3rd Sunday of Lent, A

Thirst for living water

John 4:5-42


What is it that distinguishes ordinary water with living water?

1. Ordinary water satisfies only for a time; living water satisfies us for all eternity.
2. Ordinary water satisfies a few; living water affects many and all.
3. Ordinary water is simply water for the body; living water is based on truth.  Eventually, it is Jesus that all generations benefit and have life.

In order to receive living water, we need to start our journey of encountering Jesus.

Encountering Jesus on a daily basis enables us to experience metanoia, a radical change of self to being like the Beloved, Jesus Christ himself.

Third, metanioa enables us to become evangelizers, changing the world for good and leading people to communion with God through Jesus in the Spirit.
