One ironic feature of our modern world is that we have the ability to be more connected than ever, yet studies show that our sense of being disconnected is at an all-time high. Recently I spoke with someone who gave this voice saying, “Although I am surrounded by people, I feel so alone.”
This is precisely where we find the woman at the well in John 4. Although the woman lives in a town full of people, the missteps of her past, the choices she’s made, and the scorn of others have left her alone. She comes to the well in the heat of the day, long after the other women have gone, expecting no one to be there.
Instead she meets Jesus, who speaks to her about the thirst for connection and wholeness that has plagued her soul. Jesus offers living water and the woman longingly says, “Give me this water so that I will never thirst again.” As the story unfolds, her life is forever transformed by connection with Jesus.
At Living Hope we know that lives are transformed and people are made whole by connecting with Jesus. With Jesus, a dead-end past becomes a purposed future. With Jesus, a life of despair finds a living hope. With Jesus, the thirst of souls is forever satisfied. Living Hope wants to help you connect to Jesus Christ and to His community.
