‘looking for love in all the wrong places?’

Looking for love in all the wrong places? Why not consider this love….

Greater love hath no man than this, that he would lay down his life for a friend!

He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee. And he must needs go through Samaria. Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour. There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink. (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.) Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans. Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water? Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw……

……  Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?

  1. Hi Brother Malachi! I was just so blessed by this message and the video!

  2. A dear Christian brother sent me a link to some ‘worship videos’ and when I saw the one of the Samaritan woman that met Jesus unexpectedly at the well, the Spirit spoke to my heart to post the video for all the world to see.

    There are a multitude of folk who do not know the Lord… How precious it would be to have that same Spirit that impressed upon my heart to generate this post, to lead a lost soul for the purpose of meeting this Blessed Savior… the man which told us all things that we ever did. This truly is the Savior!

    Peace my friend and pray the Spirit of God will finish up the post by doing His work.

  3. Good afternoon. My computer doesn’t do well with video clips, but the story of the woman at the well fully exemplifies the way folks today are indeed “looking for love in all the wrong places. Looking for that special person ,who is also born with the fallen nature, and expecting them to fill the God shaped void inside. It also displays the way that we struggle to look at things from a spiritual perspective. Jesus tells the lady “I’ll give you living water” and her initial response is “but you don’t have a bucket.” One of the fascinating things that the gospel of John does (as do the others) is reveal how hard it can be for us to look at things spiritually. We look at the natural and say things like “that’s five thousand people and we only have two loaves. How can we possibly feed all of these people?”

    Yet with God, all things are possible. Something else came to mind as I was writing the above paragraph on how we look to people for fulfilment. Last week in Kalamazoo, I encountered a somewhat older couple walking down the street holding hands. They seemed truly in love and it was a nice thing to behold. However, when I tried to share the gospel with them, (just a tract; nothing intrusive) they both got a most sour look on their faces. It was such a contrasting and sad thing. They are probably very nice people by the worlds standards, but they didn’t appear to have a heart for the things of God.

    Thanks for sharing this passage of scripture. Blessings always in Jesus name.
