Jesus in a dry place
People who have departed from promises of God
People in bondage
Dry and weary land, hard to get water
What happens when the woman meets Jesus?
First would ignore him
Jewish man would have nothing to do with any Samaritan
Much less a woman who was at the fringes of society at best
Jesus approaches her with something very simple.
She would like to hide but he is the only one with forgiveness and life.
What has made our world dry?
Whatever the story we all arrive together at the well
Deep, no rope, no bucket
Who has an answer? Only Jesus.
All the other religions in this world finally look to us as our own savior. Only Christianity has that focus in what God has done for us.
Came in the person of Jesus, God the Son, to bear our sins
Entirely man, entirely God
Loved us while we were still sinners
Died in our place
Promises an inheritance to all who trust him.
Springs of living water
Nourishment in Word and Sacrifice
Everlasting hope in sure and certain promises
All this only in Jesus, the only hope for the world.
Jesus calls all people to trust only in him
Jesus calls you and me to trust him as the only savior of the world.
Join as we pray for the redemption of those who are far away, without hope, alienated from the true and living God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Lord, have mercy
