A Samaritan Woman Finds Jesus The Answer To Her Thirst JOHN 4:1-26
In JOHN Chapter 4 Jesus meets a Samaritan woman desperately looking for love, who has been involved in a series of broken relationships.
At the culmination of their meeting, Jesus declares:
“If you only knew the gift God has for you and who you are speaking to, you would ask me, and I would give you living water.............Anyone who drinks the water from your well will soon become thirsty again. But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.” Not surprisingly the woman replies: “Oh sir! Please give me some of this water! Then I’ll never be thirsty again, and I won’t have to come here to get water.” (JOHN 4:10-15)
She discovers Jesus is the only one able to satisfy her thirst for spiritual life.
