One of the most familiar stories of Jesus is that of His meeting with the Samaritan woman at the well in John 4. The story is simple and straightforward, but the truths expounded upon in it offer some very real implications for us today. Christ wants your life to move in the direction He has planned for you, and He’s preparing for your divine appointment to make that happen. In this lesson, Dr. Mark Lantz examines Christ’s interaction with this woman, what He says to her about her life, her worship, and her very way of thinking, and what He may be saying to us today through this woman at the well.
(Life on Purpose is a teaching series from Dr. Mark Lantz designed to take practical and relevant truths from the Word of God and empower us to live a full life in Christ. Dr. Lantz covers many topics using scriptural principles and encouragement to give us a firm foundation to face the trials and obstacles that can so easily hinder and divert us from the path of blessing that God has for each of us.)
