An ordinary day in an extraordinary way, Jesus and his disciples walk through a town in Samaria called Sychar, walking along the road He tells them to go ahead into town and get food for them. Jesus sat down at Jacob’s well for a drink
But it was more than a drink; there was a divine appointment at the well.
There He sat and a Samaritan woman came along to fetch water, Jesus asked her for a drink, she replied “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman, how can you ask me for a drink? John4: 9 (because Jews didn’t associate with Samaritans)
Jesus answered “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.” John 4:10
How often is it that Jesus invites us to drink of His living water, to sit in His presence and know Him?
Do you seek this?
The woman was seeking for the Messiah to come and save them, but suddenly there He was asking her for a drink, offering her eternal life.
Would you recognize Jesus if He spoke to your heart?
She went for water, Jesus had something better for her, Jesus offers eternal life. Everything that is on earth is put here for you, for your pleasure as God gives it to us but life here is not lasting. Jesus offers us eternal life.
Jesus meets us in times of our lives that are unexpected, but just like the woman at the well in need of the living water, are you running after things that will satisfy you only temporarily or are you seeking Jesus?
Only Jesus can satisfy our thirst through the living water He provides.
Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.
