You are a Jew, and I am a Samaritan—how can you ask me for a drink? Jews will not use the same cups and bowls that Samaritans use. Jesus answered, If you only knew what God gives and who is asking you for a drink, you would ask Him, and He would give you life-giving water.
Questions for Life Groups
- Read John 4:7-15. Why do you think the woman was fetching water during the hottest part of the day? Some speculate that this well was a longer walk from the well used by most living in Sychar — does it matter? Why or why not? Tell about your experiences with drinking water from a well.
- Read this week’s articles titled Chemistry. Have you ever been really thirsty? What was it like? Describe how you felt when you quenched your thirst? What else leaves us feeling parched when it is missing? What is living water for you?
- How can the members of your group help you this week and on-going to help you to be more receptive to hearing and understanding the Word of God? Pray for each other to have the Holy Spirit bless you with more courage.
