When therefore the LORD knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,…
Some years since there lived in the west of England a well-known character called "Foolish Dick." Not being considered quite sharp, one day he was going for a pitcher of water, when a good old man hailed him with "So, Dick, you are going to the well." "Yes," he replied. "Well, Dick, the woman of Samaria found Jesus at the well." "Did she?" was the answer. "Yes," said the good old Christian. Dick passed on, full of thought; the remark riveted on his mind by the Holy Spirit, quickening him into new life. He thought, "Why should I not find Jesus at the well? Oh, that I could find Him! Will He come to me?" He prayed, and found Christ at the well; left his water-pot to tell his neighbours what be had found, and from that time proved the reality of his conversion by his holy and active life, proclaiming Christ to others.
