What Jesus Did! 'If You Only Knew' — John 4:10

Thursday, March 3, 2022

Jesus replied [to the Samaritan woman at Jacob's well], "If you only knew the gift God has for you and who you are speaking to, you would ask me, and I would give you living water."
— John 4:10 NLT

Key Thought

But we do know who he is, don't we? We do know who is talking with the woman at the well! We do know that he is the gift of God! So why don't we ask that the Lord Jesus slake our spiritual thirst with living water?

Today's Prayer

Lord Jesus, please make me alive to your living water welling up within me. Slake my thirst. Nurture my soul. Fill me with your grace. Uphold me in your presence. Please energize me in these ways through your Spirit to the glory of your name and to the praise of our Father in heaven. Amen.
