Did you know that instead of running from failure, Jesus ran toward it? He did. He chose to spend the majority of His time in ministry around people He knew would reject Him. Jesus knew that a prophet has no honor in his hometown, and yet Jesus spent most of the second and third years of His ministry right around His hometown. Where people had no faith, where people didn’t believe Him, where people tried to throw Him off a cliff!

Jesus had incredible success in Samaria, many people believed Him! But today we are going to read about how Jesus left a place of incredible success and walked straight into a place He knew He would fail. Why? Because Jesus wanted to show us that life is not about chasing success. It’s about embracing failure and finding the love of the Father there. And that’s how we discover the greatest success.
