Living water

John Lanchbury | John 4:4-42 

When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, 'Will you give me a drink?'. (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.) ... Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman's testimony, 'He told me everything I've ever done.'

In a conversation lasting just a few minutes, Jesus breaks through the social barriers separating a Jewish man from a Samaritan woman, works out that her life is in a mess and convinces her that he himself is the "living water" that alone can bring true satisfaction in life. Jesus' gentle but purposeful questioning leads her to only one possible conclusion. Where are we on this journey?
