“Living Water” (John 4: 10, HCSB) by Carley Evans


The gift of God of which the woman at the well is unaware stands before her and asks her for a drink of water. She knows enough of Jesus to realize He should not be asking her for anything for she is Samaritan and He is Jewish. Jesus should be avoiding her and her entire geographic region; but He is not. Instead, He is come to make her acquaintance and to ask for her assistance and to give her the greatest gift ever — living water. This water He gives quenches her thirst, meets all her needs at every level of her being. She will never want again as long as she accepts His gift — and His gift is Himself. He is the Living Water.

Come now, let us reason together: God is giving Himself to you. Won’t you take His drink and never thirst again?
