“The Spirit at the Well”

Text: John 4:1-26

Last week we saw that ‘to be born from above’ is to have relationship with the one who has descended from above - the Son of Man who is down here.  And this week we see that theme extended: God descends into the normal, the everyday.  God is at the well, breaking barriers, offering living water.  Like Jesus, we are led by the Spirit; and the Spirit will lead us in the normal, in the everyday structures of life.  As the church, we must resist being a “church above place”; and instead, be people who strive to be a “faithful presence”.
