Today, on the Pasture’s Advent Podcast:
“We’re talking about the ultimate human misfit during this Advent. Not only to the general public (pretty much nobody like Samaritans), but even among her own tribe she was a reject. 3 strikes for sure: a woman, a Samaritan, and perversely unclean…
…I can’t emphasize enough how hated this woman was by her fellow villagers, yet verse 39 says that “many believed the gospel because of her testimony”! They not only paused long enough to hear her out, they fell to their knees in repentance of their OWN sins!!!
The sinner-woman literally led her whole town to Jesus!
Have you tasted the Living Water and seen the Lord is good?
Do you worshipfully bow in grace – AMAZED – He chose you?
Is your life a testimony and witness of the good things He has done?”
