The woman said to him, "Sir, give me this water so that I won't get thirsty and have to keep coming here to draw water." John 4:15 NIV
Well, at least now the Samaritan woman does believe that this stranger has something to offer which she wants to possess, yet she is still thinking on the earthly level, and does not understand the spiritual level of which the Lord is speaking. This aligns with how Christ’s previous discussion with Nicodemus proceeded.
The gift of the Holy Spirit is truly needed by anyone who wishes to remove themselves from slavery to the enticements of this world. The Spirit will guide the believer in the ways of the Lord. What a wonderful gift for us to be offered. God’s Spirit does dwell within us!
