Jn.4:10 – Jesus replied to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who is saying to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.”
This woman at the well apparently had no intention of turning her life toward the Lord that day when Jesus showed up in her world. From her religious conversation with Jesus she had a knowledge of what she believed and would argue her point. What changed that day? I would have to call it divine attraction. Jesus spoke to her and looked at her differently than any man had responded to her before. Something about Him was drawing her in. This is how it always is when a new season breaks into your world. Many think there are doing just fine spiritually. They may think others need revival and may even pray that way but when you finally find yourself in His presence it is a totally different story. He is drawing you in. Like Solomon said, SOS 1:4 – “Draw me, we will run after you…” Here is how Matthew Henry describes this divine attraction.
“When Christ pours out his Spirit on the church in general, which is his bride, all its members receive enlivening and quickening influences and are made to run to him more willingly. Or, “Draw me,” says the believing soul, “and then I will not only follow you myself as fast as I can but also bring all my family along with me: We will run after thee, I and the virgins that love thee, I and all who I have any interest in or influence on, I and my house, I and the transgressors whom I will teach thy ways”. Those who put themselves out to submit to divine grace will find that their zeal will provoke many. Those who are alive will be active; when Philip was drawn to Christ, he drew Nathanael, and they will be examples and so will win those who would not be won over simply by word of mouth.”
I believe the Lord is visiting our lives again just like He surprised the Samaritan woman. She didn’t realize how thirsty she was until Jesus came on the scene. The Lord is awakening this generation to their spiritual thirst. The only solution for this condition is to draw near and worship Him. In that place of worship His love will spring up in you like a fountain.

When Jesus went back to Bethany where He raised Lazarus from the dead, in John 12:19
But the Pharisees were disturbed by this and said to each other, “We won’t be able to stop this. The whole world is going to run after Him” Romans 5:20 Where sin abounded, grace did more abound. Change is here!
