“The woman then left her waterpot, went her way into the city, and said to the men,” (John 4:28 NKJV)
- Why in the story of the Samaritan woman does the Holy Spirit specify she left her waterpot? The water He was providing was spiritual and she would still need a waterpot for daily life correct?
To my understanding, we are earthen vessels carrying this treasure of the Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 4:7) but one day we will meet Him and be changed (1 Corinthians 15:51-53).
- Is the Samaritan woman leaving her waterpot a visual of 1 Corinthians 15:35-38 and Romans 8:18? That what we are now, compared to what we will be when He comes, is like comparing an old waterpot to the Son of God?
“Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.” (I Corinthians 15:51-53 NKJV)
“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” (Romans 8:18 NKJV)
