Villagers Go To A Different Well To Receive Living Water

by The Gideons International on February 15, 2013

In 2005, a country in Asia experienced an earthquake, and more than 73,000 people lost their lives. The first responders were Christians and as relief supplies poured in, so did thousand of copies of God’s Word. A village cleric received one of the Scriptures and asked the Gideon who gave it to him to help him understand Jesus. Somehow he knew he just needed to know about this Jesus.

The Gideon responded and then led the cleric in a prayer to receive Christ. The cleric then took his New Testament home and led his entire family to Christ.

The villagers were very upset when they found out their spiritual leader had abandoned their faith for Christianity. They refused to allow his family water from the village well, in effect condemning his family to death. In desperation while calling out to God, he began to dig a well in his house with his bare hands, and he eventually found water.

Two weeks later, the village well dried up. Where do you think the villagers came for water? The former cleric didn’t deny anyone water, provided they allowed him to share about the “living water.” His village is now a Christian village.

I praise God for this miracle. This man clearly demonstrated God’s word is real. I Corinthians 5:17 tells us in Christ we are a new creation. Behold old things have passed away and behold all things become new. If he was not born again he would not share the water. It is on his private property. But Jesus has promised blessings when we obey him. Love your enemies. Never repay evil with evil but with good. This man clearly was used by God to convert the whole village.
