A story is told of a Bedouin shepherd's response to the persistence of a man telling him about Jesus. The shepherd said, "I understand why you are persistent. You do not want to commit the sin of the desert." The man did not understand what the shepherd meant. The Bedouin explained, "The sin of the desert is knowing where there is water but refusing to tell others."

The woman at the well understood this. After hearing Jesus explain that He was the Living Water who could quench her thirst forever, she immediately went into town to tell others.

Then, leaving her water jar, the woman went back to the town and said to the people, "Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Christ?" (John 4:28-29) 

Will you join me in not committing the sin of the desert but instead introducing people to the Oasis of Life — the Living Water — our beloved Savior.


Sharing the journey with you,
