The Woman at the Well (John 4:1-26)
Jesus is thirsty in Samaria at Jacob's Well. He claims that the water that I give will become a
wellspring spring of water welling up to eternal life = The water that we are given will become a source of life for others. What we are given does not just save us in our need, but it wells up and overflows. An hour is coming in the future when true worshippers will worship God the Father in spirit and in truth. The Samaritan woman says that she knows that the messiah is coming and he will tells us all things. Jesus says, "I who speak to you am he." Jesus is claiming to be Messiah. He is the one the prophets foretold. He is the savior who has come to bring about the culmination of all things. He is who he says he is. The day that he spoke of has not yet come, but it will. Until then, we must prepare ourselves and our neighbors for what will take place. The future is certain and I want to be among those who worship, the true worshippers, in spirit and truth. Lord help us to serve you and your kingdom well until that day.
