This is the day the LORD hath made let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Jews did everything they could to avoid going through Samaria. But John tells us that Jesus had to go through Samaria.  He had to go to Sychar, because He sought there a certain thirsty woman who didn't even know yet that she was thirsty.

This woman certainly wasn't looking for Jesus. If Jesus hadn't spoken to her, she probably would have left the well without saying anything. But Jesus asked her for a drink of water. This surprised the woman as who would ask a Jew for a drink of water.

Jesus wanted to quench her spiritual thirst with His words of forgiveness. This is why He had to go to Sychar to ask this particular woman for a drink. His love for her drove Him to seek and find her.

The Savior still seeks the thirsty. Although we had no desire to go to Him, He came to us.  Jesus spoke to us in His Word. Although we didn't even know that we were thirsty. He comes to us to quench our thirst with His words of forgiveness. The Savior's love for us drove Him to seek and find us, just as He sought and found the thirsty woman at the well in Sychar.
 
God's love that drew salvation's plan
Embraces every class of man;
It breaks the toughest racial wall
Because it offers Christ to all.

PRAY -  LORD Jesus, all praise to you for seeking and finding my thirsty soul. Amen
