5 Things I Learned From Jesus and the Samaritan Woman

As I read, meditated over, and prayed about the encounter that Jesus had with the Samaritan woman at the well in Sychar I learned some valuable truths about presenting the gospel. I share them with you with hopes that they will be beneficial towards your gospel presentation opportunities.

  • Jesus engaged in conversation with a Samaritan woman - we can engage anyone with the gospel
  • Jesus engaged in dialogue with this woman by using a common place need in her physical life - physical thirst & the need to constantly draw water
  • Jesus did not press her for a "decision" when she asked for the water Christ spoke of  - Jesus slowed the process down in order for her to fully understand why she need this living water
  • Jesus knew she wasn't asking from the right motive - she wanted his "water" in order not to get thirsty again nor to need to draw water again
  • Jesus had to get her to admit sin and her real need of spiritual water -  he made her aware of her sin (adultery & fornication)
