Did Jesus give the woman at the well a drink of water? Yes! He asked her for a drink and then shared with her the living water he had to offer. She believed him and told her village that she had found the Messiah. He knew she was a sinner! When we deny lost souls the opportunity to serve us or for us to help them, we also withhold Jesus from them. I’m not saying to participate in their sin, but we can profit from them or buy products from them and, in turn, show them the love of Jesus. We have a light within us that others don’t understand. How else are they going to see his love at work? I’m not talking about the big conglomerates who could care less about Jesus, but the mom and pops who may not know of his love for them. I’m not telling you to get your palm read; we know they know what they are doing is wrong, but maybe the local sandwich shop or bakery; their soul may need salvation in Jesus, so don’t feel bad about planting seeds there, or if they require service from you, help them; in doing so you will become the hands and feet of Jesus. Their particular sin may cause you to cringe, but think about how Jesus feels when we sin. Don’t withhold the love of Jesus because someone sins differently than you. Jesus covers your sins; their sins send them to hell forever because they don’t know him! Help them if they can be helped.
Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am he.” Just then his disciples came back. They marveled that he was talking with a woman, but no one said, “What do you seek?” or, “Why are you talking with her?” So the woman left her water jar and went away into town and said to the people, “Come, see a man who told me all that I ever did. Can this be the Christ?” John 4:26-29
