A lady came out of the city to get water and Jesus said to her, Give me a drink. He told her, If you knew who was asking you to give Him a drink you would ask Him to give you water that is always alive and you will never be thirsty again. She said to Jesus, Sir, Give me this water. Jesus told her, Go get your husband. The lady said, I don’t have a husband. Jesus said, That is true. You have had 5 husbands and the man you are with now isn’t your husband.
The time is coming when you will bow down to the Father in the Spirit and in the Truth. That’s what the Father wants to happen. God is Spirit and the ones who want Him must love Him in their heart in Spirit and in the Truth. The lady said, I know the promised One is coming and when He comes He will tell us everything. Jesus said to her, I am that One.
Jesus followers gave Him food to eat but He said, I have food to eat that you don’t know about. Then they wondered who gave Him food. Jesus told them, My food is to do what the One who sent me wants Me to do, and to finish it. You think in four months it will be time to go out and get the food growing in the field. I tell you, Look, the field is already full and ready. Whoever helps bring in the fruit will be paid and build things for his forever life. Some do one part and some another and all will be very happy.
Then Jesus went to Galilee and many more came to Him who saw the things He did at the party in Jerusalem. A good leader there had a son who was sick and went to Jesus to ask Him to get rid of the sickness and make his son all better because he was just about to die. Jesus told the man, You can go; your son is alive. And the boy was better from right then.
This happened on the rest day and the leaders of the Jews said, You aren’t supposed to carry your bed on the rest day! Who told you to get up and walk? When they found out it was Jesus, they tried to find a way hurt Jesus and kill Him. Jesus told them, My Father works today and I do too. So the leaders tried harder to get Him and kill Him.
A little boy was there and gave Jesus his five loaves of bread and two little fish. Jesus had the people sit down on the grass, more than 5,000 of them and then thanked His heavenly Father for the food and gave it to the followers to give to the people. The Lord God turned it into enough for all the people to eat and the had 12 baskets of food left over.
The followers went back to the sea and got in a boat to go back over the sea. When it was night Jesus went out on the sea, walking on the top of the water. When his followers in the ship saw Jesus they were scared. Jesus told them, Don’t be scared; it is Me. And they took Jesus into the boat with them.
Just like the Father who made everything sent Me and I live by Him, the ones who want Me lives in Me and I live inside Him. This is the bread that came down from heaven, not like the bread that came down in the wild lands. The people ate that bread but died. The ones who eat the bread from heaven will be alive with the best life forever.
Lots of the people went away from Jesus after this, but 12 ones who were with Him from the start stayed with Him. Jesus said to them, Will you go away too? Peter said, Where could we go? You have the words that will live forever. And we believe that you are the special promised One, the Son of the Living God.
