I love the story of the Samaritan woman (John 4). Jesus spoke so clearly to her about her sin and because she received His words, her life was changed. She left her old life and went into the city to tell others about Jesus.
There are three things that make her life an example of what our walk with the Lord should look like.
- She listened to Jesus with an open heart. She didn’t make a zillion excuses or blame someone else for her sin.
- She made the choice to turn from her old way of life and to believe that she could be different.
- She told the story.
It doesn’t matter where you are when Jesus finds you, only that you choose the new life He offers and then tell others about it!
“From that city many of the Samaritans believed in Him because of the word of the woman who testified, “He told me all the things that I have done.”” – John 4:39(ESV)
