If you have not experienced Jesus, you have nothing to talk about. Matthew Balentine uses the account of the Jesus's encounter with the Samaritan woman, from John 4:4-26, to show how she experienced the grace of Jesus, how she shared this experience with others, and how she invited them to have the same experience. We can do likewise.
