There are some key things to learn from the time that Jesus spoke to the woman of Samaria. #1, That Jesus holds living water and those that drink of it shall never thirst. These are those who are saved. #2, That true worshippers shall worship the Father in Spirit and truth. #3, That Jesus is the promised Messiah, who would come to save us from our sins. Jesus said the lady, “if thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water? Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” (John 4:10-14) Do you believe this to be true? Have you come to Jesus and drank of the water He holds? This water is spiritual and only those who truly believe in Him and walk in the Spirit can taste of it in this life, of which will lead them to heaven in the next.
Jesus also said to the lady, “woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.” (John 4:20-26) Here we learn that those that believe in Jesus will worship the Father in Spirit and truth. Meaning that we don’t do things our way, but seek to be led by the Holy Spirit when we seek the hand of the Father in our lives. So when we read the Bible, pray, and worship, we do it all in order to learn and grow in the faith He has given us. We also praise Him for who He is in our lives. And to conclude, Jesus did confirm that He is the promised Messiah. Only through Him can a person be saved. Yes, salvation is for the Jews, but as Gentiles, we are also grafted in. Praise God that the doors have been opened unto us also. What a Savior we have in Jesus.
Let us pray:
Our Father, who are art in heaven, I come before You now in worship and praise. You are my God and I worship You now and forever. Thank You for sending Jesus to this earth, that our sins may be forgiven because of the cross. He is my Lord and my Savior and I am forever indebted for His sacrifice for mankind. Through Him, have I drank from the living waters, that I might be saved. What a Savior and friend. I give You praise for sending also the Holy Spirit to be our guide. It is through Him that certain instructions are given from You first, and then to Your beloved Son, and then to the Holy Spirit, and then to us. I am able to receive the wisdom that is given through from on high. Yes, God, I come to You in Spirit and truth, that I might learn from my God in heaven and not from people on earth who can deceive me. Help me to continue to learn and grow in the faith. As I come before You in prayer, teach me things that will help me and guide me throughout this life. As I read the Bible, open my eyes to things that I have seen before. Help me to know what Your words in scripture truly mean, that I might better teach others Your truths also. It would never be my desire to lead people astray unknowingly, but to always be in Your perfect will. Through doing so, I can be led from temptation, which only You can stop the fiery darts coming my way. Yes, God, I believe In You. Lead me from temptation and help me safely come to You, being found worthy in judgment. I love You, Lord. Amen.
