Leaving Her Water Jar......

Oh to me this is so good and I had to share with you : )

Yesterday I was reading in John 4 about the woman at the well and a verse popped out at me. We all have read/heard this story over and over again and when I read the part that says, "leaving her water jar, the woman went back to town....." I thought nothing of it and then God showed me something : ) I think I always thought she was so excited about just being with Jesus and wanting to tell people about Him she forgot it but I believe that was not it at all. Even in the Message Bible it says, "In her confusion she left the water pot." But again I think that was not what happened. I think she heard what He was saying in verse 13 when He said, "Everyone who drinks this water ( I think He probably was pointing at her water jar as He said that) will be thirsty again,(14) but those who drink the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life." Isn't Jesus AWESOME : ) Then in verse 25 the woman said, I know that Messiah" (called Christ) is coming..." and then Jesus declared," I, the one speaking to you- I am he." And here's the good part.....She believed Him!!! I think she believed Him to the point where she realized He was/ IS the Living Everlasting Water. She didn't need " her" source of water anymore because she recieved the True Living Water. I believe she chose to leave her water jar not because she was excited or confused but because she was thristy no more!!!! because of JESUS!!!!

Lets daily choose to sat down our water jars and drink up His!
