Discussion for John 4:7

  • Hal Britton for verse 7
    This is most likely my favorite scripture. Having gone through a divorce myself, this scripture proves that a divorced man,(woman) can serve God. The disciples had been with Jesus, what?, two months, one year, two years or maybe even three, regardless they went into town and brought back food. The Samaritan spent ten minutes (?) with Jesus, went into town, overflowed the living water and came back with, not food, but people hungry for a drink from the living well - Jesus Christ.
