The Samaritan Woman Part 1

John 4:5-20
Eventually he came to a Samaritan village of Sychar, near the parcel of ground that Jacob gave his son Joseph. Jacobs well was there; and Jesus tired from the long walk, sat wearily beside the well around noontime. Soon a Samaritan woman came to draw water and Jesus said to her, Please give me a drink…

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 Bible is full of these analogies. As you read on in the story, you find that the woman has been married five times and then divorced. At the time Jesus met the Samaritan woman, she was living with a man that was not her husband.

What was this woman looking for that she did not find in five men? What Jesus was telling this woman is that she is hungering and thirsting for something that she will never find in another human being. Gods love.

In application to daily life. This means finding purpose for yourself and knowing what you stand for before you will ever be able to find fulfillment in a relationship with someone else. If you go searching form one person to the another to fill the void in your heart, you will be search forever and you will be disappointed everytime.

Take a minuet and ask yourself the following questions. What do I stand for in this life? When my friends, family and co-worker think of me, what words come to their mind? When was the last time I thought of my faith, beliefs and values?

My friend, take a minute and answer those questions, because I guarantee you will never find joy if you are not consciously aware of who you are.
