    Honesty And Grace, The Deep Well Cleanser

    This book is different. It is mixed with facts and my imagination as we consider what was in the Samaritan womanís well. We will look at some things that most of us, at one time or another, have experienced, whether married or unmarried.

    Her well was deep and she knew it. It was so full of disappointment, failure, and discouragement that she could not draw up a drop of hope from it. Jesus met her in her need, just as he meets us in our need and offers his grace to enable us to clean all the stuff out of our well that is causing us to lose hope.

    No doubt she had been able to keep the lid on her well so no one could smell the stench of the stuff she had in it, but God knows the secrets of our heart and he wanted to put life giving water in her well. He said, ďThe water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.Ē (John 4:14b).

    It was after she was honest that pure, clean, life giving water began to replace the stuff that had clogged her well. We find her going back to her home town to tell its residents about it. Notice who she told: the men. Perhaps she had never had a man to show her such respect as Jesus had. I can see her walking with a spring in her step, her head held high, and her self-esteem rising as she neared the edge of town.

    Thatís what happens when we accept Godís grace. Grace is: favor, or kindness shown without regard to the worth or merit of the one who receives it, and in spite of what that same person deserves. If there is anything stored in your well that is keeping you from having life giving water flowing from it, Christ offers that same grace to you, to each of us.

    My hope is that you will allow the Holy Spirit to reveal to you anything that needs to be cleaned out of the well inside of you, so the pure water of life can flow freely in, and through you to others.
