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.” John 4:10
Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim. John 2:7
Jesus is the living water of life, the living water of truth that makes our souls never thirst. The water Samaria drew was the water of this world, that people drink but would be thirsty again, it is the water that would never satisfy our souls. A life without God is like the Canaan wedding banquet. When the wine runs out, people can only constantly mix water in the wine, which makes the wine weaker and tasteless. But the life with Jesus will become more and more mellow and taste like wine. Having Jesus as our Lord in our wedding banquet, he can turn water into wine, just like he transforms a meaningless and tasteless life into a life full of meaning and flavor. How did Jesus turn water into wine? By letting the servant fill the six-port aquarium, what we can do is continue to fill the six-port aquarium, and in the end it is God who turns the water into wine.
In the history of Christianity, all great things accomplished are accomplished in accordance with God’s absolute foreknowledge, and in accordance with God’s plan. It seems that man is planning and doing it, but in fact it is impossible to accomplish these things just by looking at man’s ability. It is God who did it. His absolute will accomplishes all of this, we are just a channel, and God uses us to accomplish it. Just as the Acts of the Apostles is not actually the Acts of the Apostles, but the Acts of the Holy Spirit, which is a biography of the Holy Spirit doing the will of God through the Apostles. In today’s times, the same Holy Spirit is also running among us, through us to exercise God’s will and accomplish God’s will. Therefore, we must become people who seek God’s will and keep pace with God, and become people who follow God’s absolute foreknowledge and plan to live with God’s plan, so that we can be used in God’s history, just like the apostles at the early Churches.
