As more people hear about and experience Jesus' ministry, His detractors become angrier and the disagreements about His mission get more heated. Today, with the benefit of perspective, what is our excuse for bowing to cultural norms or the pressure to avoid making others uncomfortable? In this passage Jesus shows us that we will always encounter opposition. Will we face that opposition or keep quiet, surrounded by people desperate to know where they can find living water (v. 38)?
