Living Water Satisfies Your Needs
Jesus passed through Samaria and sat by the well tired from his journey. He asked a woman to give Him a drink while she was drawing water. She was amazed that He would ask her for a drink since Jews had no dealings with Samaritans. If she knew the gift of God and who He was, Jesus said she would have asked Him to give her living water. Though the well was deep, she wondered where she could get living water. Jesus said that everyone who drinks of this water thirsts again, but whoever drinks of the water He gives shall never thirst since it is a "well of water springing up to eternal life." When the woman asked for this water to satisfy her thirst, Jesus pointed out she have had five husbands and one she was living with was not her husband. She tried changing the subject by saying He was a prophet and where Samaritans and Jews worship. Jesus said true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth. After saying she knew the Messiah was coming, Jesus said He was Him (John 4:1-26). Living water satisfies your needs as you worship God in spirit and truth.
Living Water Triggers Powerful Ministry
The disciples marveled that Jesus was speaking to a woman. She left her waterpot, went to the city and told the men she found Christ who knew everything she had done. Jesus said to His disciples that His food was to do the will of God who sent Him and to accomplish His work. He told them to look at the fields since they were ripe for harvest. Both sower and reaper gather fruit for eternal life. You are sent to reap for that which you have not labored (John 4:27-38). Availability to God's work reaps fruit for eternal life even though you haven't labored for it.
Living Water Convinces Your Heart to Know Christ
Many Samaritans believed in Him because of the word of the woman who testified that "He told me all the things that I have done." Jesus stayed two days and many more believed. They heard for themselves from Jesus that He is the Savior of the world (John 4:39-42). Jesus convinces that He is your Savior by revealing what's in your heart.
Living Water Leads to Rejection or Acceptance
He went into Galilee testifying that a prophet has no honor in own country. The Galileans received Him having seen all the things He did in Jerusalem at the feast (John 4:43-45). Family and people in your hometown may reject you, but strangers will accept you.
Living Water Produces Physical and Spiritual Healing
A royal official whose son was near death at Capernaum requested Jesus to heal him. Jesus said that unless people see signs and wonders they will not believe. The official believed Jesus word that his son lived, which was confirmed by his slaves. He learned that the fever left his son at the same time Jesus said his son lived. He and his whole household believed after Jesus' second sign (John 4:46-54).
