God responds to the plight of the afflicted and marginalized with intervention, action, and compassion.
Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.” John 4:10
In John 4:1-42, it is remarkable that Jesus even talked to the Samaritan woman at the well—it was totally taboo. It was generally improper in the ancient Middle East for women to speak in public with men who were not their husbands. Moreover, there was great hostility between Jews and Samaritans, and they did not interact with each other, regardless of gender. Jesus’ act of simply speaking to this woman, let alone choosing her as a messenger of the gospel, was a strong demonstration to us of how we are to interact with those who are marginalized and living in sexual brokenness, as was this woman.
“He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, ‘out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.'” John 7:38
