Jesus is walking with His disciples they arrive in Sycar, the disciples split off and went to get food, it was an inspiring moment for the woman who comes for water at a well to see a man (also a Jew) which the Samaritan women and men were not to speak with. But the conversation slowly turns deeper as Jesus speaks to the inner parts of the heart of this woman, He tells her about eternal water, that the water she was dipping for was temporary satisfying in the moment but the water Jesus had was eternal.
Don’t we find ourselves in this place, we want so much to be truly loved, and known. But we are known by God He is an eternal God that loves us unconditionally. And Jesus does, He knows the intimate details of your life, just as He knew this woman, He never met, but knew that this was moment was from His Father, so we can understand ourselves how deep, wide, how far Christ love is for us. Ephesians 3:18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,
As you read through this scripture imagine yourself at the well. Are you searching for the Living water? You can have it, abundantly.
John 4:514 -Jesus Talks With a Samaritan Woman
5 So he came to a town in Samaria called Sychar, near the plot of ground Jacob had given to his son Joseph. 6 Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about noon.
7 When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?” 8 (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.)
9 The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.[a])
10 Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”
11 “Sir,” the woman said, “you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? 12 Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his livestock?”
13 Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
Our walk with Christ teaches us that the water that Jesus gives is free, eternal and gives us true life.
How many people are wavering between the inspiration of the bible, which is God’s word and the world of speakers. God’s Word is truth, very active and living word. It inspires rebukes, encourages and teaches, so much more. The wealth of life’s ups and downs have been written just for you there.
Who is a better teacher than God? NO ONE!
