“Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.” John 4:23.

Most likely, the majority of us are familiar with the story of Jesus and the woman at the well (John 4). She had one heartbreaking relationship after another in searching for the lover of her heart. She stood before God and claimed a life of loyalty and commitment for five different men only to experience broken dream after broken dream. Even as her eyes met Jesus, there was a man at home preparing to be number six but doomed from the beginning. No doubt, he too would fall short because the object of his affection had a hole in her heart that only God could fill. Jesus explained to her that there would be a day when those whose heart pursued worship with God over every other desire would never have to pursue anything again. When the object of our affection becomes Jesus, the overflow of that relationship will provide the fulfillment of our dreams when aligned with His will.

The Greek word used for worship in this account is proskuneo, derived from pros, "toward" and kuneo, "to kiss”. Jesus was entreating her to lean into Him and share the affection of their connected hearts. Our fellowship with Christ today is no different than when He met the Samaritan woman at the well. God doesn't intend that worship be connected with a place but with the heart attitude. We were created in the image of Love and are hard-wired to be relational and connected with the Body of Christ. We build our own wells and wearily approach them with the same spiritual bucket only to discover the huge hole in the bottom. It is only when we place Christ at the center of our hearts that we are able to fill the empty places and broken dreams.

He alone will fill our hearts and satisfy our desires if we will just meet Him at the well where the Living Waters flow.

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