The woman was surprised, for Jews refuse to have anything to do with Samaritans. She said to Jesus, “You are a Jew, and I am a Samaritan woman. Why are you asking me for a drink?” – John 4:9 (NLT)
Jesus was always breaking down barriers. He crossed cultural lines and went out of His way to love others.
In today’s Bible verse, we see the story of Jesus talking with the Samaritan woman. He surprised her by His love for her and how he went out of His way to talk to her and help her.
Jesus has always crossed lines and gone out of His way to love those who were hurting. He loves those who society overlooks.
As Christians, we should be doing the same. We should be going out of our way to love those around us who have been overlooked and unheard. We should be striving to love those around us, not because of what society says but because of who we serve.
Jesus always values people. Regardless of background. He broke down barriers and loved people all around Him.
So today, challenge yourself to look for someone hurting around you. Then ask God how you can be part of the solution. Ask God to show you how you can love those around you and show the world God’s love.
