Two weeks ago, I was visiting a church with a friend where the pastor was speaking from John 4 (the woman at the well in Samaria). When he boiled it down to two points (and there are many), was amazed at the woman and her approach to Jesus. Not only did she speak plainly to him – she questioned him directly (even boldly), but she spoke of her own life and condition in a matter-of-fact way. She spoke with clarity from where she was – matters of the heart and her life.

Could I be that plain when I talk to Jesus?
