6 Jacob’s well was there; and Jesus, tired from the long walk, sat wearily beside the well about noontime. source John 4
He was tired.
Really, really tired.
Some translations say exhausted.
Think about that! GOD determined He would allow Himself to experience tiredness to let us know He knows what it is like to be us! He knows how it feels to be tired. Tired to the bone tired! Can’t walk another step tired.
Yet! Even so. He set aside His flesh and bone body comfort and offered the woman at the well eternal life. She who came to the well at noon because it was too uncomfortable for her to come to the well in the cool of the morning like the other women did. But that’s a whole other story.
May we see today that He came to identify with us so we could identify with Him! So we can in His GOD strength set aside our flesh and bone comforts to help someone else in need.
