4:1 A Samaritan Woman Meets Her Messiah
Therefore, when the Lord knew that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and
baptized more disciples than John 2(though Jesus Himself did not baptize, but His
disciples), 3 He left Judea and departed again to Galilee. 4 But He needed to go
5 So He came to a city of Samaria which is called Sychar, near the plot of ground that
Jacob gave to his son Joseph. 6 Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being
wearied from His journey, sat thus by the well. It was about the sixth hour.
7 A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, "Give Me a drink." 8 For
His disciples had gone away into the city to buy food.
9 Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, "How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink
from me, a Samaritan woman?" For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.
10 Jesus answered and said to her, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says
to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given you
11 The woman said to Him, "Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep.
Where then do You get that living water? 12 Are You greater than our father Jacob,
who gave us the well, and drank from it himself, as well as his sons and his livestock?"
13 Jesus answered and said to her, "Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, 14
but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I
shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life."
15 The woman said to Him, "Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here
16 Jesus said to her, "Go, call your husband, and come here."
17 The woman answered and said, "I have no husband."
Jesus said to her, "You have well said, 'I have no husband,' 18 for you have had five
husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; in that you spoke
19 The woman said to Him, "Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet. 20 Our fathers
worshiped on this mountain, and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is the place where one
ought to worship."
21 Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on
this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father. 22 You worship what you do not
know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. 23 But the hour is
coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth;
for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. 24 God is Spirit, and those who worship
Him must worship in spirit and truth."
25 The woman said to Him, "I know that Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ).
"When He comes, He will tell us all things."
26 Jesus said to her, "I who speak to you am He."
27 The Whitened Harvest
And at this point His disciples came, and they marveled that He talked with a woman;
yet no one said, "What do You seek?" or, "Why are You talking with her?"
28 The woman then left her waterpot, went her way into the city, and said to the men,
29 "Come, see a Man who told me all things that I ever did. Could this be the Christ?"
30 Then they went out of the city and came to Him.
31 In the meantime His disciples urged Him, saying, "Rabbi, eat."
32 But He said to them, "I have food to eat of which you do not know."
33 Therefore the disciples said to one another, "Has anyone brought Him anything to
34 Jesus said to them, "My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His
work. 35 Do you not say, 'There are still four months and then comes the harvest'?
Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white
for harvest! 36 And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that
both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. 37 For in this the saying is
true: 'One sows and another reaps.' 38 I sent you to reap that for which you have not
labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors."
39 The Savior of the World
And many of the Samaritans of that city believed in Him because of the word of the
woman who testified, "He told me all that I ever did." 40 So when the Samaritans had
come to Him, they urged Him to stay with them; and He stayed there two days. 41 And
many more believed because of His own word.
42 Then they said to the woman, "Now we believe, not because of what you said, for we
ourselves have heard Him and we know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the

"Christ and the Samaritan Woman"
Artist: Bloch "Christ and the Samaritan Woman"
little use for him to know that there are those at the hospital who can bind up his
wounds, and medicines there to ease all the pains which he now suffers: what he needs
is to be carried thither, and to have the remedies applied. It is thus with our souls, and
to meet this need there is one, even the Spirit of truth, who takes of the things of Jesus,
and applies them to us. Think not that Christ hath placed His joys on heavenly shelves
that we may climb up to them for ourselves, but He draws near, and sheds His peace
abroad in our hearts. O Christian, if thou art to-night labouring under deep distresses,
thy Father does not give thee promises and then leave thee to draw them up from the
Word like buckets from a well, but the promises He has written in the Word He will write
anew on your heart. He will manifest His love to you, and by His blessed Spirit, dispel
your cares and troubles. Be it known unto thee, O mourner, that it is God's prerogative
to wipe every tear from the eye of His people. The good Samaritan did not say, "Here is
the wine, and here is the oil for you"; he actually poured in the oil and the wine. So
Jesus not only gives you the sweet wine of the promise, but holds the golden chalice to
your lips, and pours the life-blood into your mouth. The poor, sick, way-worn pilgrim is
not merely strengthened to walk, but he is borne on eagles' wings. Glorious gospel!
which provides everything for the helpless, which draws nigh to us when we cannot
reach after it—brings us grace before we seek for grace! Here is as much glory in the
giving as in the gift. Happy people who have the Holy Ghost to bring Jesus to them.
From Charles Spurgeon's Morning & Evening - October, Day 22, Evening.
"He shall take of Mine, and shall show it unto you."
— John 16:15
There are times when all the promises and a doctrines of the Bible are of no
avail, unless a gracious hand shall apply them to us. We are thirsty, but too
faint to crawl to the water- brook. When a soldier is wounded in battle it is of
