The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming (He who is called Christ); when that One comes, He will declare all things to us. (John 4:25 NASB)
Well now she has said a mouth full!
When the anointed one comes He will declare all things to us.
Jesus is the Word made flesh
Jesus is the express image of God
God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in His Son. (Hebrews 1:1-2 NASB)
So here is this woman, who does not know the first thing about worship, talking to the King of Kings and Lord or Lords, the very Word that God spoke to spin the universe into the nothing.
Do you get how completely crazy it is that someone like this broken woman should have an audience with the First born of all Creation, the One who has all above all and in all, in whom all the fullness of the God head dwells bodily?
Jesus is nothing like the gods of this world who spin us to their whim and fancy, bending us unnaturally to do their bidding, then letting us crash and burn, all the while laughing at our plight.
Not Jesus. He actually takes time away from the 12 who left everything to follow Him, and spends time interacting with a broken woman.
I love this man!
Do you hear today that no matter how you have screwed up your life to date, Jesus is ready to meet you at the well where you are trying to draw life, and lead you to living water?
And what will He declare over your life?
Much as He said to this woman – it might go like this.
I know who you are, I know what you’ve done, yet I have living water for you to drink that will satisfy the longings I placed in your inner most being, when I spoke your name in your mother’s ear.
Come to Jesus and drink deeply today.
See you tomorrow.
