As Jesus sat by a well in Samaria a woman came to draw water from the well. Jesus invited her to drink the water that He had to offer. His water would satisfy the longing, emptiness and desire of her soul and she would never thirst again. The water that He was referring to was Himself. He was the well that she could drink from and find contentment and peace in her heart.
This woman was looking for something to satisfy a longing in her soul. She was trying to quench the emptiness, dryness, discontentment and lack that was inside of her through relationships. She had been married five times and was living with a man who was not her husband, but that wasn't quenching her thirst.
Many people today are trying to quench what is thirsty inside of them by the water that the world gives. They are trying through relationships, through sex, drugs and alcohol. They are trying through education, through money, through prestige, through popularity, through power, through forms of entertainment, and so on. All of these things may satisfy, but only for a short while.
Jesus offers us what will satisfy. He gives us the water of life-- eternal life so we will never thirst again. He gives us every good and perfect gift. He gives us godliness with contentment. He gives us peace that passes understanding. He gives us power and strength. He gives us grace and liberty. He gives us joy that is unspeakable.
When we drink of this water of life (the salvation that He offers freely), we will never thirst again. All that we are seeking, and all that we lack will be found in Him. So go to the Well and drink the waters of eternal life.
Have a great day. Are you thirsty? Drink water from the well... Jesus is the well of living water.
