In John 4, Jesus and his disciples travel through Samaria in order to return to Galilee. At the village of Sychar, Jesus and company stop to rest at the historic well built by Jacob and given to his son Joseph.
As his disciples venture off to find food, Jesus took a seat close to the well and watched as a Samaritan woman came to draw water. Against the social norm of the time, Jesus strikes up a conversation with the woman. He tells her things about her past and present that only she would know, revealing himself to be the Liberating King. In that instant, her life was changed.
But, the story doesn't end here. The woman goes back to the village and tells people that she has met Jesus, the Liberating King. Verse 39 tells us the impact this woman had: "...because one woman shared with her neighbors how Jesus exposed her past and present, the village of Sychar was transformed..."
It only takes one person to change things. Because of the Samaritan woman an entire village was transformed. Think about that. It's an incredible, challenging thought.
YOU have the power to change things.
What kind of changes do you want to see take place in your life, in society, in the world? What are you doing to see these changes come to pass?
