Part 2: The Samaritan Woman
As we read in the Bible, we find men and women whose lives intersected with Jesus and they were never the same again… their lives were changed forever. And the thing is, Jesus wants the same for you and me today. During this series, we’ll be looking at different Jesus encounters in the Bible and seeing what God has to say. Because in today’s world, change can be exciting or scary, but Jesus knows exactly how much we need it.Fill-in Notes

- What impacted you the most from Dennis’ story?
- The Samaritan woman had been married five times and living a life that did not satisfy. Have you ever tried to find meaning and purpose apart from Jesus? What kinds of things did you pursue in order satisfy the longing of your soul? Was the result really satisfying?
- Sometimes a Christian can be the biggest hindrance or prejudice to someone coming to Jesus. It what ways do Christians do this? What is the likelihood others will approach you to start conversations where you can share the gospel with them?
- As we share the Gospel message with people, what lessons did you learn from Jesus and His encounter with the Samaritan woman?
- One of the key aspects of evangelism is breaking barriers. What are some relational and loving ways (1 Peter 3:15–16) we can break barriers with those around us in order to have chances to share the gospel with them?
- When you study the Bible, is your primary purpose to gain knowledge or get to know the God of the Word? What’s the difference between the two? How should getting to know the God of the Word and knowledge work together? 2 Peter 1:5–9.
We all know someone who is the “woman at the well.” Pray and make a commitment to share the message of living water that leads to eternal life with someone this week.
