Text: John 4:1-42
Synopsis: Jesus crossed the line that separates people from one another and embraced the differences that exist between people.
He welcomed and embraced a Samaritan woman as God’s beloved – by pointing to Jacob’s Well, where both Israelites and Samaritans come and draw water and drink from it, that we drink water from the same source – that we are brothers and sisters.
The Kingdom of God is about drawing our circle wider and even dare to cross the lines that divide our differences and reach out to the people who are on the furthest corner of the other side of line to embrace and welcome them as children of God.
