Jesus answered, “If you knew Gods gift and who I am, you would ask me for living water.”

She replied, “Sir, you have nothing to draw water and the well is deep. From where will you get this living water? Are you greater than our forefather Jacob, who gave us this well from which he, his family and animals drank?”

Jesus replied, “He who drinks this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks the water I give will never thirst again. It will become a fountain within, springing into eternal life.”
Feb 8 She said, “Sir, give me this thirst-quenching water so I dont have to come here again.”

Jesus answered, “Go get your husband.” “I have none,” she replied.

“Yes, in fact, for youve had five, and the one you now have isnt your husband,” he said. She replied, “Sir, I can see that you are a prophet. Our ancestors worshipped on this mountain, why do you Jews say people must worship in Jerusalem?

Jesus replied, “Believe me, woman, an hour is coming when youll neither worship here nor in Jerusalem. You worship ignorantly, we worship knowledgeably, for salvation is from the Jews. Now is the hour when true worshippers, whom the Father seeks, will worship in spirit and truth, for God is Spirit.”

Feb 9 “I know that the Christ, Messiah, is coming to explain everything to us,” she replied.

4.8 “I1 (the one speaking to you) am the Christ Messiah,” declared Jesus.
