The woman said, "I know that the Messiah is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us."
Then Jesus declared, “I who speak to you am he.” (John 4:25-26)
One of the things you hear a lot from people is, “The first thing I’m going to do when I get to heaven is to ask God___________.” I suppose we think that God somehow owes us some sort of explanation for the way things have happened in this life.
But I think the conversation with the woman at the well, shows us that God is a lot more interested in offering us his presence than he is in offering us a bunch of explanations. We ask for answers, and he gives us himself. We say, “Well, what about___________?” And he says, “I am.”
