John 4:1-15 Water

Chapter 4 of John’s gospel introduces us to the woman at the well in Samaria.  As with Nicodemus and Mary previously, Jesus speaks to someone about spiritual and eternal things while they speak about the same things on a material and temporal, earthly level.  In this first part of the chapter, Jesus speaks 3 times.  verse 7, “Give me a drink.”  Verse 10, “If you knew…”  Verse 13-14 – the water Jesus offers.  Jeremiah 2:13 helps us to see that Jesus offers water that satisfies now and forever while so often we seek satisfaction and joy in the things of this world.
