Dr. David Jeremiah Daily Devotional December 12 2023.

    The theme for today’s devotional by Dr. David Jeremiah is ”Thirst-Aid Station

    SCRIPTURE: Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied from His journey, sat thus by the well. -John 4:6

    Jacob’s Well is still in the same place it was two thousand years ago when Jesus stopped for a drink. Visitors can still drink water pulled up in a bucket from its depths. Many tour groups in the Holy Land can’t go there because of political difficulties, but those who do find the ancient well surrounded by a lovely Greek Orthodox church.

    In John 4:6, we’re told that Jesus was weary. He sat down at the well and feeling dehydrated asked for a drink. He wanted the Samaritan woman to draw some water for His thirst. In return, He gave her something for her spiritual thirst—His own living water!

    When our Lord entered the world at Bethlehem, He came as a human who was subject to fatigue, thirst, hunger, and pain. He accepted His humanity because through it He was able to meet our needs and satisfy our spiritual thirst forever.

    You may never be able to visit Jacob’s Well in Samaria, but you’re welcome to drink from the living water of eternal life that Jesus gives.

    I came to Jesus, and I drank of that life-giving stream; my thirst was quenched, my soul revived, and now I live in Him.
    Horatius Bonar
