Jesus practiced incarnational ministry. We’ll see today how Jesus went to where He knew the woman at the well would be, so He could meet her in her place of need. He didn’t tell her to come to church, or come to synagogue….He took church to her! And that’s what we have to do in our own communities—take church to the lost people around us.
