“Jesus had to go through Samaria”
This is a statement about geography. Samaria was between where Jesus was and where He wanted to be.
This is also a statement about someone the Father is seeking.
In a conversation with a woman at a well about the satisfaction of eternal thirst, Jesus reveals why He had to go through Samaria and the kind of drink only He can give.
He also reveals that everyone is thirsty and is slaking their thirst one way or another. But only one drink, living water, will eternally satisfy.
What if you saw your own thirsts this way?
What if you looked at the world around you as filled with thirsty people who are drinking – but from what source and what kind of water?
