THE RIVER OF LIFE
"If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water." John 4:10
Jesus met a Samaritan woman at Jacob's well and asked her to give Him a drink and she responded saying, "How is it, that You being a Jew ask for a drink from me?" Jesus responded and told her that if she had asked Him for a drink He would have given her living water.
This is how we witness to the lost, we give our testimony of how God saved us, or we mention something that God has given us, such as living water. Jesus used the water at the well as an example of spiritual water, the Holy Spirit, to open the eyes of this un-believer.
Salvation is a gift from God, given to everyone who asks of the water of everlasting life. Jesus told His disciples that the fields were ripe for harvest after they questioned Him why He was talking to a Samaritan woman. Are you giving out the water of life, telling a lost world that they can have a drink?
"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 4:13,14
