"Messiah" - Day 17
The woman said, "I know that the MESSIAH is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us." Then Jesus declared, "I, the one speaking to you - I am he."
I really want to encourage you to read the exchange between Jesus and the Samaritan woman in its entirety - it is so beautiful. Here, we see a woman broken by the world. She had five husbands and after all of them was with a sixth man to fill the hole in her heart at the time she was talking to Jesus. Jesus spoke very plainly to her and his speech was filled with truth and reassurance. Often for us, the worst part of life is not the battles we face head on, but rather the unknown. Jesus as our Messiah came to save us from death. And just as He gave wisdom to the Samaritan woman, let's give thanks for the wisdom he brings us in his word.
