SCRIPTURE

You haven’t got a bucket and the well is deep! So how were YOU thinking of getting living water?

~John 4:11, CT

QUOTE

Christ is not a reservoir but a perpetual spring. His life is continual, active and ever flowing.

~A.B. Simpson

my thoughts red

The Samaritan woman was shocked when Jesus spoke to her and amazed that he would ask her for a drink. The woman responded with a “What, You a Jew are asking me for a drink.” Jesus said “If you knew who I was, you would be asking me for a drink and I would give you living water.” She said, “You don’t have a bucket and this well is deep, how are you going to give me a drink? Are you greater than our father Jacob?”

To answer her last question: “Yes madam, Jesus is infinitely greater than Jacob [Ya’akov].” Jesus doesn’t need a bucket because He is the well and the spring that furnishes the water. We need a bucket but not Jesus. The water in Jacobs well is just like the water we drink every day. It is necessary for life here on earth but it satisfies us for only moments. Our physical body requires that we drink and drink again. We can drink a gallon of water but it will not last; it is a temporary fix. Jesus has something that will last for eternity. You drink the Living Water and you will never thirst again, ever.
