“… the stone has been rolled away from the mouth of the well. then we will water the sheep.” Genesis 29:8

According to the shepherds at the well–the sheep can’t be watered because of the huge stone that was blocking the water from flowing. This makes sense.

However, a large stone that needs to be rolled away always directs my heart to a different stone that covered an opening. The shepherds in Genesis 29 needed access to the water in order to give their sheep a drink of life giving goodness.

Early on the 1st day of the week a sone needed to be rolled away to provide access to the Living Water.

This is what Jesus has done in the resurrection.  How we have access to Living Water from a well that will never go dry. Numerous times in scripture, the faithful are depicted as sheep. Perhaps, like Jacob, we who have access to Jesus–our Living Water–are called to water the sheep as well.  We are called to introduce the thirsty to the thirst quencher.

Will you bring them to the water? the Large stone has been rolled away–Now is the time!
