The body of Christ is thirsty; almost dehydrated from not knowing where to find the living water that Jesus refers to when speaking to the woman at the well.
When he tells her he has water she may drink of and never thirst again, she immediately says; BUT … “I do this or that” “but we worship here or there” … to which He replies; “Woman, believe Me, an hour is coming when neither in this mountain, (of self-effort) nor in Jerusalem, (external ways to judge your spiritual life) shall you worship the Father for He must be worshiped in Spirit and Truth. The LIVING PERSON of Christ IN YOU.
Most of us have had our days searching in all the wrong places; outside and not inside our common human vessels where the pearl of great price, the living person of Christ himself resides.
2Cor.5:17 “If any man be in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold all things have become new …” because; 2Cor. 5:21 “He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him …”
Total exchange; He became us so we can become Him and it is for now; not when we die and go to heaven.
