56. “Come see a man who told me everything I ever did” (John 4:29a).
Really? The words alone could likely have been said of many men in her community, but when speaking of jesus, the woman means something more. He knows me and yet He loves me. That’s the story of Christ’s love. More than forgiveness–where one can keep another at arms length until the mess is cleaned up. No, real love that pulls us close, even when we are dirty and smell of foolish choices. Love that knows us, has been following us, and stands ready to embrace us and give us what He knows we need. That’s God’s amazing love! No wonder the woman can’t keep quiet about Him.
