“Woman at the Well”

Categories: Minister's Corner

The story of the Woman at the Well in John 4 (especially verses 16-18) is a massive reminder that a PERSONAL conversation about SIN is not a PUBLIC proclamation for the whole world to know (via Facebook, twitter, instagram, phone calls, personal gossip, etc.)!  

The story shared by the apostle John concerning Jesus’ conversation with a sinful woman was God’s way to point out His GRACE and KINDNESS through Jesus Christ for a sinful world. "For His merciful kindness is great toward us, And the truth of the LORD endures forever. Praise the LORD!" (Psalm 117:2).  Think about it, if Christ could save her, this extremely sinful woman, then He can save me!   

Let's learn to talk to people personally, privately, and NOT discuss PUBLICLY about a personal sin committed by any individual. Let's display KINDNESS toward others and be positive and encouraging in order to help them understand God’s Amazing Grace.

In the words of John Wesley, "Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can." 


“But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.  For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, [9] not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:4-10).
