Isaiah 12:3 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Isaiah 12:3

“With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.”

Jesus is the well of salvation that we can joyfully draw from if we surrender to Him! I love this verse, and it instantly took me to the lady at the well in John chapter 4! When that Samaritan woman came to the well to draw physical water, she had no idea she was going to draw Living Water from the Messiah! She came to the well broken, disgraced, shamed, sad, lonely, and I’m sure in a ton of pain. You can tell by her answers she has been hurt and cast out by many and doesn’t want to be bothered. 

But Jesus breaks down her walls with His persistent loving inquiries, smashing social norms and treating her like a person, like a Child of God, not some outcast or degenerate! I’m sure this was both confusing and humbling at the same time! I’m sure she was waiting for the punch line or for the hammer to drop, but all that dropped were the walls of pain and hurt she had built over the years! She went to the well an outcast and left the well a Child of God! The joy, love and acceptance she must have felt had to be overwhelming because she left her bucket and ran into to town to tell the very people that shunned her and she hid from!

We can either draw water from this world or from the eternal spring of life that is Jesus Christ! He is waiting at the well today. Will you draw from Him?

John 4:13-14: Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life."

God bless! I love you all! Glory, Honor, and Praise forever to God Almighty, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, and the Spirit of Truth the Holy Spirit!
