One if the most simple, yet profound verses in the Bible is John 4:4, which says, “And he must needs go through Samaria.”
Samaria was a land where the mixed people of the Samaritans lived and were considered unclean by the Jews. The Jews would go out of their way to go around that area.
Jesus “must needs” go there. Why? Because there was a women (which was a sinner) that needed help.
He went to a place most would not go, to help a woman most would not help.
We should look to do the same. Many people need help, and it is our job to get to them.
