Devotions for Dancers: The Woman at the Well

December 15, 2017

The woman at the well is a woman I can relate to.

 

It was high noon on a HOT day. Jesus was tired from traveling and sat down to rest, while His disciples went into town to get food. When our unnamed woman appeared with clay jar in hand, Jesus made a simple request: "Will you give me a drink?" (John 4:7).

 

 

Uh-oh. (1) Jews weren't supposed to speak to Samaritans. (2) Men weren't permitted to address women without their husbands present. And (3) rabbis had no business speaking to shady ladies such as this one. Jesus was willing to toss out the rules, but our woman at the well wasn't. "You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman," she reminded him. "How can you ask me for a drink?" (John 4:9).

 

Oh, this is exactly how I felt……….

 

Jesus is speaking to me? .

 

You see the Samaritan woman was living with a man, who was not her husband, and was getting water from the well in the heat of the day….to avoid all the other women of the town.

 

She was the outcast.

 

But Jesus wanted to speak with her…..

 

He had something to say……

..

It took me a long time to understand and realize, that it did not matter what I was doing, where I was going or how I was doing it…..

 

Jesus wanted to speak with me. He loved me, right where I was.

“Come as you are! “

And He had something very important to tell me.

 

Jesus didn’t want to bash the woman at the well, over the head with the truth. 
He wanted to point her to the truth and offer her the solution.

 

We serve a very loving, understanding and compassionate God that is patiently waiting at the well……… for us.

 

Precious ones………… Jesus is waiting at the well. It does not matter: who, what, where, how, when, why.

 

He is just waiting……… to love on you!!!!
