TOPIC: Come For A Drink

READ: John 4:1-26 (NKJV)

  1. Therefore, when the Lord knew that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John
  2. (though Jesus Himself did not baptize, but His disciples),
  3. He left Judea and departed again to Galilee.
  4. But He needed to go through Samaria.
  5. So He came to a city of Samaria which is called Sychar, near the plot of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.
  6. Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied from [His] journey, sat thus by the well. It was about the sixth hour.
  7. A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give Me a drink.”
  8. For His disciples had gone away into the city to buy food.
  9. Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, “How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?” For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.
  10. Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.”
  11. The woman said to Him, “Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. Where then do You get that living water?
  12. “Are You greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank from it himself, as well as his sons and his livestock?”
  13. Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again,
  14. “but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”
  15. The woman said to Him, “Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw.”
  16. Jesus said to her, “Go, call your husband, and come here.”
  17. The woman answered and said, “I have no husband.” Jesus said to her, “You have well said, ‘I have no husband,’
  18. “for you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; in that you spoke truly.”
  19. The woman said to Him, “Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet.
  20. “Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you [Jews] say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship.”
  21. Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father.
  22. “You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews.
  23. “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.
  24. “God [is] Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
  25. The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (who is called Christ). “When He comes, He will tell us all things.”
  26. Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am [He.”]


On His way to Galilee through Samaria, Jesus sat by the well of Jacob while His disciples went to buy lunch. A Samaritan woman came to draw water from the well and an encounter ensued between her and Jesus. Jesus skillfully showed her that she needed the living water, which only He can give. This living water refers to the new birth (salvation), which the Holy Spirit imparts. He invited her to ask Him for the living water that will forever quench her spiritual thirst. And the woman wasted no time in requesting for it (verse 15).

Jesus seeks thirsty sinners to give them the living water which satisfies the thirsty soul for time and eternity. No sinner is excluded from the offer of this water. Jesus didn’t exclude the Samaritan woman from it and He doesn’t exclude you either! To receive this gift of living water, you must recognise that you are thirsty and that you can never satisfy that thirst by yourself. Then come to Jesus for a drink. His drink does not only satisfy thirst but it becomes a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life. If you continually drink from the world’s sources, you will thirst again. So, why not come to Him for a drink

PRAYER: Lord Jesus, give me this water of life that I may not be thirsty again. Amen.
