While travelling by taxi or autorickshaw in India, I rarely tell the person who is driving that I am a Physician, because then (going by the trend for the last 30 years), they would usually give me details of all the sicknesses they have suffered in their lives and also get a free consultation and prescription for their present illnesses. Moreover some would overcharge me thinking that the Physician's pockets are overflowing. Anonymity is good to a certain extent...
Sitting by Jacob's well in Sychar (John Ch.4), Jesus, the anonymous stranger started some small talk with a woman who had multiple life partners. When she came to a realization that the man could possibly do miracles because he claimed he could give her water that would be the ultimate thirst quencher, she pleaded...“Sir, give me this water so that I won't get thirsty and have to keep coming here to draw water.” (John 4:15)
She must have thought that this would be the answer (a quick fix) to the troubling whispers that she had to endure each day as she went to draw water, (being part of the SIC-Sychar Immoral Club). But as she dreamed of a miracle, the stranger nonchalantly told her to go call her husband. She had an answer ready to the stranger's question, perhaps one that she had told many in the past....“I have no husband”. What Jesus said next must have pierced her innards, a statement delivered with surgical precision......“You are right when you say you have no husband. The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband." The spiritual dialogue continued till the stranger revealed himself to her as the Messiah and she believed in him. Not only her, many others in the town believed.
Jesus may not be the anonymous stranger to us anymore, but he knows precisely where we are erring and speaks to us repeatedly to get rid of our moral filth, whatever it be.
James, the Lord's brother states it aptly,
Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you. (James 1:21)
(Are you looking for a quick fix for your sin?
By the way, the definition of Quick Fix is...an easy remedy or solution, especially a temporary one which fails to address underlying problems.)
