Jesus said… ‘Those who drink of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty. The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life.’

(John 4:14, NRSV)

The story of John 4:5-13 in sonnet form
Then Jesus rested by dear Jacob’s well
Alone because the twelve were getting food
A woman came, a local, you could tell
He spoke to her (an action poorly viewed)
“Give me a drink,” sweetJesus, He did say
The woman questioned the remark He made
Enlightening the woman of His way,
Christ Jesus spoke of living, lasting aid
Intrigued, the woman wanted water new
The “living water” Jesus told her of
She didn’t fully grasp His point of view,
Which pointed to renewal from above
Our thirsts so frequently are earthly bound
We miss God’s grace and truth that’s so profound!
