Jesus’ conversation with the Samaritan woman at the well.
Jesus had just asked the Samaritan woman for a drink and had said to her “if you knew the gift of God in your presence, you’ll ask for living water”. The woman, in reply, made a statement saying;
“Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. Where then will You get that living water? Are You greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank from it himself, as well as his sons and his livestock?” John 4:11-12 NKJV
This was what the woman was used to. She knew the history behind Jacob’s well. She had fetched from it for years and to her, it felt like there was nothing better than Jacob’s well and all she had known all her life.
Jesus was offering something better, but what she had always been used to was an hindrance.
This is really how it is with many believers. We cling to history, experiences we and others have had. We hold onto past issues, pressures and so on, more than anything. So, when Jesus is offering something better, we can’t even recognize how amazing it is!
Knowing that we can’t put new wine in an old wine skin because it would waste (Mark 2:22), we all have the responsibility as God’s children to yield to the new.
Jesus bids us to let go of the former so that we can have the new. It has to be new wine in new wine skin.
You are blessed!
