Reflection on John 4:1-18

Scripture

“Those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh bubbling spring within them, giving eternal life.

Observation

Returning from Judea to Galilee, Jesus passes through the Samaritan village of Sychar. He stops to rest at Jacob’s well. A Samaritan woman comes to draw water.

Jesus tells the woman about the living water He has which can become a spring that bubbles up within and gives eternal life.

Application

Jesus is the water of life, the source of eternal life.

The water He offers is not just a refreshing drink on a hot day- a drink that is soon forgotten.

Jesus’ water is eternal life. When we drink deeply from Him, He refreshes our soul. He gives us resilience , the strength to live with joy through the trials of life.

The water that Jesus gives enables us to live forever. This water cleanses us from sin and restores our relationship with God.

This eternal life, sustained by dwelling in Him, becomes a source of life for others. A spring bubbles up within us.

That living water must flow out to others. The life that Christ gives to me is meant to be shared. A spring that is blocked up is no longer a spring.

We share the living water by bringing Christ to others through our testimony. We are called to witness to others about the powerful change Christ has brought to us.

We also share Christ by sharing the incredible love He has for all people. Acts of love, deeds of kindness, reconciliation of relationships, bring life to other people and point them to Christ.

Prayer

Thank you Jesus for being living water to me. Show me who to share your life with today and every day. Amen.
