The story of the woman at the well holds a particular interest because it speaks so directly to all of us. There are times in each of our lives when we stray from the path back to our Heavenly Father, and all need to know there is a way back home.
In the story of the woman at the well, the Savior invites the Samarian women to drink of the living waters. She mistakenly thinks Jesus is speaking of the water dripping from her jar. It is only as she sits at his feet and listens to His words that she comes to know Jesus is speaking of the spiritual waters of repentance.
It was Jesus who gave rest to the woman’s troubled soul that day, and it is He who continues to give rest to a troubled world. He stands ready to forgive if we will but ask, and He continues to show each of us there is always a way back home.
