KEY SCRIPTURE: John 4:11 KJV “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?”
(We are still drawing lessons from Jesus’ encounter with the Samaritan woman)
The Lord talked to her about the gift of God, that is the living water that will satisfy her thirst forever, yet, she was thinking purely about natural conditions. She asked, you don’t have any means of drawing out the water. Please note, the man without Christ is totally natural and is very oblivious to anything spiritual. Let us always learn from the master. He did not try to prove anything from the natural point of view. Your message is the word of God, and you must focus on the saving power of the word.
The Lord said the following John 4:13 KJV, Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again… He added ,”but whosoever that would drink the water that I give will never thirst again”. You must always bear in mind that it is the Holy Spirit who can convert an individual, and we must strictly follow His leading to bring the truth home to the individual. This is the reason we must pray diligently for the people we share the gospel with. From the Lord’s answers, we see that, He kept emphasising His superiority and His ability to bless, or save. He said the water He gives shall be in the one who receives it, a well of living water unto eternal life. No one ever spoke like our master Jesus. He said I have the ability to give eternal life.
When the woman kept hearing the wonderful and amazing things that Jesus could give her, she asked Him to give her the living water. Would this Samaritan woman have asked the master to give her the living water, if the Lord had tried to confront her error, and explained to her, about her lack of understanding.? All these things would not have mattered. I want to emphasize that, you must keep talking about the Lord’s ability to save. The word of God is the tool of the Spirit to save the lost. Human reasoning dies not save.
THOUGHT: KEEP TALKING ABOUT THE GOOD NEWS, FOR THAT RELEASES GOD’S POWER TO SAVE”
Rom 1:16 KJV “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
John 4:15 KJV “The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.”
