JOHN 4:3-43

  • JESUS TEACHIM WOMAN BILONG SAMARIA AND OLKETA NARAWAN

  • WORSHIP WEA GOD HAPI LONG HEM

Taem Jesus and olketa disaepol lusim Judea for go long Galilee long north, olketa go pas long area wea olketa kolem Samaria. Olketa taed fogud. Long midolday, olketa rest saed long wanfala well wea klosap long taon wea nem bilong hem Sychar. Maet Jacob nao digim well hia or peim samwan for digim datwan staka handred year go finis. Long taem bilong iumi, datfala well hem stap klosap long taon wea olketa kolem Nablus.

Jesus rest saed long datfala well and olketa disaepol go long taon for baem kaikai. Then nomoa, wanfala woman bilong Samaria kam for tekem wata. Jesus sei long hem: “Mi laekem wata for drink.”—John 4:7.

Olketa Jew and pipol bilong Samaria no savve story tugeta bikos olketa Jew heitim olketa bilong Samaria, and olketa bilong Samaria tu heitim olketa Jew. So datfala woman sapraes and sei long Jesus: “Hao nao iu askem wata long mi? Iu wanfala Jew and mi woman bilong Samaria!” Jesus sei long hem: “Iu no savve long datfala present from God and iu no savve long man wea sei long iu, ‘Mi laekem wata for drink.’ Sapos iu savve, bae iu askem hem and hem bae givim iu wata wea savve mekem man laef.” Woman hia sei: “Well hia hem deep tumas ia and iu no garem eni baket tu. So wea nao iu tekem disfala wata wea savve mekem man laef? Waswe, iu winim grani bilong mifala Jacob, wea givim disfala well long mifala? Hem and olketa son bilong hem and olketa animal bilong hem tu drink long disfala well.”—John 4:9-12.

Jesus sei long hem: “Eniwan wea drinkim disfala wata bae hem laek drink moa bihaen. Eniwan wea drinkim wata wea mi givim, bae no need for drink moa. Wata wea mi givim long hem bae hem olsem springwata insaed long hem for mekem hem laef olowe.” (John 4:13, 14) Nomata Jesus taed, hem willing for storyim long datfala woman olketa trufala toktok wea savve mekem man laef olowe.

Datfala woman sei long Jesus: “Givim kam disfala wata long mi, mekem mi no need for drink moa and bae mi no kam olowe long disfala ples for tekem wata.” Luk olsem Jesus changem story and sei long hem: “Iu go talem hasband bilong iu for kam.” Woman hia sei: “Mi no garem hasband ia.” Bat masbi datfala woman hem seke fogud taem Jesus sei long hem: “Taem iu sei, ‘Mi no garem hasband,’ iu tok tru ia bikos iu marit faevfala taem finis, and man wea iu stap witim distaem, hem no hasband bilong iu tu.”—John 4:15-18.

Woman hia barava sapraes long wanem Jesus talem, and hem sei: “Distaem nao mi just luksavve iu wanfala profet.” Next samting wea datfala woman talem showimaot hem interest long olketa spiritual samting. Hem sei: “Olketa grani bilong mifala [olketa bilong Samaria] worship long disfala maunten [Maunt Gerizim, wea stap klosap], bat iufala olketa Jew sei Jerusalem nao ples for worship.”—John 4:19, 20.

Bat Jesus explainim hao ples for worship hem no important. Hem sei: “Bae wanfala taem hem kam wea iufala bae no worshipim God long disfala maunten and bae no worshipim hem long Jerusalem tu.” Then Jesus sei long hem: “Wanfala taem bae kam, and taem hia hem start distaem, wea olketa wea worshipim God long stretfala wei  bae worshipim hem followim holy spirit and followim samting wea tru. God lukaotem kaen pipol olsem for worshipim hem.”—John 4:21, 23, 24.

Samting wea important long God nao, hem no ples wea pipol worshipim hem, bat for olketa worshipim hem long stretfala wei. Datfala woman tinghae long datwan, and sei: “Mi savve Messiah bae kam, wea olketa kolem hem Christ. Taem hem kam bae hem storyim gud evri samting long mifala.”—John 4:25.

Then Jesus sei long hem: “Mi nao datfala man.” (John 4:26) Datfala woman hem kam long midolday for tekem wata nomoa, and Jesus talem hem stret hem nao datfala Messiah! Datwan hem barava spesol samting bikos Jesus no talem diswan long eni narawan yet.

Olketa disaepol bilong Jesus kam bak from Sychar and tekem kam kaikai. Jesus stap yet long datfala well bilong Jacob, and hem story witim wanfala woman bilong Samaria. Taem olketa disaepol arrive nomoa, datfala woman lusim botol bilong hem and go long taon.

Hem sei: “Kaikai bilong mi hem for duim waka wea man wea sendem mi kam hem laekem mi for duim and for finisim datfala waka.”—John 4:32-34.

 Jesus no storyim waka for harvestim barley wea bae kamap bihaen samting olsem fofala month. Bat hem storyim wanfala spiritual harvest. Hem sei: “Lukim go olketa planteison hia.

So man wea plantim datfala planteison and man wea harvestim datwan, tufala evriwan hapi.”—John 4:35, 36.
