Asia Bibi -Woman at the Well

Have you seen this? Jesus still uses women at wells to tell His story! Praise God for Living Water.

Read Asia’s Story Here

As I read Asia’s story, I cant help but think about the woman at the well (John 4).

Based on cultural context, the Samaritan woman had to be married to survive. She had no legal authority to divorce, and no protection against being divorced. Without a father or grown sons, a divorced or widowed woman had just one option- to find another man to provide for her. Jesus met her at the well and had his longest documented conversation with her. He met the Samaritan woman in her rejection and dependency and offered her His Living Water. He showed her that her worth was not based on her marital status, but instead, her belief in Him.

Asia Bibi visited a well too, took a drink, and was beaten and imprisoned for her faith. Just like the Samaritan woman, Asia emerges from her experience at the well declaring praise for the Living God.

Let’s pray those who beat her and those who imprisoned her come to know the life-changing power of Living Water.
