Sitting in Starbucks…prepping for my message this weekend.
I get to share about the Samaritan woman at the well and her interaction with Jesus.
It’s such a powerful story of what happens when someone encounters Jesus.
I found this great quote…and wanted to share it:
“As the woman departs from the well to tell the Good News in the city, she leaves her water jar behind. The Gospel writer’s mention of the abandoned water jar is an intriguing detail. Perhaps it expresses the fact that she now possesses the living water and will never thirst again. Perhaps it conveys her haste and apostolic zeal to witness Jesus. Most interestingly, many commentators see it as as the feminine counterpart to the nets and boats of the male disciples left behind to follow Jesus.” -The Women of the Gospel, Stephen Binz
Love it! Another powerful example of Jesus calling and changing lives through women!!
