Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 54

54. Just then the disciples returned and were surprised to find him talking with a woman (John 4:27).

Jesus surprises us in this way all the time. Who He speaks to, who He makes himself available to, who He loves always comes as a shock when we begin thinking ourselves to be better than others. Yes, there were many sociological factors that would prevent this conversation, but God dwells above societal boundaries. He reaches beyond any boundary we might construct in order to rescue those who are in need. Of course, that’s the one barrier He won’t reach across–the one that we build to insist we don’t need Him. But to those who see their need–who are poor in spirit–theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.
