Luke 19:10 (NLT)
For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.
John 4:3-7 (NLT)
So he (Jesus) left Judea and returned to Galilee. 4 He had to go through Samaria on the way. 5 Eventually he came to the Samaritan village of Sychar, near the field that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. 6 Jacob’s well was there; and Jesus, tired from the long walk, sat wearily beside the well about noontime.
7 Soon a Samaritan woman came to draw water, and Jesus said to her, “Please give me a drink.”

John 4:13-14 (NLT)
“Anyone who drinks this water will soon become thirsty again. 14 But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal (overflowing, fully-satisfying) life.”
John 4:15 (NLT)
“Please, sir,” the woman said, “give me this water! Then I’ll never be thirsty again, and I won’t have to come here to get water.”

Anyone united with the Messiah gets a fresh start, is created new. The old life is gone; a new life burgeons! Look at it!

John 4:28-30 (NLT)
The woman left her water jar beside the well and ran back to the village, telling everyone, 29 “Come and see a man who told me everything I ever did! Could he possibly be the Messiah?” 30 So the people came streaming from the village to see him.
