Sermon illustrations on the woman at the well
Some of the stories will be very familiar and others will probably be new to you. These ancient encounters are valuable for what they reveal about Jesus and what they teach us about the common problems of life. Although years have passed since Jesus walked on the earth, his words remain incredibly relevant. Times change but the human heart remains the same. We have the same hopes and fears and dreams and doubts.SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: Woman At The Well - Billy Graham

If you are a pastor or lay person who wants to use this to preach in church — that is why I posted it. I pray He uses this sermon in a mighty way through you. God bless you in your ministry. The audio as I preached it is on YouTube here. And there was a time in my life that I needed to hear this scripture from the perspective of the woman.
So here she is, the sixth hour — noon — degrees, expecting to see all the friends she normally sees at noon at the well — nobody — you get it? Nobody goes to the well at noon.
But this day would be different. But Jesus knew. The Scripture tells us that Jesus needed to go through Samaria. Samaritans had a heritage of part Jew and part pagan. And The Jews despised the Samaritans. But one person helped. Who was it? The Good Samaritan — and we still use that term today.
Jesus says it was the one they despised the most who was the good neighbor. Jewish people had such a hatred for the Samaritans that they would go around Samaria.
It would be the equivalent of people in Ridgeley avoiding Maryland on their way to Morgantown. So here is Jesus in an area that the Jews hated — Samaria — meeting a woman even the Samaritans would have looked down on. When she shows up, Jesus was already there waiting for her. And He offers her life. He offers her a new life — he offers her salvation.
You are not beyond the reach of God. And for someone here today, this may well be the appointment with Jesus you never knew you had. Have you been chasing a relationship thinking that will make you happy? Cars, Trucks, four wheelers, clothes?
Switching jobs? And what happens? You see, we were created with this void that nothing else but Jesus can fill. You can find joy. You can find fulfillment. I would tell my friends that it was one of the best appointments in the state. But I can tell you this. Here at Wesley Chapel, I believe with all my heart that I have one of the best appointments in the state.
And I think that probably has less to do with you and less to do with me and more to do with Jesus. Some of you needed to hear about the void that only Jesus could fill and how He will save you. But others of you need to hear this —.
We get uncomfortable when we talk about being like Jesus, but Jesus said for those who are His that He is in them with His Spirit. For those who say they accept Jesus — for those who call themselves Christians and have a relationship with Jesus — the Holy Spirit has come and set up residence in you.
Anyone who drinks the water I give will never thirst—not ever. The water I give will be an spring within you, gushing fountains of endless life. And God sent her out with a living spring, gushing fountains of life in Haiti. And we may get tired in the journey. The message for some of you today may be to slow down and take a break. The message for all of us who call ourselves followers of Jesus is that we have flowing within us, gushing fountains of endless life.
And just like Jesus did — we meet people at the well, offering them the living water. Jesus will set up divine appointments for us.
The woman at the well has quite a few messages that can be learned from a female prospective as well as male. Thank you for sharing and giving some additional enlightenment on this story.

Thanks for your words of encouragement. May the Spirit anoint your words as you reach those at your church. Thnq paster….. God has called me to do his work ……. He will supply you with what you need.

Sermon: Meeting God at Wells
Hot tears splashed down my cheeks as my new husband stared at me in confusion. I had been studying the creation story when I stumbled across the strong Hebrew word God used when creating Eve: the ezer. In that moment, God's intentions leapt off of the printed page and started a revolution in my heart.
Foster: Well, I have this really outdated philosophy about success in a corporate structure, and you're going to think I'm really romantic and a fool, but here it goes. I think that if you are moral and you're right and you have the right ethics, that eventually somewhere down the line you're going to end up being successful. In our business, anyway, you're always going up and down, and at some point you're going to find yourself down. You're going to need somebody to say, "Hey, I remember you. You're the one that treated me right, and I'm going to lend a hand out to you
10. The Woman at the Well (John 4:1-42)
Scripture: John Denomination: Anglican. The story begins with Jesus on his way to Galilee. He comes to a town called Sychar and decides to stop for a rest. He sits down for a rest beside a well. The disciples have gone off into this Samaritan village to buy some food and then a woman arrives in the normal course of her day to fetch water. In other words, this is an everyday encounter. They should, by all rights, ignore each other.
The Woman at the Well : Christ Speaks to the Problem of a Guilty Past
John Jesus left Judea and started back to Galilee. Oh, Samaria! That was the strange place, the half-breed place, the place you are not supposed to visit if you are well brought up! All of us had some section of town when we were growing up that we were not supposed to visit.

Jesus Meets the Woman at the Well – John 4:5-26 Free Written Sermon
By Dr. Philip W. McLarty The story of the woman at the well is familiar to most churchgoers. I had the privilege of studying the Gospel of John in seminary with Dr. Fred Gealy — at the time, a respected and well-known Bible scholar. He now reigns in the Church Triumphant; even so, I tip my hat to him, as I offer this sermon in his honor. They talk.
I originally preached this sermon in Lent, Life is dependent on it. In biblical times this meant wells and springs were life.

The son had brought a metal detector with him, and all of the sudden, it started to squeal. They decided to dig up whatever was buried, and what they brought out of the ground was a metal bowl, that turned out to be over years old, buried by Vikings, and it was filled with over gold and silver coins! They thought they were just out for a normal afternoon walk — but they ended up finding a great treasure that day. More than just some silver and gold coins, this woman found eternal life.
