One day Jesus was walking through a town in Samaria. He was hot and tired so he sat down beside a well to rest. A woman came to the well to get some water and Jesus asked her if she would give him a drink. The woman was surprised that Jesus spoke to her because Jews would not usually speak to Samaritans. She said to him, "Why do you ask me for a drink since you are a Jew and I am a Samaritan?"
Jesus answered and said, "If you knew who was asking you for a drink, you would ask him for a drink and he would give you living water."
"You don't even have anything to get water in, how can you give me living water?" the woman asked.
Then Jesus explained, "Whoever drinks from the water from this well will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst again."
Jesus wasn't talking about the thirst for water from a well, he was talking about a thirst for God. The Bible teaches us that we have a thirst in our heart for the living God and that is a thirst that only Jesus can satisfy. So, when we have Jesus in our heart, he totally satisfies our thirst for God and we will never thirst again!
