A Humble Request

There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.
John 4:7

We are all as that Samaritan woman at the well. We discover that we have an eternal thirst that needs to be quenched. We attempt to fill this spiritual need with physical things...relationships, jobs, statuses, things. For a season, they provide a feeling of satisfaction, but soon we learn that it's fleeting ultimately leaving us with an even greater thirst than before.

Just as she, we find Jesus has come to where we are and patiently waits for our response to serve Him. As is human nature, our response can be riddled with doubt, disbelief, sarcasm, and pridefulness. Once the woman was humbled, putting her pride aside, her mind was open to the hope that Jesus' presence/existence offered and her heart was able to give way to faith. He challenged everything she had been raised to believe. Man's traditions and religions versus eternal truths.

Sin is not man's greatest failure rather it is his response to our Lord and Savior's humble request. Do you serve Him in bitterness as on the cross or do you serve Him in gladness at the mouth of the empty tomb?

They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
Matthew 27:34
