Woman at the well- and how that it doesn't matter where people are from or who they are, Jesus still greets everyone and everyone has the gift of this "life water." Whoever drinks of Him shall thirst no more- which she doesn't understand really, but had heard that their is a Messiah "around" and then Jesus reveals himself. Jesus says my nourishment comes form doing the will of God- and thats how we get our Joy by staying in the word and being close with Jesus and when we do this we feel filled with him. Love 36 and that it says the fruit of our harvest is the people we bring to eternal life. Just like the first this healing of the officials son people just don't want to believe him for what they have heard but really want to see his works in action. We often times are the same and its hard for us to jus believe that things will be okay and what God has for us we want to see them happen.

Good chapter. The story of the women of the well has so much good stuff in it. Like Aaron said Jesus is welcoming and wanting to save all people. But it also teaches that Jesus is all knowing. He knew everything about the women without even talking to her. I also liked in the story of how as soon as the women heard about Jesus she was eager to share about him. As Christians we should be as eager to talk about Jesus like the women at the well. We have an amazing gift and we should share it.
Jesus does not care who you are or what you have done he loves you all the same. His gift of living water is available until we die. when Jesus says living water he is not talking in literal terms he is talking in seratulaul terms. We need this living water so we will never thirst again. You should long to be with God and take part in his bountiful harvest. I like what Dustin said she was so excited to know more about this eternal water. Do not be embarrassed that you love God tell everyone. Again in verses 32-33 he is talking about the spirit not the flesh! Verse 38 is great Jesus already did the work all you need to do is take the harvest of living water!
Love one another. Which is basically like God proving his love to us through Jesus. Like Aaron and Dustin said-Jesus is welcoming and wanting to save all people. After all he created everyone. I've said this like million time in past post- don't talk about yourself because guess what no one seems to care! Talk about God everyone needs to hear about the word! Like Tanner said verse 38 is nice. Jesus already did the work all you need to do is take the harvest of living water!
