John 4:5-42 –
SERMON SUMMARY by Pastor Stan Shantz:
Maybe there are days when we need to realize that God offers living water in the ordinary places and times of our lives. Maybe we’re a long-time follower but still need the living water Jesus Christ offers. Maybe like the woman at the well our response is gratitude & inviting others to hear about the good news of salvation.
The inclusive character of Jesus Christ’s mission is a note that needs sounding again & again! I have thoughts and feelings about a lot of things. But is what I say or do building walls or breaking them down? Are we more concerned about our position or posture? This woman shows us that faith is about dialogue, growth & change. It’s not about having all the right answers!
This story calls us to approach our Xian faith with a humble spirit and a willingness to hear an old message with new eyes. This woman demonstrated what can happen when we engage in conversation & questions about faith. She shows us that faith is about dialogue, growth & change. It’s not about having all the answers.
