Pick-Up Lines

"A woman of Samaria came to draw water.  Jesus said to her, 'Give me a drink.'"  John 4: 8

"Give me a drink."!!!  What kind of pick up line is that?  Is that how they opened conversation in the first century?  Nowadays, the man would ask the lady, "May I get you a drink?"

Whatever.  It worked.  The Samaritan woman at the well and Jesus started talking.  Soon a relationship developed.  And that's what Jesus wants with all of us.  He wants us to converse with him, which is prayer.  He wants to quench our thirst, which can never be satisfied, unless it's living water.  He is the living water.  And it's free. 

All anyone has to do is talk like you live in the first century, "Give me a drink."  C'mon belly up to the bar.    Say, "I'll have a tall Living Water, on the rocks, please."
