Hey there, world changer!
As you are today, at this very moment, are you fulfilled? Because it is God’s will for you to experience life and have it to the full (John 10:10). It’s the very reason that Jesus came to earth, died on the cross and rose again. It was and is his sole desire to give you life — yes, you personally.
I was reading a well-known Bible story out of John 4 recently. It’s the story of Jesus talking to a Samaritan woman. Jesus was traveling from Judea, passed through Galilee and landed in Samaria. He stopped by a well, Jacob’s well to be exact, and a Samarian woman came by to get some water. At the well, Jesus and the woman had a very interesting conversation. Jesus spoke to her about thirst (John 4:10-17):
^10 Jesus said, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”
^11 “Sir,” the woman said, “you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? ^12 Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his livestock?”
^13 Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, ^14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
^15 The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water so that I won’t get thirsty and have to keep coming here to draw water.”
^16 He told her, “Go, call your husband and come back.”
^17 “I have no husband,” she replied. Jesus said to her, “You are right when you say you have no husband. ^18 The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have just said is quite true.”
What Jesus was pointing out was that the woman was thirsty. I want to highlight that in and of itself, thirst is not a bad thing, it is what we fill ourselves with that makes the world of difference. Jesus pointed out that she was filling herself with what the world had to offer, in this case, she went from man to man looking to fill her, rather than filling herself with what only Jesus could offer.
Jesus shared that there was living water that could quench her thirst, her spiritual thirst. This water wouldn’t leave her empty over and over again, rather, it would satisfy her deepest longing, her longing for him.
You see, when Jesus fills us spiritually, the rest of our lives fall into place. The things of this world we often fill our lives with aren’t always bad things, but when they are not in the proper order, they are no longer good for us.
My question to you is what are you filling your life with? The truth is, if it isn’t Jesus, the living water, it will not satisfy. The truth is we are all desperate for the Jesus who stands at the well offering the exact and only thing we need. It is him and only him that will fulfill us and quench our thirst.
