An Epic Invitation



John 4:5-9:

So he came to a town of Samaria called Sychar, near the field that Jacob had given to his son Joseph. Jacob's well was there; so Jesus, wearied as he was from his journey, was sitting beside the well. It was about the sixth hour.[a]

A woman from Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give me a drink.” (For his disciples had gone away into the city to buy food.) The Samaritan woman said to him, “How is it that you, a Jew, ask for a drink from me, a woman of Samaria?” (For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.)


John 4:10:

Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, ‘Give me a drink,’ you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.”


John 7:37-39a

“Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’” But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive.”


John 4:16-17

“He told her, “Go, call your husband and come back.” “I have no husband,” she replied.”


John 4:19

“The woman said to Him, “Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet.”


John 4:26

Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am He.” John 4:26


John 4:28-30

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?” They went out of the town and were coming to him.


  1. Jesus saw her

  2. Jesus spoke truth to her

  3. Jesus saved her


“Many Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony.” John 4:39


“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 4:42


  1. She was compelled to share


  1. Jesus saw me

  2. Jesus spoke truth to me

  3. Jesus saved me


Am I compelled to share?


Why are we not compelled to share?


We are not experiencing God


We are too pre-occupied


We become evangelists for whatever satisfies us!



Jesus saw her

Jesus spoke truth to her

Jesus saved her
