Jesus reshaped the way the Samaritan woman at the well saw Him. She began thinking Jesus was an ordinary Jew, but before the conversation was over, she recognized Him as the Messiah.
Jesus then helped the apostles look at the multitude of Samaritans from a different perspective, a harvest needing to be harvested.
There is an interesting lesson here – How we see Jesus changes the way we see others. As leaders we desperately need to see Jesus from a biblical perspective and recognize that all people deserve to be seen in need of His grace.
This is the vision godly leaders need.
