“THE GOD OF SECOND CHANCES” (Part 2)

John 4:20-42


Introduction: In the previous message from this chapter (verses 1-19) Jesus leaves Judea and travels north to his home region of Galilee by way of Samaria. He stops on the outskirts of the town of Sychar. There He asks a Samaritan woman for a drink of water from Jacob’s well, and there follows a memorable encounter. Last week we focused on three qualities of Jesus which are seen in the first 19 verses – His sincerity, His humanity, and His sensitivity. Now we focus on four events which take place.


We see in this passage:

I. A LIFE TRANSFORMED (V. 20-26)

a. This woman’s experience is an example of an authentic experience of salvation.

b. There is no disguise, no facade which Christ cannot penetrate.


II. A LESSON TAUGHT AND LEARNED (v. 27, 31-38)

a. Doing God’s will should take precedence over everything else in life.

b. The fields around Waco are white.


III. A WITNESS GIVEN (v. 28-29)

a. The woman left her waterpot.

b. We must leave behind the vestiges of our former selves.


IV. A CITY CONVERTED (v. 30, 39-40)

a. Romans 10:13, 14.

b. Jesus came to save.
