Daily Reading for May 27, 2019

John 4 (NCV)

The Pharisees heard that Jesus was making and baptizing more followers
than John, 2 although Jesus himself did not baptize people, but his
followers did. 3 Jesus knew that the Pharisees had heard about him, so
he left Judea and went back to Galilee. 4 But on the way he had to go
through the country of Samaria.

5 In Samaria Jesus came to the town called Sychar, which is near the
field Jacob gave to his son Joseph. 6 Jacob's well was there. Jesus
was tired from his long trip, so he sat down beside the well. It was
about twelve o'clock noon. 7 When a Samaritan woman came to the well
to get some water, Jesus said to her, "Please give me a drink." 
8 (This happened while Jesus' followers were in town buying some food.)

9 The woman said, "I am surprised that you ask me for a drink, since
you are a Jewish man and I am a Samaritan woman." (Jewish people are
not friends with Samaritans.)

10 Jesus said, "If you only knew the free gift of God and who it is
that is asking you for water, you would have asked him, and he would
have given you living water."

11 The woman said, "Sir, where will you get this living water? The
well is very deep, and you have nothing to get water with. 12 Are you
greater than Jacob, our father, who gave us this well and drank from
it himself along with his sons and flocks?"

13 Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty
again, 14 but whoever drinks the water I give will never be thirsty.
The water I give will become a spring of water gushing up inside that
person, giving eternal life."

15 The woman said to him, "Sir, give me this water so I will never be
thirsty again and will not have to come back here to get more water."

16 Jesus told her, "Go get your husband and come back here."

17 The woman answered, "I have no husband."

Jesus said to her, "You are right to say you have no husband. 18 Really
you have had five husbands, and the man you live with now is not your
husband. You told the truth."

19 The woman said, "Sir, I can see that you are a prophet. 20 Our
ancestors worshiped on this mountain, but you say that Jerusalem is
the place where people must worship."

21 Jesus said, "Believe me, woman. The time is coming when neither in
Jerusalem nor on this mountain will you actually worship the Father.
22 You Samaritans worship something you don't understand. We understand
what we worship, because salvation comes from the Jews. 23 The time is
coming when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and
truth, and that time is here already. You see, the Father too is
actively seeking such people to worship him. 24 God is spirit, and
those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth."

25 The woman said, "I know that the Messiah is coming." (Messiah is the
One called Christ.) "When the Messiah comes, he will explain everything
to us."

26 Then Jesus said, "I am he---I, the one talking to you."

27 Just then his followers came back from town and were surprised to
see him talking with a woman. But none of them asked, "What do you
want?" or "Why are you talking with her?"

28 Then the woman left her water jar and went back to town. She said to
the people, 29 "Come and see a man who told me everything I ever did.
Do you think he might be the Christ?" 30 So the people left the town
and went to see Jesus.

31 Meanwhile, his followers were begging him, "Teacher, eat something."

32 But Jesus answered, "I have food to eat that you know nothing

33 So the followers asked themselves, "Did somebody already bring
him food?"

34 Jesus said, "My food is to do what the One who sent me wants me to
do and to finish his work. 35 You have a saying, "Four more months till
harvest." But I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields ready
for harvest now. 36 Already, the one who harvests is being paid and is
gathering crops for eternal life. So the one who plants and the one who
harvests celebrate at the same time. 37 Here the saying is true, "One
person plants, and another harvests." 38 I sent you to harvest a crop
that you did not work on. Others did the work, and you get to finish
up their work."

39 Many of the Samaritans in that town believed in Jesus because of
what the woman said: "He told me everything I ever did." 40 When the
Samaritans came to Jesus, they begged him to stay with them, so he
stayed there two more days. 41 And many more believed because of the
things he said.

42 They said to the woman, "First we believed in Jesus because of what
you said, but now we believe because we heard him ourselves. We know
that this man really is the Savior of the world."

43 Two days later, Jesus left and went to Galilee. 44 (Jesus had said
before that a prophet is not respected in his own country.) 45 When
Jesus arrived in Galilee, the people there welcomed him. They had seen
all the things he did at the Passover Feast in Jerusalem, because they
had been there, too.

46 Jesus went again to visit Cana in Galilee where he had changed the
water into wine. One of the king's important officers lived in the
city of Capernaum, and his son was sick. 47 When he heard that Jesus
had come from Judea to Galilee, he went to Jesus and begged him to
come to Capernaum and heal his son, because his son was almost dead.
48 Jesus said to him, "You people must see signs and miracles before
you will believe in me."

49 The officer said, "Sir, come before my child dies."

50 Jesus answered, "Go. Your son will live."

The man believed what Jesus told him and went home. 51 On the way the
man's servants came and met him and told him, "Your son is alive."

52 The man asked, "What time did my son begin to get well?"

They answered, "Yesterday at one o'clock the fever left him."

53 The father knew that one o'clock was the exact time that Jesus had
said, "Your son will live." So the man and all the people who lived in
his house believed in Jesus.

54 That was the second miracle Jesus did after coming from Judea to
