King James Version (KJV)
13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.
16 Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.
17 The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:
18 For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.
I am heartbroken at how the women of this world has often settled for
anything men have put beforethem. We as men, and yes I did say we because I am guilty of things I have done not to encourage women, but to discourage them. I believe in
men being the head of women because God ordained that in the Garden of
Eden. However, it was never supposed to be used to manipulated or cause
mental and physical abuse.
Listen women, no man can take you where you don’t allow. As women and especially women of God, the men that are being chosen are not the men God planned for you to be intimate with and allow in your life. Jesus tells this woman that she’s had 5 husbands and the one she was with was not her husband. She may have really beenmarried 5 times and shacking with the one or as tradition has it, she was probably in and out of sexual relationships with no commitment. This is the norm for men and women today because no one wants to be committed to anything. So we have children everywhere in broken situations and women who are having to try to be Mom and Dad which is impossible.
God’s way is still the best way and everything attached to you will suffer if
you disobey Him. God ordained married and then intimacy and nothing else
works right. Don’t let the men of this world lure you away from the Man
God has chosen for you. Remember that God chooses one man for you and
the others you choose on your own. The right man will first be saved, go
to Church, read his Bible and be a praying man. He should remind you of
the Man Christ Jesus that should first be your Savior and Lord. He
should have a job and be willing to make sacrifices for the woman he is
marrying and ultimately his Family. Love for anyone must be examined
before it is acted upon because there is action attached to the word. Be
very careful who you make your man, you may be sleeping with your enemy.
