October 11, 2017: Never Be Thirsty Again

Today’s Bible Reading: Jeremiah 26-29Ecclesiastes 8John 4:1-14James 5:7-12

John 4:1-14:

Note: As we go through John’s Gospel together over the next few weeks, I refer you to fuller comments in my recently published commentary on John’s Gospel, as well as the recently published Bible study guide. In addition, at College Church we are currently working our way through John’s Gospel on Sunday mornings, and that will provide you with another take on the material.

Take, then, and read a full analysis of this section of John, and this morning simply reflect on the following bullet points:

  • What do we learn from Jesus’ request for help (“give me water”) as an introduction to an evangelistic conversation? Does this reset the potential power dynamic in such a way that there might be openness hear the good news?
  • Are we willing to talk to the “Samaritans” of our day and share with them the good news of Jesus?
  • Have you experienced that water of life, that if you drink from it you will never be thirsty again?
  • How does this call us to seek our greatest satisfaction in none other than Christ himself?

    “What do we learn from Jesus’ request for help (‘give me water’) as an introduction to an evangelistic conversation? Does this reset the potential power dynamic in such a way that there might be openness hear the good news?” <–This is wonderful!

    And I have seen that.
    I remember a weekend when our car broke down, and I asked my neighbor to borrow a carseat, and my friend's husband for a ride to church.
    In both those cases, I think there was some kind of openness to talk about the Lord that I don't normally expect to be there…
