WHAT WE’RE ALL ABOUT
THIRST. We’ve all felt it, but Jesus addressed a specific kind of thirst when he spoke with a woman at a well, as recorded in John 4. This Samaritan woman was kind of like so many of us today. De-churched or un-churched, we feel that something got lost in translation from God’s love to our lives, until one day we think, “Something’s missing.” Jesus spoke to her about her life’s journey and about her thirst. He said, “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 water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” This is amazing. Jesus spoke to an un-churched, spiritually curious woman about God, and He didn’t judge her, dismiss her, or preach at her. She mattered. They talked. He cared and He listened. He spoke without all kinds of religious jargon, using words that made sense to her. And it changed her life.
