When Jesus stopped to get a drink of water, he met someone who was trying to run from her problems. And then he gave her the solution.
In today’s lesson, we’re going to talk about a conversation Jesus had with a woman. Jesus had been traveling around teaching the people that he came to save the world from sin. One day, he was tired and thirsty and stopped by a well to get some water. A well was like a big drinking fountain. While he was there, he saw a woman all alone. In that day, women didn’t go places alone. They would always be with friends. Jesus already knew her story, though. She had made some bad mistakes in her life and people didn’t like her for those things. But, Jesus had a plan for her. First, he just talked to her to show her that she had value. Second, he explained who he was and what he came to do. Jesus came to forgive the sins of everyone, including hers. In fact, he compared his love and forgiveness to a refreshing glass of water that when you drink it, you’ll never be thirsty again. He called it living water. That woman’s life changed that day. She went from being lonely and ashamed for all of her mistakes to having a hopeful future because of Jesus’ forgiveness. This is true for us, too. Jesus wants a relationship with us and he’ll forgive our mistakes, too.
