Lovefast 2: The Andalouse of Zaghouan, Tunisia

By Chas from Mahabba Croydon

 

Daily verse

Jesus answered her, ‘If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.’

‘Sir,’ the woman said, ‘you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his livestock?’

Jesus answered, ‘Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.’
— John 4:10-14, NIVUK
 

Thought for the day

Living water

As a devout Muslim I was happy with my belief. I did not feel the need of a Saviour because it was all about me and my good works.

At school I met a Christian girl and we fell in love. Controversially we got married.

Six months later, we went to a Christian camp. I just went for the holiday!

I entered the end of a meeting as some people were being prayed for. They offered me prayer too.

I thought nothing would happen and they would see that Allah is the true God! When they prayed I started to weep uncontrollably!

God showed me a presentation of all the wrongs that I had done:

This is what you did, I am throwing it into the trash

It was a very humbling and sobering experience. That was the moment when I met with God, and I wanted that forever.
