Last weekend I spent a lovely time with the ladies from Lehman Church. While with them, we studied the story of the Women at the Well , a familiar story many to many. (John 4). I’ve read this story many times but last night my sister turned it upside down by saying, “You know the Women at the Well is the wrong title. It’s the Man at the Well that still makes the difference.
It was the Man at the well who transformed the life of the lonely woman, and it’s the Man at the well who can transform ours.
It was the Man at the well who quenched the woman’s longing. It’s the Man at the well who wants to quench ours.
It was the Man who said, “Come unto me all that labor and I will give you rest” and it’s the same Man who calls your name today.
It was the man of the well who said, “There is no greater love than to lay your life down for a friend,” and it’s the same Man who then laid down His.
It’s the Man who cried out, “It is finished.” and then erased my every stain.
It’s the man who IS the well who said, “I am going to prepare a home for you,” and it’s this Man who’s having the tables set and the beds made.
It’s all about the Man who met a woman at her lonely well. It’s all about this Man who will meet you at yours.
It’s the story of the Man at the Well.
Now grab your buckets and let’s meet him there!
