“And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on Him for the saying of the woman, which testified, ‘He told me all that ever I did.’ So when the Samaritans were come unto Him, they besought Him that He would tarry with them: and He abode there two days.
And many more believed because of His own word; and said unto the woman, ‘Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard Him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.'” John 4:39-42 (KJB)
It is the testimony of Scripture that Jesus went through the land of Samaria; a forbidden journey for the Jew; and by Divine providence encountered this woman at the well. He told her all that she had ever done (that is her testimony in verse 39).
She is so excited she forgot what she came to the well for; because she had met the One who gave her living water. You know she did leave her waterpot behind (John 4:28).
People of the city came out to meet this Man who knew people’s hearts, minds, and their lives. No one could do that except Deity – the One True God.
When the people meet Jesus their minds, and hearts are persuaded by His words. The woman who first believed told where to find Him, and they heard Him and believed.
One of the first things the Christian does upon our salvation, our coming to faith in Him, is that we want to tell people about Him. People need to know the Lord God. We know the Way. Let us love Jesus so much that we cannot keep our mouths shut concerning Him. We cannot make people believe; neither do we desire to force them, or make them; but we can tell them. Then possibly they be Believing Him and loving Him.
