Intro: Today's text shows us a woman who has grown weary of life. She is exhausted from riding the merry-go-round of life for an interminable amount of time. She has tried to drink from every nearby well, but she always leaves them just as thirsty as when she arrived.

      At some point, Jesus Christ appeared external her little town. When she meets Him, He shows her that a new life is out there. a life without the burdens and difficulties of the life she is currently leading. Jesus takes this fatigued, solidified lady and He drives her to a position of trust. He drives her to take a beverage of living water from the well of confidence. She discovers that the Lord has more than just water in his well when she consumes his water.

      Today, as I contemplated this text, it brought to mind where I was when the Lord found me. I was seeking something I lacked, just like the woman in these verses. I was drinking from each well I could find, however none were fulfilling the thirst in my spirit. I learned that Jesus Christ had more than just water in His well when He gave me a drink from it when I first met Him. Notice with me that bits of insight the actual current to us in this text. Let the Lord show you how good He has been to you by redeeming your soul if you are saved. When He invites you to come to Him and drink from His well, if you are lost, answer. Pay attention to the facts in this chapter that serve as a reminder that His Well Holds More Than Water.


 I. A TRAGIC SINNER A. v. 6: The Tragic Story of Her Isolation: This woman sought water from Jacob's Well. However, she did not arrive when the other women did. Before the sun rose high into the sky, the women came early in the morning to get their water. While it was still cool, they arrived. History lets us know that it was about a mile from town to the well where they came for water. It was hot and sweaty work to draw and carry water for the day. They enjoyed some alone time away from the pressures of living in a society dominated by men and caught up on local gossip while they were there.

      Why didn't this one woman join the others when they arrived? I believe that verses 17 to 18 and verse 28 contain the answer. She is a woman with a lot of experience, as we can see in verse 17. It's possible that she had dated men who belonged to other women. As they drew water from the well, she might have been frequently the subject of their gossip. She doesn't go to the other women in the town when she meets Jesus and wants to tell the people of the city that the Messiah has come. Verse 28: She runs to the men. It would appear that this woman was a social outcast.

      Throughout her discussion with Jesus, He tells her that she is even disconnected from God, v. 20-22. She was spiritually useless even with the small amount of worship she managed to incorporate into her sinful lifestyle. She was also a spiritual outcast.


(Note: She is an image of each and every individual who isn't in an individual relationship with the Ruler Jesus Christ. Why? The Book of scriptures says that our corrupt condition isolates us from God, Isa. 59:2. What an awful situation to be in! A terrible way to live is to be unable to worship, pray, or interact with God. However, many are in that condition today. Despite their prayers, God does not hear them, 66:18. They go to church to worship, but because they are lost in sin, they are unable to worship in spirit and truth. Their entire religious practice is merely physical exercise. It neither reaches Heaven nor reaches the Lord. They are far from God, His blessings, and His salvation, and they are lost.


B. v. 7-26 The Awfulness Of Her Obliviousness - In these sections, this unfortunate lady attempts to contend religion with Jesus. From the get go, she considers Him to be simply one more Jew, and she believes Him should realize that she has a few thoughts regarding religion as well. She discusses their strict contrasts, v. 9. V. 11-12, 15: She uses sarcasm and ridicule. In order to avoid Jesus' piercing statements in verses 16-18, she tries to bring up a religious argument in verses 19-20. Through all of this, Jesus shows her exactly the way in which little she is familiar with God, about love and about herself.

            Notice the little word "if" in stanza 10. Despite what she assumed she knew, Jesus brings up to her that there is one thing she doesn't have the foggiest idea. The most important thing is that she does not know who Jesus is! She is informed by Jesus that, "if only she knew," she could request "living water" from him and be content for all time! This woman might have died if she had been left to herself and believed that she was spiritually fine. It's a credit to God that Jesus was able to reach into her darkness and dispel her skepticism about Him and the way to salvation!


      (Note: "What you don't know won't hurt you" has been said. "What you don't know could send you to hell!" I say. Extremely many individuals are living in obliviousness with regards to how to get to God. In our text, many people are like this woman. They are insufficiently knowledgeable about Christianity and the church to pose a threat to themselves. There are numerous things about the Book of scriptures and about philosophy that you might very well won't ever learn. Not realizing them won't keep you out of Paradise, nor won't realizing them send you to Damnation. However, if you miss the most important thing, you will never experience Heaven and will instead reside in Hell. What is the primary thing? This is it: You can be saved if you trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. Acts 16:31! The main thing is that. It won't last long!)


