Empty And Betrayed

She was empty, betrayed and thirsty. Usually three strikes and youíre out. She had five.

Jesus met her in a region respectable people avoided. But then again, he wasnít into traditions. Tired from walking, he stops at a well for rest and a drink of water. She comes at noon, probably because of her reputation. Itís not the normal time for drawing water, but itís a good time if you want to avoid the gossiping, whispering, proper ladies.

Disregarding protocol, Jesus speaks to her and asks for a drink. The woman is just as surprised as the disciples are to see him doing it when they return. Sheís also horrified that he knows her reputation. But it didnít matter. He was concerned about her future, not her past.

When Jesus informed the woman he had water to perpetually quench her thirst, she was puzzled. ďSir,Ē the woman said, ďyou have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? (John 4:11) Turns out this thirst quenching water didnít come from a well after all but in a relationship.

Nothing has changed. Life has a way of leaving us feeling empty and betrayed. By friends, spouses, children, employers, circumstances. So we try the water of another spouse, more friends, a different job, another bank. The list is endless and weíre left disappointed.

Lifeís circumstances canít always be changed but where we look for fulfillment can. Ultimately itís not substances, relationships, or things. Itís by saying the same thing the woman did: Sir, give me this water so that I wonít get thirsty and have to keep coming here. Conquer negative feelings and actions by inviting Jesus into your circumstances.

Prayer: Father in heaven, remind us only You can fill our lifeís voids. www.lovelinesfromgod.com

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
