We have all read chapter 4 of the book of John where Jesus has a conversation with the Samaritan woman and we see that discussion that there used to be between Jews and Samaritans, of what was the right place to worship God. Jesus does not keep silence at the words of the Samaritan woman that the correct place of worship was Samaria and not Jerusalem, the words of our Lord are the following:
21 “Woman,” Jesus replied, “believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.
22 You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews.
Jesus speaks to her in a very clear way and without covering anything of the “Truth of God” and says to her: “you worship what you do not know”. In short, “you worship God, but you do not know God.” Imagine, dear reader, what a strong blow it must be for this Samaritan woman to hear these words from Jesus, perhaps she thought that she had spent all her life worshiping a God who knew, but now finds Jesus telling her that they do not know what they worship. Do you know the God you love? Do you know enough about your God? Try not to be in the same place as this woman. There are so many brothers in our congregations, that they raise their hands and sing all the praises and do not know anything about God, they have only heard of one God, but they do not have a personal relationship with that God.
