The Samaritan woman at the well (John 4:3-18) symbolizes millions throughout history who have tried their best to satisfy a yearning for love and completion. But the sense of emptiness cannot be permanently satisfied until a person comes to Christ. We were created to honor and glorify Him, and no other pursuit can bring a sense of long-term pleasure and purpose. When you receive Jesus as your Savior, you never have to feel empty again. His love surpasses all understanding.
