Draw From Christ - The Source of True Fulfillment

Rev. Tetteh-Annor Larbi | March 8, 2024 | John 4:10-15



Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.” John 4:10 (NIV)



In our verses for today, the dialogue between Jesus and the Samaritan woman unfolds at the well, revealing spiritual truths that resonate deeply with our hearts today. He offers her living water, a metaphor for the eternal life and satisfaction that can only come from a relationship with Him. Jesus speaks of a water that quenches thirst permanently, transcending physical limitations and offering spiritual fulfilment. This invitation to "draw from Christ" is not merely a call to satisfy physical thirst but a deeper longing of the soul for spiritual nourishment and wholeness.


Just as the Samaritan woman initially misunderstood Jesus's offer, mistaking it for physical water, we too often seek satisfaction in temporary, worldly pleasures that ultimately leave us thirsty again. Yet Jesus patiently redirects her focus to the source of true fulfilment- Himself. Likewise, in our lives, Jesus invites us to draw from Him, to seek our satisfaction and sustenance in Him alone. He offers a wellspring of grace, mercy, and love that never runs dry, satisfying the deepest longings of our hearts.


Let us heed His invitation to draw from Him daily. Let us turn away from the fleeting pleasures of this world and instead seek the everlasting satisfaction found in Christ alone. May we drink deeply from the well of His presence, allowing His living water to refresh and renew us, and may we share this life-giving message with others, inviting them to experience the abundant life found only in Jesus.


FEET AND HANDS FOR THE MES satisfaction and fulfilment? Christ offers fulfilment that lasts forever. Seek Him.



Dear Lord Jesus, I seek to drink the water that you give. I ask you to give me a drink, to quench the thirst of my soul. May I find fulfilment in only you. For your dear name’s sake. Amen.





DAILY word study: LIVING WATER The phrase "living water" in John 4:10 (NIV) comes from the Greek words "ὕδωρ ζῶν" (hydōr zōn). ὕδωρ" (hydōr ) means "water" and "ζῶν" (zōn) is an adjective derived from the verb "ζάω" (zaō), which means "to live" or "to be alive." Therefore, "ζῶν" (zōn) means "living" or "alive." In Jewish and Samaritan traditions, "living water" refers to flowing water from springs or streams, symbolizing purity and vitality.

In this context of John 4:10, Jesus metaphorically uses "living water" to refer to the Holy Spirit and the spiritual life He brings. It represents the abundant, eternal life that believers receive when they come to faith in Christ.

Jesus offers this "living water" freely to the Samaritan woman, symbolizing His invitation to all people, regardless of their background or past, to partake in the spiritual blessings He provides.

Reflections: How does Jesus' offer of "living water" challenge us to seek spiritual refreshment and eternal life in Him, rather than in the temporary satisfactions of the world?
