Is there an emptiness in your life that can’t be filled? Do you find yourself thirsting for deeper meaning, hope, and purpose? In the Bible, Jesus approaches a woman drawing water from a well and asks her for a drink. He then offers her something even more sustaining…the living water that only He can provide:
When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, "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?”… 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."
"Sir," the woman said, "you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water?”…
Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life." (John 4:7-14)
A glass of cold water provides relief and refreshment, but only for a time. Likewise, even the best things in life—our friends, our family, our hobbies—cannot sustain us forever. As our name suggests, The Well Outreach encourages everyone to draw deep from the well of living water—which comes only through a life-changing relationship with Jesus, the Son of God. You’ll be refreshed, renewed, and restored…not just for a moment, but for eternity.
Would you like to know about who Jesus is…or what it looks like to have a relationship with God? The Bible tells us to admit our mistakes to God, accept the forgiveness provided through Jesus and be baptized, and begin to live in the direction and guidance of the Holy Spirit. The book of John (in the Bible) is a great place to begin this journey—just read through it at your own pace. Gospel.com/discover also offers a unique, interactive experience that guides you through the process of—and answers questions about—being reconciled to God. Finally, contact a local church for the support, wisdom, and encouragement of others who are also drawing from “the living well."
