The Living Water of Jesus!

A few days ago, it was my privilege to lead a group of FBC teammates on a tour of the Holy Lands. When you walk through the sacred sights of Israel, the Bible comes to life. God’s Word becomes three-dimensional and you can see Holy History in living color.
 
In particular, our group traveled to the current day city of Nablus where our wonderful guide, Foteh Mickel, introduced us to the priest in charge of the church at Sychar. The church stands on top of Jacob’s Well. We entered into this magnificent building guided by a fascinating priest wearing a brown robe with a Duck-Dynasty caliber beard that made him look like a biblical prophet. We descended into the grotto below the altar into a  room containing Jacob’s Well.  John 4 came to life. At this very spot, Jesus encountered a Samaritan woman who desperately needed living water. On this sacred parcel of real estate, the Redeemer of humanity conveyed the good news to a multi-married, morally-blemished social outcast. Jesus overcame the barriers of culture, race, and gender to deliver the most important news on the planet: The water I give will become a spring of water welling up in you to eternal life.” (John 4:14) When the woman at the well suspicioned that Jesus was the promised Messiah, He affirmed, “I who you speak to am He.” (John 4:26)
 
In this simple encounter, Jesus transformed a defeated outcast into a powerful evangelist. The Scripture concludes the account by declaring, “Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in Jesus because of the woman’s testimony.” Furthermore, they declared, “We know that this man really is the Savior of the world.” (John 4:39-42)
 
As we approach the glorious season of Easter, we are surrounded by people who desperately need the Living Water of Jesus Christ. Like Jesus, intentionally connect with the thirsty people around you and look for opportunities to share your testimony about your living relationship to the living Lord. Learn and live God’s living Word, my fellow partaker of Living Water, which will facilitate more people receiving Jesus as the Savior of their world!
