John 4:28-30 (NIV)
28 Then, leaving her water jar, the woman went back to the town and said to the
people, 29 "Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be
the Christ?" 30 They came out of the town and made their way toward him.

Jesus had met a Samaritan woman at the well and asked her to draw water for Him
to drink. The woman was surprised because Jews did not associate themselves
with Samaritans. Then Jesus surprised her further by telling her that He could
have given her living water, eternal life, if she had asked. Not understanding,
she asked for the living water because Jesus had told her she would never be
thirsty again. Jesus then told her to go get her husband to which she responded
that she had no husband. He then told her she spoke the truth that the man she
was living with was not her husband and that she had five prior husbands. It
was then that she left her jar, went back to the town and invited people to
come see this man who knew her. On her testimony they made their way towards

There are two important points about the verses above. First Jesus did not have
a problem associating himself with the Samaritan woman although any other Jew
would have had nothing to do with her. Second Jesus knew all of her sins. Not
only was she considered below the social class of the Jews, but she had many
sins against her. Yet Jesus overlooked both her social status and her sins in
order to talk with her. What He looked for was her truthfulness of heart and
eagerness to accept His word. The Samaritan woman believed He was the Christ
and brought out the entire town to meet Him. Jesus always wants to meet us
where we are no matter what our sins are. Jesus wants us to place our trust and
faith in Him just as the Samaritan woman did. Have you placed your trust in
Him? Pray and acknowledge that Jesus knows every sin, every detail of your
life. Nothing is hidden from Him. Pray that Christ will meet with you and
provide forgiveness for those sins because He loves you and understands your
weaknesses. Thank Jesus for His grace and His mercy. Know that His love is
greater than anything we can understand.
