You may be familiar with the old adage you can give someone a fish to feed him for a day or teach him to fish so he can feed himself for a lifetime. This applies to our spiritual lives as well. The fourth chapter of John says that Jesus told the Samaritan woman she could have a well of living water inside her never to thirst again. Have you ever been really thirsty, where you couldn’t seem to get enough to drink? Has your spirit ever been that thirsty; where you couldn’t wait to get that next morsel of spiritual teaching, gobbling it up in no time at all?
What did Jesus show the Samaritan woman about going from a point of thirst to where she could become a well of living water? Jeremiah 2:13 tells us, we as God’s people turn away from an offer of His fountain of living water; instead digging our own cisterns. Cisterns cracked and unable to hold water. God’s people thirst, but look to the world, or the underworld, as a source of nourishment where none is found; therefore we continue to thirst. Jesus tells her she’s had many husbands and is currently living with a man to whom she is not wed. In other words, her house is out of order and therefore she's looking for fulfillment outside of God’s commands.
To become a well of living water one must not only receive Jesus into the heart, but let Him change it into a vessel that’s not cracked and can hold His living water where others might come and be filled. Jesus says in John 7:38 “whoever believes in the Son of God will have rivers of living water flowing from them. For the true worshipers of God will worship Him in spirit and in truth, forsaking worldly desires that they may be fountains of life to those who are still dead to the knowledge of Christ Jesus.”
