How Not To Have A Miserable Life?

by: Pastor Isaias T. Songcuan Jr.

Our message for today is Found in the Book of John Chapter 4:1-25. This is about a Samaritan woman who met Jesus Christ on Jacob’s Well. During those times the Jews and the Samaritans were not friends. She had no idea who Jesus was but that moment when she reached the well to draw water would prove the Greatest moment of her life.

This woman is going to fetch water around noon. The hottest time of the day. Those days the Women gathered at the town’s well to collect water in the morning and during sunset hours. For it’s not hot during those times of the day. At the time the woman was about to fetch from the well. Jesus asked for water to drink. To her surprised Jesus offered her “the Living Water” (John 4:10). The Samaritan woman wonders how Jesus can provide this Living water? Since He has no means to draw water from the well. In verse 11, she asked Jesus where to get this Living Water? She finds the phrase “Living Water” to be fascinating, and she’s becoming interested in where to get it. Usually, this behavior is common most especially to those who don’t know Jesus yet. Her attention had always been on Jacob, as was the significance of all Samaritans. Jesus will have to draw her away from that impressiveness without defaming Jacob. In Verses 13-14, “Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life (NKJV).” The bottom line, the things of this world can never satisfy the human heart and life. Discounting as to how much is acquired or obtained of this world.

“Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”

(John 4:13-14NKJV)

The woman misunderstood Jesus. She was thinking that if she could get this water, she would not have to spend anymore time struggling to get water daily from the well. At this point, she’s thinking about some kind of magical water that would meet her Physical needs. In verse 15, it demonstrates that she now has some understanding. She knows now that the water of which Jesus speaking cannot be drawn or cannot be taken from Jacob’s well. In verse 16, Jesus could see the pain in her heart. He could see the Dried places of her soul. She unsuccessfully tried to be Perfect. Jesus could see her trying to fill her “heart bucket” or “heart’s desire” with men, love, and approval. Jesus searches and seeks into the details of her life. She bolted and jumped with some interesting talk of worship.

In verse 18, Jesus mentioned that she had five husbands, and the man she was now living with was not her husband. In short, not one of these five men is her husband. We may conclude that she‘s avoiding the townspeople for she gathers water at the most miserable time of the day. She’s not going to get her water early in the morning and late afternoon because everybody will be on that well, and gossip about her. Jesus pointed out the area of sin and shame in this woman’s life. The water that Jesus speaks is not to quench and satisfy a physical thirst, but a spiritual thirstiness. This Thirst that was manifested in this woman’s life was through a series and chain of broken and sinful relationships.

This sinful Woman was unwanted and ignored. The Samaritan woman was marked as immoral who was unmarried and living openly with a series of men. The Story of the woman of the well teaches us that God loves us in spite of our empty lives. God values us. As a result of Jesus Conversation with her, she immediately dropped her water jug to gather the townspeople (Verse 28) telling them about Jesus. The woman became the evangelist of Jesus Words to her townsman. For the Samaritan Woman agreed to Jesus Words. Sometimes we challenge the Lord’s Holy Word. Sometimes we even disagree and disregard it. When we reject His word, we reject the truth. Sometimes we let a spiritual truth sit out in front of us and don’t take it into our hearts. This woman took Jesus Words and drank the living water by accepting Jesus Christ in her life. The scripture sits at our fingertips, and we are challenged daily to take it up and drink it in.

I hope and I pray that the Lord would meet you at your well today. To God Be the Glory!!!

On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”

John 7:37-38
