Water is essential for the survival of all forms of life. Everything needs water to survive and that’s why we always say: “water is life”. Certainly water is life, because if we last days without drinking water we can reach death. However, the water of this world is transient, and there is another type of water that we must procure, which is more important and eternal.
The Bible tells us about Jesus and the Samaritan woman, both held a certain kind of conversation. Jesus comes to that place and asks for water, then that woman mentions the conflict that existed between the Jews and the Samaritans to which Jesus responds:
Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”
If that woman had realized who was the person that was asking for water she would not hesitate to give it to him, it was the Son of God himself, can you imagine Jesus asking for water? What a great privilege that would be. The Samaritan woman knew nothing of what was happening there and that is why in the following verses she speaks to Jesus as if He were a mere mortal, telling Him that the well is deep and that from where He could draw that living water.
