Dear Brothers and Sisters,As Jesus asked the Samaritan woman for water, she appeared to have been offended simply because of His Ethnicity, and could have lost her blessing of life. But God in all His mercy was patient with her as He is patient with us. While speaking of heavenly blessings she was stuck in earthly mentality. Let us pray that God imparts wisdom upon us as we hear His voice. Let us embrace living water that offers great peace in every season.
Love and Joy in Christ Jesus,
Apostle Brenda D. Cooper
“The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans. ) Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.” “Sir,” the woman said, “you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his livestock?” Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.””
John 4:9-14 NIV
