Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 44

44. If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink (John 4:10).

The woman is stunned that a Jewish man would ask her for a drink. She perceives the sociological gap between them and can’t imagine why he would span it. But Jesus’ words show that she doesn’t understand the even wider gap between them. For He is God and He has water that will change her life forever. If she had any idea of that gap, she would pleadingly offer her cup to be filled. This is the true gap between us and the God we serve. When we forget that gap, we fail to ask for what He truly has available to us and we are less than we could be.
