This morning I have been working with the fourth Chapter of John, where it relates the story of the Samaritan woman at the well. She must have been still searching for Love or the Christ would have never approached her. When she was told of her past, I am reminded of the old Country and Western song “Looking for Love in all the wrong Places” because Jesus told her that she had had five husbands and the man she was living with then was not her husband.
She was freed from the past that very day and returned home to tell others about the Christ. There is no place that He told her she needed to feel guilty about the past and she was released since in reality, it had nothing to do with her true Spiritual being ever. How very comforting is that thought? Any part of our past that was not Love, was only a dream from which we can awaken.
