TOPIC: LOVE CONQUERS ALL (2)
Jesus left Judea and departed again to Galilee. But He needed to go through Samaria.
So why would Jesus, a Jew decide to pass through a longer route which would take him through the almost forbidden Samaritan territory? Along with the fact that it was a longer route, Jesus was also found alone with a woman by His disciples, something alien to Jewish culture, especially a woman Jesus didn’t know. So why would the Lord deliberately commit these three serious infractions?
- To save a soul, the woman
- Who then evangelized a whole city and also saved them
- And ended thousands of years of enmity between Jews and Samaritans
In this act by Jesus, He exemplified two of the key ministries God called you and I: 1. Evangelism, and 2. Reconciliation. Central to the actions and results is the love of God. Jesus breached an ancient Jewish/Samaritan enmity to demonstrate the love of God. And see the amazing results.
We will conclude tomorrow by His grace.
