When Jesus met the Samaritan woman at the well, the first thing he did was to ask for what she could manage to give. He asked her for water to drink. Jesus drew attention to the issue of giving because it is really something we all need to grasp in order to trully experience God’s abundance.
Everyone has something or has access to something of value in this world. For the Samaritan woman, it was the ability to access water from the well. You also have access to things that can help open up rewarding transactions with God.
In John 4: 7 the Bible says, “There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink” (KJV). Now, when God asks you for water it means he is ready to give you his supernatural water to quench your thirst forever. When he asks for your life it means he wants to give you everlasting life.
Giving is vital in our relationship to God. If we want to receive riches we can keep forever, we then need to grasp the Lord’s principle of giving. Jesus said to the Samaritan woman, “Give me to drink”. This was at the well that Jacob had given to his son Joseph. At that Well the topic of giving was relavant as it is still relavant today. The truth is that giving opens the windows of heaven. God will always pour out blessings on those who give to him.
If you are a minister, it means you are a representive of God here on earth. From the little that people give to your ministry, God opens them up to his abundance. Some of the people you minister to may not even have enough, but their giving affords them the opportunity to tap into God’s supernatural supply.
Ministers who are trully ordained of God are the most obvious gateway into God’s abundance. Denying people the opportunity to give out of the little God has placed in their hands robs them of their blessings. Let the people give so that God can open the windows of heaven for them.
During the conversation with the Samaritan woman in John 4: 10 we are told, “Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water” (KJV). God is ready to give unto you even more. Just ask!
