Growing in Knowledge

  • Discuss some of the historical cultural/religious differences between Jews and Samaritans in Jesus’s day.What parallels in our history and lives can be drawn from this?

Feeling Life Deeply

  • The disciples were consumed with Jesus talking to a woman and with lunch. How do we get distracted from the mission of God?
  • Do you need to repent of any unspoken prejudices in your heart? Who are “those people” for you?

Living with Courage

  • When reading the story in John 4 with whom do you most identify with? The broken women? The distracted disciples?
  • How can we make our life flow more like what we see in Jesus? What do we need to repent of in our view of life and they way we live in order to care about people and bring others to Jesus?
