Busted in Samaria

Biblical-era Jews went out of their way to avoid Samaria. The Bible says that Jesus was in Samaria  ‘by necessity.’

It was necessary for him to go through Samaria (John 4:4,AMP).

He could have avoided it. However, he found rest and refreshment there. (John 4:6-8). He enjoyed conversation (7), confrontation (9) and had a chance to witness (10-24). As a result a woman chose to believe in Christ (25-26). She eventually told others about Jesus (29) and they also believed (40).

How is it going in your Samaria?

Prayer -Lord when we find ourselves in places we don’t want to be, remind us that you go before us and that someone in our Samaria needs to hear about Jesus. Amen
