If You Only Knew
DAY 3 OF 5
When we encounter Jesus—really encounter Him—we’re never the same. This woman would’ve come to the well every day to draw water. This was part of her livelihood, her routine, her daily tasks. However, after she had a brief visit with Jesus, it’s as if everything in her life was interrupted. The old water jar was easily forgotten and left behind as she ran to tell others about her encounter with Jesus. She now had learned of the living water and her life would never be the same.
Once we taste the living water of God, we have no need for the old things that used to temporarily quench our thirst. They no longer serve a purpose in our lives. There is no water that can satisfy like the living water of the Spirit. The Samaritan woman was desperate to spread the good news of Jesus and she brought others to Him. He had pierced her heart and shattered her world as she knew it. He saw her and she felt known. Through their conversation, He proved to her that He knew her intimately and she was astonished by His words. He knew things about her that no one but God would know, and yet He didn’t condemn her, but led her to true life. “Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did” (John 4:29).
What water jars do you need to cast aside? Are you drinking from the wrong well and finding yourself unfulfilled? Cast the old aside and drink from the well of eternal life.
