Day 4: Beautifully Broken


There she was.

She SHOWED UP

not expecting to

have a conversation with anyone

as she came

at the time of day when no one else would be there.

She SHOWED UP to draw some water

and

there HE was.

HE just started the conversation that

the woman never expected.

“Will you give me a drink?”

The Samaritan woman said to HIM, 'You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman.

How can you ask me for a drink?' (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans).

JESUS answered her, 'If you knew the gift of GOD and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked HIM and HE would have given you living water'”*

What would you do?

JESUS is talking to you.

Would you BELIEVE that it is HIM,

the MESSIAH,

who everyone was EXPECTANTLY waiting to come.

But what if you SHOWED up at the well

and JESUS started talking to you

and then HE told you that HE knew

about your life,

every detail of it,

nothing hidden

because HE knew that

"you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband" *(John 4)

Hmm.

JESUS KNEW.

And JESUS still offered her, a samaritan woman,

HIS LIVING WATER.

The "HER", whose life of sin was like a neon light,

as everyone knew her and her lifestyle

but there

at a well

in the afternoon

JESUS asks for water from "her".

Oh the heart of JESUS~

"there is now no condemnation for those who are in CHRIST JESUS" (Romans 8:1).

Did you catch that?.

NO CONDEMNATION!

JESUS didn't come to CONDEMN~

"For GOD did not send HIS SON into the world to condemn the world,

but to save the world through HIM" (John 3:17)

Oh this is just one of the many conversations

JESUS had with one of "them"~

the rejected

the shamed

the guilty

and the conversations that

HE still has with "them"`~

the rejected

the shamed

the guilty

"For GOD did not send HIS SON into the world to condemn the world,

but to save the world through HIM" (John 3:17).

I was one of "them".

I did not have five husbands and a plus one,

but I have fallen short of perfection

because of my human status.

BUT JESUS

SHOWED UP because I SHOWED UP

and HE breathed life back into my lost soul

that has changed my life forever

because

I PUT HIM IN MY STORY~

"Therefore, there is now no condemnation for _________ who is in CHRIST JESUS".

Oh my friend this blank line is for EVERYONE'S NAME,

especially

the rejected

the shamed

the guilty.

And all JESUS asked was for a glass of water from a samaritan woman

so HE could have a conversation with her

and let her know that

her name belonged on the blank line,

just like yours.

So

take a moment to remember

to who you belong and

PUT HIM IN YOUR STORY~

"Therefore, there is now no condemnation for _________ who is in CHRIST JESUS"

(Romans 8:1)

For we all can relate to the

"WOMAN AT THE WELL" (listen to the song below)
