Welcome back wonderful people! It is a new month with new promises; We’re in the month of May!
Now I don’t know about you guys, but I’m focusing on knowing more about God. Starting with Jesus’s life and the miracles done by Him, I am super excited to dig deeper than just from what I heard as a kid.
Of course, I had to bring what I read to you, so here’s …
13 Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”
Observation: This passage from vs 1-26 is the story of the woman at Jacob’s well. While traveling, Jesus and his disciples had stopped in that area. Though they were gone, he knew that this Samaritan woman would draw at the well in the day’s heat. He asks her to give her a drink, but she couldn’t wrap her head around who she was talking to or what Jesus was offering her. She was skeptical, questioning if He was greater than Jacob. But Jesus spoke vs 13-14. The natural water that we drink will never be enough to satisfy our thirst. When we drink from the well of living water, we will always be satisfied. We will thirst no longer. In Isaiah 12:3, it says, “Therefore with joy shall we draw water out of the wells of salvation“. Through Christ Jesus, we have salvation and eternal life. That is the well we must drink from!
Application: It’s uncanny to me how the thought process of the Samaritan woman is like that of those who don’t know Jesus. In the very beginning, skepticism and unbelief runs how we feel about faith. We question, make excuses, or say it’s just coincidence. But God is so personal with everything for us. He knows our lives, our fears, our character, our hearts. When the Word confronts us with a promise of a gift, that no man can take away, and a life of eternity, it is impossible to not want to get something so amazing.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank you for being the well of living water. Thank you for the gift of salvation and Holy Spirit. I pray that we continue to chase after your Word and that we choose to life every day. Let us never your love for granted. In Jesus Name. Amen.
