A Life-Changing Conversation

John 4:16-30

An evangelist friend once told me that when he was flying, his seatmates often tried to make small talk by asking, “So, what do you do for a living?” He had endured shocked expressions, blank stares, and even verbal attacks when he gave a straightforward reply. So, he began answering, “Fire insurance.” When they asked what kind, He replied, “Eternal.” My friend was not attempting to deceive his questioners; instead, he was trying to direct the conversation toward a spiritually vital subject: eternal life.

The woman at the well in John 4 tried to distract Jesus by raising an old point of contention between Jews and Samaritans regarding the right place to worship God. Jesus didn’t fall for it. God was far more interested in the personal devotion and open honesty of His worshipers than in where they worshiped.

In this confrontation between the truth of God, embodied in Jesus Christ, and the truth about her life, this woman was transformed into a fervent evangelist.
