The need for water led Moses to beg God on behalf of his people. God sent water flowing from a rock. The need for water led the Samaritan woman to the well, and to an encounter with Jesus. Jesus sparked her curiosity when he told her of the living water he could provide. Jesus’ story must have worked! The woman left her bucket behind in her zeal to tell others about him. Though she was a
sinner, her faith in Jesus brought her forgiveness and peace.
