Jesus' Example

John 4:7 A woman from Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, "Give me a drink." We see four examples for us to follow by looking at how Jesus ministered to the woman at the well.

1. He intentionally walked through Samaria when everyone else avoided it. Sometimes, we must be willing to go where others do not or will not.
2. He initiated contact with her. Sometimes, we are the ones who need to start the conversation.
3. He affirmed her humanity and value. Everyone deserves to hear the gospel because they are precious to God.
4. He proved that he cared more for her soul than he did for his own religious tradition. Religious tradition dictated that Jesus not even have a conversation with this woman, and yet, he cared so much for her that he did it any way
