    The Woman's Interest Is Awakened

    The woman's light, bantering manner began to change. “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?” She saw before her only a thirsty traveler. In her mind she compared Him with Jacob. She was looking backward to the fathers, and forward to the Messiah's coming, while the Messiah Himself was beside her, and she knew Him not. How many thirsty souls are today close by the living fountain, yet looking far away for the wellsprings of life!HLv 117.3

    With solemn earnestness Jesus said, “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.”HLv 117.4

    Everywhere men long for something to supply the unsatisfied need of the soul. Only One can meet that want—Christ, “the Desire of all nations.” The divine grace which He imparts is as living water, purifying and invigorating the soul.HLv 117.5

    Jesus did not convey the idea that merely one draft of the water of life would suffice. He who tastes of the love of Christ will continually long for more; but he seeks for nothing else. The riches, honors, and pleasures of the world do not attract him. The constant cry of his heart is, More of Thee. Our Redeemer is an inexhaustible fountain. We may drink, and drink again; and ever find a fresh supply.HLv 117.6

    Jesus had aroused the woman's interest and awakened a desire for the gift of which He spoke. “Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.”HLv 118.1
