Trudging through John 4, questions began to rise to the surface, the Samaritan woman wondered about some of the same things:
- Can I possibly be worthy of the Messiah's attention?
- Does He have enough grace to cover all my sin?
- Am I worried about the flesh when I should focus on the spirit?
- How can I know God only wants and wills what's best for me?
Or did she try to pull herself out of the pit of sin and doubt with empty words? What was the Samaritan woman thinking as she tried to keep up in a battle of words and wit with the Messiah?
11 “Sir,” the woman said, “you don't have a bucket, and the well is deep. Where would you get that life-giving water? 12 It was our ancestor Jacob who gave us this well; he and his children and his flocks all drank from it. You don't claim to be greater than Jacob, do you?”
John 4: 11-12 GNT
