Those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life. John 4:14
Jesus is once again changing the way of life as the people knew it. I love v9 when Jesus is engaging with a Samaritan! This was countercultural stuff! Then He ask’s her for a drink of water. We may have lost our understanding of this, but this was huge! A Jew would NEVER ask a Samaritan for a drink of water after this Jesus so beautifully tells her that the water He has to offer is one that will never make you thirsty again. I am constantly struck but how beautiful the message of Jesus really is, soon the place of worship will no longer matter however the heart behind the act of worship and who is being worshipped is what matters.
How is what I am doing in my life being countercultural? Not to run amuck, but to go above and beyond what is normal in the hope that people would get to know Christ? How missional is my heart really?
Lord, I pray you stir in me a passion to seek out those who don’t yet know you, Lord I pray that however small these opportunities are that I embrace them, that I don’t look at how others are responding towards my actions but I am responding to your spirit and guidance.
