Third Sunday of Lent 2017 – John 4:13-15
Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but those who drink of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty. The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life.” The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water, so that I may never be thirsty or have to keep coming here to draw water.”
Have you ever heard the phrase, ‘Man does not live by bread alone?’ I thought of this when I read these verses today. Obviously, the woman won’t be able to live without well water, but Jesus is affirming her need for spiritual “water” as well. Faith and health: connection made.
Gracious God whose love flows out like a river, join us in our steps today so that you are our guide. Amen.
