Aren’t you glad that Jesus goes out of his way to get his people?
Well, I guess Jesus never goes out of his way…he is always right in his way. We may think that he is going out of the way, but he is always doing directly what he wants to do.
We see this once again as we study the lesson before us this week. Jesus heads into “enemy territory” in order to get this Samaritan woman. And thanks God that he did, for in this text we see that this is the kind of God who would go into enemy territory to get us.
