DAILY READINGS: 1 Kings:15:1-32; Jeremiah 26; Colossians:3:5 to 4:1
Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither. John:4:16
...they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water. Jer:2:13
Jesus offered this woman living water, but she could only think of earthly water. To foster a desire for the water which He offered, Jesus reminded her of her “broken cisterns”. "Go, call thy husband." It exposed the brokenness of her life but thankfully Jesus specializes in brokenness. She recognized in Him a Saviour and left her waterpot behind. He had become her fountain of living waters. What is your broken cistern? Let the Lord Jesus replace it with "a well of water springing up into everlasting life" (John:4:14). —Tom Steere
Open wide the living fountain, whence the healing waters flow;
Be Thyself our cloudy pillar all the dreary desert through. —W. Williams
