Convicted


 John 4:40-42

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 truly the Saviour of the world.”



It started with a thirst

A basic need

And led to an encounter

An encounter, if truth be told

That she'd hoped to avoid

Yet, as her bucket plumbed the depths

drawing up life giving water

So her encounter dredged up

all manner of things

she could never have anticipated

even in her wildest dreams

A man who engaged her in conversation

Who answered all her questions

And met all her challenges

A man who told her all about herself

A Messiah who revealed

truth to a stranger

and set off a cataclysm of change

in the Samaritan woman

and in those to whom she witnessed

Not just through testimony

but through personal conviction

as people experienced for themselves

Life-giving water

from a well

that never runs dry

Encounter, Transformation, Renewal, Commitment

A call to discipleship

made new in the water of life.
