Under Gods Command

John 4:7-9 – When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?”(His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.) The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?”(For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.)

This woman (1) was a Samaritan, a member of the hated mixed race (2) was known to be living in sin, and (3) was in a public place. No respectable Jewish man would talk to a woman under such circumstances, But Jesus did. The gospel is for every person, no matter what his or her race, social position, or past sins. We must be prepared to share the gospel at any time and in any place. Jesus crossed all barriers to share the gospel, and we who follow him must do no less.

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; (6) in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight.
