The woman said to Him,, “Sir, give me this water so that I will not get thirsty and have to keep coming here to draw water.” Jesus told her, “Go call your husband and come back.” “I have no husband,” the woman replied. Jesus said to her, “You are correct to say that you have no husband. The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have just said is quite true.’ (John 4:17-18)
In this conversation, Jesus is talking about the heavenly or spiritual realm and the lady stuck with her worldly realm, as most of us are throughout our life!” husband” is shown as the one whom wife keeps her trust or depends upon or he is the provider. In this journey of our life, we should not rely on anything on anyone more than our Lord! He is the ultimate source who can satisfy us, other than Him everyone/everything is temporary and can never satisfy our soul. Nothing is stable in this world.
We live in a world of misdirected trust. People put their hopes, dreams, and security in the things of this world. Now, not all things of the world are necessarily bad, but no matter how valuable or useful they are, they are not where our total trust should reside.
The practical consequence of faith in God is trust, which we prove by living out our full acceptance of, and dependency upon, God’s promises day by day.
