The Timeless Gift

“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.” (Jn. 4:10)

There is something wonderful and compelling in this invitation by Jesus. His encounter with a Samaritan woman at Jacob’s Well carries with it one profound timeless truth – the gift of God is “living water”. Still today, “Living Water” is the most timeless gift of God!

Thirsty People:

I have found myself imagining this story, as so many searching and thirsty people; drink from one broken cistern to another, only to find the wells have all gone dry and ignorance is not bliss. It never occurred to her that lifestyle choices were leaving her dry… this woman’s ignorance of truth left her in bondage and prevented her from finding her way. She was more aware of her religious tradition than her moral conduct… in other words – she was lost!

Her story is being repeated a billion times over in our world today. Tragic and unnecessary… thirsty people remain at broken cisterns. Yet the ultimate challenge for the Church, is to offer a Kingdom Culture that is deep and lasting… like a well of living water. We are called to be a life giving stream from the well of living water.

Called to be… “A life giving stream from the well of living water.”

Let’s understand that meeting at Jacob’s Well is no guarantee that you and I can deliver the same message that Jesus gave her. We can talk a good talk and even shout and dance with the best of intentions, but to deliver and impart to others requires an anointing from the Holy Spirit. We need a touch from God… our own timeless gift. We cannot give what we are not experiencing!

Let the Rivers Flow:

There is Good News, however – if we are drinking of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 12:12-13) and overflowing with the life that Jesus promised, then out of our bellies will flow rivers of living water (Jn. 7:37-39). We must drink deeply from the well to produce the kind of joy the world needs to see!

So jump in and go deep… let the river flow!
