Just then his disciples came back. They marveled that he was talking with a woman, but no one said, “What do you seek?” or, “Why are you talking with her?” So the woman left her water jar and went away into town and said to the people, “Come, see a man who told me all that I ever did. Can this be the Christ?”
Many Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, “He told me all that I ever did.” So when the Samaritans came to him, they asked him to stay with them, and he stayed there two days. And many more believed because of his word. They said to the woman, “It is no longer because of what you said that we believe, for we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this is indeed the Savior of the world.”
—John 4:27-29, 39-42

It started with one woman. A Samaritan woman who had bounced from husband to husband no less. Jesus knew all about her, but still accepted her. His wisdom was beyond any on earth, and although she was shunned by her community, she had to run back and tell them what she had experienced. Soon Jesus’ wisdom permeated the whole village and many believed He was the Savior. If it feels like you are standing all alone, remember the Samaritan woman who did not keep the wisdom of Jesus to herself. When you share His wisdom with others, you never know how many might come to know the Savior because you did!
