Some time ago I wrote a blog post about the living water Jesus gave to the Samaritan woman. The post was titled, Living Water and it was about the woman's encounter with Jesus.
I want to remind you that Jesus will give you everything you need and some of what you want. He will see to it that you never have to become thirsty (or hungry for that matter) regarding anything you may need in your life. It's amazing to me how many people truly do not believe that. Throughout my conversations with people I'm surprised how many don't think Jesus will do what He said He would do. Jesus is a man of His word and if He said we would never thirst again, He means it.
The Samaritan woman is one instance of His power (John 4:1-45). The Samaritan woman is one instance of His love that gave her the confidence to know who she was in Christ. And guess what she did after her amazing encounter with Him? She opened her mouth and invited other Samaritans to encounter Him. That's what Christianity is all about. It's about doing all we can to ensure nobody else is thirsty like we once were.
I have much respect for the Samaritan woman, because she wanted to help others. She didn't just take her knowledge and become mum about it. She used what the Lord blessed her with and she went forth with it. Who do you have around you who is thirsty? Feel free to tell them that there is eternal water that is available to them and their life will be changed forever, for the better, that they will never thirst again, because Jesus will be all they want and all they need. In John 4:13/14 Jesus said, whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.
That's what we can tell people who need an encounter with Jesus.
