A few weeks ago one Sunday , I remember Rev. Jane preaching about Jesus’ encounter with the prostitute Samaritan woman at the well. And I said to myself, wow, the bible is truly an amazing book. Each time I listen or read this passage, I get a new revelation. Jesus was so forgiving, so tolerant, and so accepting. He had no racial bias and it didn’t matter to him that he was talking to a prostitute, a low life. This one life was worth saving. His disciples being human were shocked that he would talk to this outcast. He promised to give the woman living water that she would never thirst again.
We all have daily struggles. Jesus is non judgmental. He will meet us where we are and he will give us the strength we need to overcome whatever weaknesses we have for good. We shall never thirst for that sin, for that addiction ever again. We will then go off and testify of God’s goodness and draw more people to him.
