The (Will) of God from the (Well) of God!

Wells are talked about a lot in the Bible and wells provided drinking water for a lot of people. Even today, wells provide drinking water for a lot of people in rural areas where city water doesn't exist. A water supply is essential for our existence, we can't live long without it. Wells in Biblical times were of great value and still are today, so when the Bible speaks of a well, it is something we can all relate to. Just as water wells are essential for our physical lives, so the well that Jesus speaks of in John 4:6-14 is: essential for our spiritual life.

John 4:6-14 “ 6 Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well; it was about the sixth hour. 7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water; Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink. 8 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.) 9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? For the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans. 10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. 11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep; from whence then hast thou that living water? 12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? 13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: 14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.”

Jesus here at the well confronts her about her sin and He explains that even though He knows her sins, He still seeks after her and those like her. He seeks us all today when we stumble in this world of sin. We must continue daily to seek the well of water springing up into everlasting life. God has provided us a well of salvation.

Isaiah 12:1-3 tells us, “1And in that day you will say, 'O Lord I will praise You: though You were angry with me, Your anger is turned away, and You comfort me. 2 Behold, God is my salvation. I will trust and not be afraid; for the Lord JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also become my salvation. 3 Therefore with joy shall ye draw out of the wells of salvation.'”

I pray that we all may meet at the well that is springing up into everlasting life before this life is over.

If you thirst for Jesus today, please contact me and we will seek out the well of salvation together.
