THE MESSAGE

After our Lord spoke to the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well, she left and rushed to tell her townspeople to “Come and see someone who told me everything I ever did.  Could this be the Messiah?”  On the strength of her testimony, many in the town believed in Jesus.  The story of the Samaritan woman is a good example of how our Lord makes his message of salvation known, especially in the use of human instruments, us, to reach out and touch the lives of others.
