The Unusual Mercies of God 12
By Rev Robert Ampiah-Kwofi
The “woman at the well” was a seeker for spiritual truth.
1 Peter 2:2 NKJV
“As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby,”
She first saw Jesus as a Jew.
So she asked Him why He was ignoring the ethnic hatred between Jews and Samaritans, to ask her for water.
Jesus offered her living water.
So she posed her second question.
Was Jesus greater than Jacob who gave them the well of ordinary water?
Jesus told her that anyone who drank His living water, would never thirst again.
She desired to have this supernatural water.
Jesus asked for her husband.
She tried to hide the mess in her marital life.
Jesus supernaturally revealed her five failed marriages, and her current relationship outside of wedlock.
She now saw Him as a prophet.
She then asked Him which religion was right.
The Samaritan mountain worship or Jewish Jerusalem temple worship.
Jesus answered that the Jewish worship was divinely ordained, but a new move of God had begun that was greater than it.
The woman knew about the coming Messiah and what He would do.
John 4:25 NKJV
“The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (who is called Christ). “When He comes, He will tell us all things.”
She now saw Him as possibly the Messiah, because of the depths of His revelation and answers.
Jesus gave her an answer that changed her life.
John 4:26 NKJV
“Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am He.”
The “messed up” woman had found the Messiah.
She forgot about the water she had come to fetch.
John 4:28 NKJV
“The woman then left her waterpot, went her way into the city, and said to the men”
She had a new mission in life.
She was going to lead her whole city to Christ.
John 4:29 NKJV
“Come, see a Man who told me all things that I ever did. Could this be the Christ?”
All the men of her city followed her to see the Messiah.
May you also do great wonders by the unusual mercies of God.
May you be fruitful and multiply.
Those who looked down on you will now look up to you, in Jesus’ name.
