You Complete Me

by Pat Baxter

Bible text(s)

7A Samaritan woman came to draw some water, and Jesus said to her, “Give me a drink of water.” 8(His disciples had gone into town to buy food.)

9The woman answered, “You are a Jew, and I am a Samaritan — so how can you ask me for a drink?” (Jews will not use the same cups and bowls that Samaritans use.)

10Jesus answered, “If only you knew what God gives and who it is that is asking you for a drink, you would ask him, and he would give you life-giving water.”

11“Sir,” the woman said, “you haven't got a bucket, and the well is deep. Where would you get that life-giving water? 12It was our ancestor Jacob who gave us this well; he and his sons and his flocks all drank from it. You don't claim to be greater than Jacob, do you?”

13Jesus answered, “All those who drink this water will be thirsty again, 14but whoever drinks the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring which will provide him with life-giving water and give him eternal life.”

John 4:7-14GNBOpen in Bible reader

To say to God ‘You made me complete’ is to say: there is nothing more worthwhile than knowing a God who created and continues to create love in the world.

There is nothing more treasured than a Christ who loves me all over, who offers deserved and undeserved love wholeheartedly.

There is no more needed than a Spirit, Our Holy Spirit to guide us. Jesus says: everyone who drinks from the water that Jesus supplies, will never thirst.

Jesus’ gift shall be like a well of water, pure and refreshing that will transport us into love everlasting.
