Jesus also knew where the question would lead and that the conversation would change this woman’s life.
It really didn’t matter what her answer was going to be, He was going to have the conversation. So, it isn’t about the question as much as it is about the conversation. True with Jesus. True with us. But it did start with a question.
God’s goal for our life is to have conversations. He can quench our thirst. It starts with a conversation.
A woman, a Samaritan, came to draw water. Jesus said, “Would you give me a drink of water?” (His disciples had gone to the village to buy food for lunch.) (John 4:7-8)
