Day Seven
A woman from Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give me a drink.”
(For his disciples had gone away into the city to buy food.) The Samaritan woman
said to him, “How is it that you, a Jew, ask for a drink from me, a woman of
Samaria?” (For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.)  Jesus answered her, “If
you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, ‘Give me a drink,’ you
would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.” The woman said
to him, “Sir, you have nothing to draw water with, and the well is deep. Where do you
get that living water?  Are you greater than our father Jacob? He gave us the well
and drank from it himself, as did his sons and his livestock.”  Jesus said to her,
“Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again,  but whoever drinks of the
water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him
will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”  The woman said to
him, “Sir, give me this water, so that I will not be thirsty or have to come here to draw
water.” John 4:7-15

It had been a long time since anyone had uttered a kind word. Instead of going in the
cool of the morning to draw water from the well, she went at noon just to avoid the
chatter. She just wanted to be alone. Her life began as any other, but had taken a turn
for the worse. Bad choices, poor judgment, and a lack of direction had left her feeling
ashamed of whom she had become. The people in her life – her family and so called
friends – had rejected her. Others mocked her, made fun of her, pointed, and talked
behind her back, but just close enough to make sure she could hear. All she really
wanted was love, acceptance, a little compassion – someone to put their arm around her
and tell her, “I know you’ve made mistakes, but I love you and I care about you in spite
of those things.” She lived her life hoping that someone – anyone – would just love her.
She begins her day like any other. But on this day her trip to the well would impact her
life so she would never be the same again. For it was on this day . . . she met Jesus. She was
just looking for drinking water, but Jesus was ready to give her living water that would
change her life for eternity. Jesus changed her heart by transforming her life. She was
given the living water that would “become a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
She would never be thirsty again. I’m praying for Jesus to meet you at the well this
morning. I’m praying for a spiritual breakthrough at the well of your own choosing.
Jesus can change your heart and transform your life this morning. Jesus is ready to pour
living water into your heart and soul.

Drink from the well that will never run dry. I promise you will never be thirsty again for the things of this world. Drink from the well
of living water.
