A Call To Come To The Lord For Salvation
Isaiah 55 NIV
Invitation to the Thirsty
1 "Come, all you who are thirsty,
come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
without money and without cost..
2 Why spend money on what is not bread,
and your labor on what does not satisfy?
Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,
and your soul will delight in the richest of fare.
3 Give ear and come to me;
hear me, that your soul may live.
I will make an everlasting covenant with you,
my faithful love promised to David.
6 Seek the LORD while he may be found;
call on him while he is near.
7 Let the wicked forsake his way
and the evil man his thoughts.
Let him turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for he will freely pardon.
John 4 ESV
Jesus and the Woman of Samaria
3 He left Judea and departed(B) again for Galilee. 4(C) And he had to pass through Samaria.
7 A woman from Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, (F) "Give me a drink."
9 The Samaritan woman said to him, "How is it that you, a Jew, ask for a drink from me, a woman of Samaria?" ((G) For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.) 10..."If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, 'Give me a drink,' you would have asked him, and he would have given you(H) living water." 11...."Sir, you have nothing to draw water with, and the well is deep. Where do you get that living water? 12(I) Are you greater than our father Jacob?(J)
16 Jesus said to her, "Go,(O) call your husband, and come here." 17The woman answered him, "I have no husband." Jesus said to her, "You are right in saying, 'I have no husband'; 19The woman said to him, "Sir, I perceive that(P) you are(Q) a prophet. 20(R) Our fathers worshiped on(S) this mountain, but you say that(T) in Jerusalem is(U) the place where people ought to worship." 21Jesus said to her, (V) "Woman, believe me,(W) the hour is coming when(X) neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father.
27 Just then(AI) his disciples came back. They marveled that he was talking with a woman, but no one said, "What do you seek?" or, "Why are you talking with her?" 28So the woman left her water jar and went away into town and said to the people, 29"Come, see a man(AJ) who told me all that I ever did. Can this be the Christ?" 30They went out of the town and were coming to him.
32 But he said to them, "I have food to eat that you do not know about." 33So the disciples said to one another,(AL) "Has anyone brought him something to eat?" 34Jesus said to them, (AM) "My food is(AN) to do the will of him who sent me and(AO) to accomplish his work. 35Do you not say, 'There are yet four months, then comes the harvest'? Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that(AP) the fields are white for harvest.
39 Many Samaritans(AW) from that town believed in him(AX) because of(AY) the woman’s testimony, "He told me all that I ever did." 40So when the Samaritans came to him, they asked him to stay with them, and he stayed there two days. 41And many more believed(AZ) because of his word. 42They said to the woman, "It is no longer because of what you said that we believe, for we have heard for ourselves,(BA) and we know that this is indeed(BB) the Savior(BC) of the world."

In John chapter 4 we have a remarkable account of Jesus meeting a Samaritan woman. The encounter was life-changing, and shows us the compassion Jesus had for the women of His day. This immoral woman came from a despised ethnic group. Yet she was among the first to whom Jesus revealed His role as Messiah.
