“At this point Jesus said to her, Go, call your husband and come back here. The woman answered, I have no husband. Jesus said to her, You have spoken truly in saying, I have no husband. For you have had five husbands, and the man you are now living with is not your husband. In this you have spoken truly.” John 4:16-18
This is where the rubber meets the road. Jesus was getting into this woman’s business, but to her credit, she did not lie, she told him the truth. I think we see her spiritual eyes beginning to open a little. She seems to be starting to see that this man is more than just a man. What a history, though, five husbands and now living with a man she is not married to! Now we know why she was going to the well alone and at noon. The other women would not associate with her.
Do you ever feel like you are not accepted? Jesus has the answer.
