And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him [Jesus] for the saying of the woman which testifieth, He told me all that ever I did. —John 4:39
While Jesus sat at Jacob's well to rest, a poor woman, one who was living in sin, came to the well to get water. She had fallen very low and was despised by her friends, so that she had no one to lift her up and tell her of a better way. But Jesus came to seek the lost—to seek her and lift her up.
God help us to follow this example. If sinners feel like their feet are slipping into the pit of hell, Jesus is the mighty Savior. He can lift them up and make them children of the King.
Jesus preached salvation. The Samaritan woman at the well was converted. Then she left her pitcher and took the well of salvation with her. Running into the city, she went up one street and down another with her face aglow with God's glory. There was a great revival there at the well through this woman. This was the result of one sermon by a weak woman. Many were converted by the preaching of the woman, who said, "He told me all the things that I ever did."
Lord, use women to win
many to You. Amen.
