John 4:3-14 (Pt. 2)  Thought/Prayer:  Miracle of Water.  Topics:  2 at end.

“He left Judaea and returned to Galilee. His road lay through Samaria, and so He came to Sychar, a town in Samaria near the piece of land that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. Jacob’s Well was there: and accordingly Jesus, tired out with His journey, sat down by the well to rest. It was about six o’clock in the evening.

“Presently there came a woman of Samaria to draw water. Jesus asked her to give Him some water; for His disciples were gone to the town to buy provisions. ‘How is it,’ replied the woman, ‘that a Jew like you asks me, who am a woman and a Samaritan, for water?’ (For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.) ‘If you had known God’s free gift,’ replied Jesus, ‘and who it is that said to you, “Give me some water,” you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.’ ‘Sir,’ she said, ‘you have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep; so where can you get the living water from? Are you greater than our forefather Jacob, who gave us the well, and himself drank from it, as did also his sons and his cattle?’ ‘Every one,’ replied Jesus, ‘who drinks any of this water will be thirsty again; but whoever drinks any of the water that I shall give him will never, never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become a fountain within him of water springing up for the Life of the Ages.’”  WEY (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com.)

Water.  We’re getting some today in the shape of gentle raindrops.  So needed!  Our outdoor plants are perking up, greening up and looking pleased with themselves this spring day.  The miracle of water.  The miracle of Jesus’ water.

Jesus is holding out a cup of clear cold water to every person alive on Earth at this very moment.  Perhaps we could say, that for those of us who have already had the drink from His hand and are eternally refreshed, the water he gives us every day sustains us and refreshes day by day.

For those who have not reached out and taken the cooling cup, it is still in their future to do so.  Those who have not taken the cup are still living in dryness:  many of them don’t realize it.  They live their days and probably get along pretty well; but if they were refreshed from Jesus, how much more meaningful and purposeful would be those days! 

The “woman at the well,” as we call her, did not perhaps know how dry were the seasons of her life.  But her life was filled with uncertainty and seeking for something.  No, this may not be specifically said here, but a woman who has had several husbands and lives with a man who is not her husband (as is related farther into the scripture), lacks stability.  We know that when crops are under-watered, they become dry, becoming lighter in weight, and are prone to becoming separated from the ground and blowing away.  Surely this must describe at least a bit of this woman’s existence.

But Jesus did not hesitate to tell her of her life’s history and of her need for His water.  It did not matter to Him that she was a woman and not usually spoken to by men; or that she was a Samaritan and thus shunned by Jews.  He saw her as being shallowly planted and in need of life-giving moisture.  Of course, He offered it to her in the form of Himself.

So many women going through the agony of an unpredicted pregnancy from whatever circumstance may be dry like this.  So who will offer them Jesus’ water?  You and I.  Whether it’s in person; through friendship; in a presence where abortions are carried out; or through our prayers, we offer His good drink.  All of us who have known . . . and continue to know . . . His blessing of moisture are called to hold out the cup.  It’s the greatest need we humans have.  Jesus’ water.

Topics:  Pray to know when and where, and to whom, to offer Jesus’ living water.
