Daughters of Grace Series: The Woman of Samaria
Last week we continued a study from the Daily Grace Co. called Daughters of Grace. We talked about Anna, her story, characteristics, and what we can learn from her life. This week we are talking about The Woman of Samaria. You may know her more commonly called The Woman at the Well. Her story can be found in John 4:1-42.

1. What do we learn about God and His character in the life of the Woman of Samaria?
This story shows God's faithfulness in reaching those who are considered "outcasts" or might seem too sinful for His redemption. But this story shows that no sin is too great for God's faithfulness and grace towards us. The story of the Woman of Samaria also demonstrates how countercultural Jesus was during Biblical times. He spoke to this Samarian woman, both defining attributes were frowned against for a Jewish man to speak to. This didn't matter though. Jesus shows us that everyone is equal in His eyes, and we each can be redeemed by Him.
2. What character qualities, positive or negative, do we see demonstrated in the life of the Woman of Samaria?

- Only through Jesus can we receive eternal life
- Only God can fill a void in our hearts
