All Who Thirst, Come

John 4: 4-10
Jesus was recognized as the Kink of kings on the 10th day of the month of Passover.
Jesus went through Samaria and visited a town where there was Jacob’s well, and Jesus asked a Samaritan woman for a drink. She scoffed at the questions wondering how that he would ask her for a drink.
The Samaritans were despised for intermarrying with gentiles, and for refusing to recognize the temple in Jerusalem.
Jesus was thirsty at the well, but told her if she knew who she was talking to she would ask for living water.

What are you thirsting for in this dry and weary land?

If you are praying to God and you start with the phrase, “You have nothing…” recognize that the rest of that sentence will be wrong.

There are many things in this world that promise to meet your needs. Most will leave you just as thirsty. Fix your eyes on Jesus.
His well is filled with:
Hope. Peace, Wisdom, love, power, acceptance, strength, provision, direction, salvation, eternal life, courage, comfort, reward, joy, truth, miracles, freedom, satisfaction. The world can not bring these gifts for the long haul.

When Jesus was crucified, he poured out his blood and water, so that our thirst could be satisfied. As many as received him, he gave the rights to be called sons and daughters.

Rev. 7: 16-17
John saw into heaven and saw: never again will they hunger or thirst and the lamb will be their shepherd.
16Never again will they hunger,
and never will they thirst;
nor will the sun beat upon them,
nor any scorching heat.a
17For the Lamb in the center of the throne
will be their shepherd.b
He will lead them to fountains of living water,c
and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’d”

John 4:
4Now He had to pass through Samaria. 5So He came to a town of Samaria called Sychar, near the plot of ground Jacob had given to his son Joseph. 6Since Jacob’s well was there, Jesus, weary from His journey, sat down by the well. It was about the sixth hour.
7When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Give Me a drink.” 8(His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.)
9“You are a Jew,” said the woman. “How can You ask for a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.)
10Jesus answered, “If you knew the gift of God and who is asking you for a drink, you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.”
11“Sir,” the woman replied, “You have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where then will You get this living water? 12Are You greater than our father Jacob, who gave us this well and drank from it himself, as did his sons and his livestock?”
13Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again. 14But whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a fount of water springing up to eternal life.”
15The woman said to Him, “Sir, give me this water so that I will not get thirsty and have to keep coming here to draw water.”
16Jesus told her, “Go, call your husband and come back.”
17“I have no husband,” the woman replied.
Jesus said to her, “You are correct to say that you have no husband. 18In fact, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. You have spoken truthfully.”
19“Sir,” the woman said, “I see that You are a prophet. 20Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews say that the place where one must worship is in Jerusalem.”
21“Believe Me, woman,” Jesus replied, “a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 22You worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23But a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for the Father is seeking such as these to worship Him. 24God is Spirit, and His worshipers must worship Him in spirit and in truth.”
25The woman said, “I know that Messiah (called Christ) is coming. When He comes, He will explain everything to us.”
26Jesus answered, “I who speak to you am He.”
27Just then, His disciples returned and were astonished that He was speaking with a woman. But no one asked Him, “What do You want from her?” or “Why are You talking with her?”
28Then the woman left her water jar, went back into the town, and said to the people, 29“Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Christ?” 30So they left the town and made their way toward Jesus.
31Meanwhile, the disciples urged Him, “Rabbi, eat something.”
32But He told them, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.”