      (Note: Because they missed Jesus, many will die and go to Hell from Baptist church pews! They figured out how to go to chapel and to Sunday School. Tithing was taught to them. They discovered which kind of Bible to purchase. They figured out how to make a fresh start and how to carry on with a clean live. They learned a lot, but they never understood that faith in the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation. They were never taught that faith alone is sufficient for salvation (Eph. 2:8-9.)


C. v. 11-26 The Weariness of Her Inconsistencies – despite the fact that she is a woman with a troubled past and is leading a wicked life (v. 16-18), she believes she is qualified to debate religion with the Lord Jesus Christ. She exemplifies hypocrisy in action in a clear way!


      (Note: This kind of thing is constantly attempted! Everyone believes that they are qualified to debate God. They say things like, "Well, I think this or that," "I believe this way or that way," or "I know what the Bible says, but..." Who do you suppose to be? Did you know that your opinion is irrelevant? Did you know that God has no real concern for how you feel? Have you ever considered the fact that God's Word cannot be disputed?

            Here is the reality: God said it and it is settled perpetually, Psa. 119:89. John 14:6 already informs us that Jesus is the only way to Heaven; Acts 4:12; Acts 16:31. He has previously let us know that works won't get anybody in, Eph. 2:8-9; Titus 3:5. He has laid out His salvation plan in detail. You will follow God's instructions if you want to live a moral life and attain eternal life after death. You can proceed in your own way if you want to remain lost and spend eternity in Hell. That may come across as narrow to you, and it is meant to! God didn't leave this thing open to discuss, yet He plainly, briefly and solidly expressed how things are and it is settled! Contend maybe, yet it will do no decent! Also, who are we to contend with Him, Rom. 9:20.)


 II. A TENDER SAVIOR A. v. 4 states that "He must need to go through Samaria." He is tender in his grace. To avoid coming into contact with the Jews, the majority of them went to great lengths to circumvent Samaria. The Samaritans infuriated the Jews! Because they were descended from Jews who had mated with Gentiles who had been brought to the land by the Assyrians, they were thought to be of a lower race.

            Say thanks to God that Jesus doesn't work like different men! He couldn't have cared less about their legacy. The hatred of others did not bother him. He did not care about the ignorant men's racial boundaries. He works in the grace realm! Jesus went to that put and sat on that well since He needed to save this unfortunate lady! Indeed, even His followers were stunned by what Jesus had done, v. 27. This woman and her town would have been overlooked by Jesus if He had acted like any other Jew. Nevertheless, He showed mercy to them and saved Sychar!


      (Note: Take a look at it! In the event that you and I got what we merited, we couldn't ever have gotten another glance from God. Be that as it may, I acclaim God for a Sunday morning when Jesus said, "I should needs go through Morganton!" He doesn't check out at us based on our pathetic, evil condition. He looks at us with kindness and grace! Because our sin separates us from Him, He is not blind to it; however, His grace bridges the gap and brings Him near to offer salvation to you and me.

            You and I must die for our sins because of God's justice, Rom. 6:23. However, mercy responded when justice demanded that it be satisfied, and God sent Jesus to die for us on the cross, Rom. 5:6-8. Presently, in effortlessness, He offers salvation to all who will come and be saved, Fire up. 22:17. Listen, grace is everything in salvation! There's really no need to focus on what you can give or what you can do. It is about what Jesus did when He passed on for you. It involves you giving up and realizing that you are powerless to save yourself. It is about you confiding in Him and His elegance alone to save your spirit.)


      (Note: You will never be necessary to reach Heaven! It is entirely dependent on His grace!)


B. v. 7-26 He Is Delicate In His Thoughtfulness - Jesus works with this lady quietly. He gently led her to the location she required to be after finding her and taking her there. She was prepared to hear about Him and who He was when he brought her there. Then, at that point, when He uncovered Himself to her, v. 26, she was where she was prepared to trust on Him.


      (Note: The Lord always works with people in this way. He gently guides us to a place of faith in Him by taking us wherever He finds us. He is always a gentlemanly figure! He remains at the entryway of man's heart and He thumps, (Sick. "Thumps" is in the current state, dynamic voice. " He just keeps coming in! According to Rev. 3:20, He patiently waits until that door opens and He can enter. Ill. The majority of saved people can look back on our lives and see God's patient hand leading us to faith! Acclaim His Name!)


      (Note: When we pray for loved ones who have passed away, we should not let this discourage us. You might not be able to see what God is doing in their lives because He might be leading them along. Keep praying and being patient. If the Lord has burdened you with a desire to save them, that alone is evidence that He intends to do so in His own time!)


