This New Adventure

Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

John 4: 13-14

The story of Jesus meeting the woman at the well is a beautiful representation of Christ-centered recovery. The woman at the well was doing what she had always done. She went to the well at a time when she thought no one else would be there. She was trying to avoid others because of the shame she was carrying with her. But, instead of being alone at the well, she found herself face to face with Christ.

Christ doesn’t condemn her or scold her about how she has been living her life. It’s obvious because she has chosen this time of day to be at the well, she wants to avoid contact with others. She is aware of her sin and is consumed with shame because of it. Jesus tells her to give Him a drink from the well, and she responds by attempting to engage Him in a theological discussion. Jesus simply brings the conversation back around to her and what she needs. Jesus did not get caught up in her attempts to deflect and project. His focus remained on the one thing this woman needed more than anything else. She had been thirsting for fulfillment through relationships with men to satisfy the void that consumed her. Jesus was there to completely fill the void that she had never been able to fill through an addiction to relationships.

In Christ-centered recovery, we see two things at work in this story. The woman does a sort of fearless moral inventory with Christ. Christ tells her “all about herself” and then tells her that He is Christ. The next thing she does is to go tell everyone in her village about Christ and what He has done for her. In doing so, she was the first example of being an evangelist who brought the Good News to others by her example, and by her words. This is a wonderful example of what happens to us as we go through the recovery process. We isolate ourselves until Christ shows up and starts the healing process. Afterward, we can’t wait to tell the world what Christ has done. Recovery happens when we stop trying to be satisfied with anything other than Christ.

Today’s Prayer

Father God, Help us to see that the only thing that can satisfy us is Your Son, Jesus Christ. We drink for the water of everlasting life in order to never thirst for anything else again. Nothing can fill the emptiness except for Christ. Amen.
