Living Water: John 4:10-16 (Julie Peyton)

ground water

John 4:10-16 (NRSV):

10 Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, ‘Give me a drink,’ you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.” 11 The woman said to him, “Sir, you have no bucket, and the well is deep. Where do you get that living water? 12 Are you greater than our ancestor Jacob, who gave us the well, and with his sons and his flocks drank from it?” 13 Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, 14 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.” 15 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.”

16 Jesus said to her, “Go, call your husband, and come back.”


What role, if any, does the Bible play in your spiritual journey?  On a scale from 0 to 10, with zero being “I rarely if ever read or think about the Bible” and ten being “this book is vital and life-giving to me and informs much of my spiritual practice,” where are you today, and where would you like to be?

Do you have a story of a time when the Spirit “opened” a passage of the Bible in a surprising/remarkable/life-giving way?

What is your biggest question, or uncertainty, about the Bible?

What Scriptures do you read other than the Bible?
