the well is one of the most powerful events in the Bible. The Samaritan woman had come to a point in her life where she was “thirsty”. Jesus offered her Living Water…Himself. Immediately, she was compelled and driven to go back to her town and share Jesus with others. Then, many Samaritans came to see Jesus and their lives, in turn, were Impacted because her life was first Impacted by Jesus.
The ripple effect of Jesus making a difference in people’s lives continues through you and I.
