At the well……..

At the Well~ Reread Sam’s story in John 4, asking Jesus to meet your there and show you things in your heart that need His repair. Is there part of Renee’s story or Sam’s story that you can relate to most? (Ch. 2, Discussion #6)

 

 The water from Jacob’s well would satisfy only bodily thirst for a time. If this is the case why do I continually seek Jacob’s kind of water. This water from the well required hard work. Satisfying ourselves in this world is hard work. It is impossible. We will always turn up void. The water Jesus offers is FREE!  The water Jesus gives is living water. It is a spring of life-giving water. LIFE-GIVING, YA’LL! The Son of God! Jesus Christ the Messiah! Our Savior is freely offering to give us WHAT WE CAN NEVER EARN. Please think about this for a minute. If you don’t “get it” then get on your knees right now and ask God to help you even grasp an ounce of this.

 

Renee says on page 36, “Jesus met Sam in one of the loneliest parts of her day. In the same way, He is there waiting for us in the midst of our imperfect lives, when our pain and failures confirm our self doubts. He is there waiting for us….”

 

It is so easy for us to confuse the material with the spiritual because everything we encounter is about the material. We have to be intentional and armed with the Word of God. Just like Sam was confused we are too. Nothing here and I mean ABSOLUTELY NOTHING (no man or child) can completely satisfy us. Right now, people in hell are SCREAMING FROM THE PIT….”I thirst.” Sisters, we don’t have to thirst. We don’t! We have this #perfectlove that Christ gives us. All we need is Jesus Christ. He is THE VERY BREATH OF GOD, THE LIGHT OF LIFE, AND THE BREAD OF LIFE.

 

I have highs and lows. There are days where I am so in love with Christ that I can barely contain my excitement. Then, I have days where the enemy devours in and feeds me doubts and lies! Only when we know WHAT God has done for us (all as a free gift) will we be able to face our pasts and our sins and seek our Savior. Jesus is right here with His Holy Hand reached out to us…to the Samaritan woman who has a past.

 

AT HIS FEET,

Kristy

  1. Love this KristyThe graphic is beautiful too. I think we all have those days that Satan robs us. I just try to hold on now because I know it’s him and learning how to deal with him. Love you sister. Debbie W. (OBS Facebook Group Leader)

  2. I love this, Kristy! I was having one of those “eh” moments yesterday but then I started picturing that envelope demonstration we did with the last study and really tried to wrap my mind around the fact that God was and is ALL AROUND ME and that I NEVER have and NEVER will walk alone. WOW WOW WOW!!

  3. Kristy, I love this post! It is wonderful, and I love how you related His Perfect Love to us and that it is free, that He is Loving us no matter what is happening in our lives, along with the Fact that we will never Walk Alone Again. Simply lovely!

  4. Amazing insight and honesty Kristy…love it! I am the same…so often find myself drinking from Jacob’s well, instead of from the well of living water, and wonder why I feel so drained. I just want to turn away from that well and only thirst for the living water of Christ.

  5. Sweetpea Sunshine – how I love your love for our God! This line right here, “It is so easy for us to confuse the material with the spiritual because everything we encounter is about the material.” OH YES TO THIS! ❤

  6. Kristy, I love this. Thank you for the reminder that what Jesus offers us is FREE. There is nothing we need to do to gain that #perfectlove except ask. I am so glad that I will never walk alone because I have accepted His perfect love.

  7. Kristy, I love your blog. I have felt these same feelings on different days. It is so hard to fight doubt when we follow our feelings…Satan always wiggles in on our feelings…..when need to keep our focus on that free gift and go to the well every time we are thirsty…..
