She was obviously thirsting for life. She was just looking for it in all the wrong places. But her life was changed in an instant when her soul took in a big drink of the love and grace of God. Here He was, the Messiah, the Holy One of God. He knew everything about her life. And He loved her anyways. Someone like Him offered eternal life to someone like her.
And when her eyes were opened to see Jesus, when His love touched her heart, when the brokenness of her life encountered the reality of His life, it changed everything. It wasn’t about who she was or what she had done. It was all about understanding the Source.