C. v. 10-14 He Is Tender In His Gift: This woman was promised by Jesus that He would provide her with "living water." He assured her that this water would satiate her deepest desires. I would envision that this likely spoke to her. To satisfy her soul's deep longings, she had tried a variety of physical relationships, all of which left her empty and thirsty. She had been unsatisfied by sex. Marriage had bombed multiple times to fulfill her. She was unhappy because she was living on the margins of society in the depths of sin. Here, Jesus offers her a chance to find all that she has been searching for, by simply accepting His deal.


      (Note: It is important to note the words "drinketh" in verses 13 and 14 today. The word "drinketh" is written in the "present tense, active voice" in verse 13. "Even if you keep on drinking the water from this well, you will get thirsty again," Jesus says in verse 13. Notwithstanding, "drinketh" in section 14 is in the "aorist tense, dynamic voice". Jesus is promising that one visit to Him will satisfy the soul forever in verse 14, which reads, "But whosoever takes just one drink of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst..." You might have attempted everything, and assuming you have I want to securely say that it has left you feeling unfilled and unfulfilled. But if you come to Jesus and accept Him into your life, He will save you and satisfy your deepest desires forever! Could you rather continue to drink from a well that can never fulfill, or could you rather take one beverage from a wellspring that never neglects to give great and outright fulfillment?)


      (Note: What is Jesus giving away? He is providing your soul with contentment and salvation. He is offering you the chance to have every one of your transgressions pardoned. He is offering you the chance to be right with God. He is offering you the chance to miss Damnation and go to Paradise when you bite the dust. Is there a catch? There is no stipulation! Everything is all that He asks of you! He wants you to confess your sin and call on Him by faith when you appear before Him. He believes you should accept His demise on the cross as the installment for your transgressions. Romans 10:9 says that He wants you to believe everything the Bible says about Him and to accept everything on faith. He will rescue you and satisfy your soul if you do that. You won't be able to hold on to the world's attractions any longer. He needs to save you and He needs to fulfill you! For that reason He is a particularly delicate Deliverer!)



A. v. 28 It Changed Her Exercises - When she hears that Jesus is the Savior, v. 26. She has all the data she wants. In verse 7, she loses track of her goal to obtain some water from the well. She wants to share her experience of the living water well with others now! She is unable to contain the "artesian well" that Jesus described in verse 14. She is unique, and she wants others to share her experience!


      (Note: Every life that Jesus saves is transformed in this manner. He changes old miscreants into something fresh out of the box new, 2 Cor. 5:17. The new saint of God loses interest in the old activities and attractions of sin and the world. They are aware that they are saved, that they are unique, and that they want others to learn about how Jesus can transform them as well! Everything will change when Jesus enters! You'll move in a different way, talk differently, and think differently. Nothing will be the same in the new life you will lead! You will transform from the inside out and from top to bottom.)


B. v. 28-29 It Changed Her Ambitions – She runs to tell the men about Jesus, as you can see. Who are the men? Everyone knew her; many most likely knew her personally! She was despised by the other women, but adored by the men. As a result, she turns to the very people who had witnessed her sinful life. When she runs in their direction, just imagine how curious they become. However, things have changed this time around!

            She isn't talking about a date at this point; She is discussing redemption. She is not here to have an affair with a man; She has arrived to discuss remarkable grace. He hasn't come searching for a date; She has arrived to discuss a Deliverer! Yes, she is unique, and those who know her best are the first to notice it!


      (Note: Once more, your life will change if salvation is true. You'll notice the difference in old friends, and the things you used to do before you met Jesus will become second nature to you. When you meet Him, everything changes!)


C. v. 29 It Changed Her Affirmation - Notice how this lady moved from not knowing Jesus to declaring Him as the Savior. He is called a "Jew" in verse 9. In refrain 11, she refers to Him as "Sir". She refers to Him as a "Prophet" in verse 19. By section 29, she has arrived where she refers to Him as "Christ". She regards Him as her soul's need. How could she make the movement from enmity to acknowledgment? The Ruler drove her delicately along. In just a few minutes, he transformed her perception of Him into the one and only hope she had. It was a strong, wonderful work of elegance!


      (Note: Assuming you hope to at any point be saved, you should come to where you comprehend that Jesus is your main expectation, Acts 4:12. That place will be yours if you follow the light the Lord gives you!)


Conc: Could it be said that you are saved today? On the off chance that you are, celebrate! Like that Samaritan lady that day, you have found that there is more in His well than simply water. Life, happiness, peace, blessings, power, glory, a blessed eternity, and a great deal more are all there. You ought to thank Him today for that. You must immediately come to Jesus Christ if you are not saved. He will save you if you turn to Him.
