Jesus said, “Everyone who drinks this water will get thirsty again and again. Anyone who drinks the water I give will never thirst—not ever. The water I give will be an artesian spring within, gushing fountains of endless life.” John 4:13-14
I believe when Jesus came to save us, He wasn’t looking for the perfect us. He came to save those who were lost, dying in sin, He came to claim us as His own and love the forgotten, heal the sick and the depressed. Jesus died for you so that He would rebuild the relationship with you that the enemy tried to destroy. He did that in spite of your sin because He loves you.
Are you thirsty?
Just like the Samaritan woman at the well, God wants you to drink from His living water and you will never thirst again. God’s living water gives life. If you feeling thirsty be desperate enough and seek God’s presence and you will never thirst again.
Let’s look at the story of the Samaritan woman… John 4 – The Samaritan woman who came to the village well around noon one day, and Jesus was there waiting for her. She came to the well at the hottest part of the day, trying to avoid people because she had a bad reputation. When she came near to Jesus, He began to talk to her, which surprised her because the Jewish people of the day despised and didn’t associate with the Samaritans. She slowly but surely eased a little closer and began to listen to what He said. Jesus was offering her salvation that day, which He called “living water, a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” Then He began to ask her about her life, and He revealed that He knew she had been married five times and that the man she was living with then was not her husband. She couldn’t believe it! Jesus knew everything about her bad reputation, and yet He was still talking to her and even offering her “living water”! She felt the closeness! He was saying, “I know everything about you, and I still love you. I want to give you the living water that will fix every problem you have…or ever will have.” She was so touched by this revelation that she ran back into town to tell people about this man. “There is a man at the well who knows everything I’ve ever done and yet He loves me!” This woman had been an outcast. People had shunned and labeled her. But she was so confident that Jesus was the Messiah that she stripped off all those labels and ran to tell the very people who judged her! This brokenhearted woman, who had been crushed by the trials of life, did not care what they thought and only wanted them to experience His love. And because of her testimony, “Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him” (John 4:39).
The story of the Samaritan woman at the well teaches us that God loves us in spite of our messed up, broken and sinful lives. God values us enough to actively seek us, to welcome us to intimacy. He loves you just as you are no matter what you have done or what they’ve done to you. He will never leave you nor forsake you no matter what. God will never shun you or even criticize you. He doesn’t look at what you’re doing wrong and walk away from you. No! He draws near to you and loves you anyway.
The Samaritan woman was an outcast from her own people, she needed to be wanted, to be cared for when no one, not even herself, could see anything of value in her— but God did. Her one moment with Jesus at well, changed everything. She found grace and favor at the feet of Jesus. You can to.
Do you ever feel like this Samaritan woman, an outcast, nobody wants to be your friend, forsaken, unloved, rejected,you don’t love yourself and you don’t see how valuable you are. Don’t listen to the enemies lies, no matter what you have done this is no the end, your life is just beginning because God is going to turn it around for good and in your favor so that His name will be glorified. The Bible says If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9. Before this Samaritan woman could embrace the Savior, she had to concede the full burden of her sins. In Christ all your sins are forgiven and He doesn’t remember them anymore. God’s love for you is unconditional nothing will ever change that.
Redemption and restoration in your life will only come to you when you recognize and are desperate for a spiritual life with God. You can quench that thirst in your life and obtain God’s living water when you deeply recognize that you are spiritually thirsty and you need God. Then Jesus will give you living water and you will never thirst again.
