PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Almighty and most merciful God, you know the thoughts of our hearts. We confess that
we have sinned against you and done evil in your sight. We have transgressed your holy
laws. We have disregarded your Word and Sacraments. Forgive us, O Lord. Give us grace
and power to put away all hurtful things, that, being delivered from the bondage of sin, we
may bring forth fruit worthy of repentance, and from henceforth may ever walk in your holy
ways; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
(WESLEYAN METHODIST CONFERENCE, ENGLAND, 20TH CENT., ALT.)
All offer prayers of confession in silence.
If we confess our sins, God who is faithful and just will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all
unrighteousness. (1 JOHN 1:9, ALT.)
Thanks be to God.

“But whoever drinks the water I give him
will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give
him will become in him a spring of water
welling up to eternal life."
SERMON LESSON
Date:__________________________
Service
John 4:1-15 (NIV)
1 Now Jesus learned that the Pharisees
had heard that he was gaining and
baptizing more disciples than John—
2 although in fact it was not Jesus who
baptized, but his disciples.
3 So he left Judea and went back once
more to Galilee.
4 Now he had to go through Samaria.
5 So he came to a town in Samaria called
Sychar, near the plot of ground Jacob had
given to his son Joseph.
6 Jacob's well was there, and Jesus, tired
as he was from the journey, sat down by
the well. It was about the sixth hour.
7 When a Samaritan woman came to draw
water, Jesus said to her, "Will you give me
a drink?"
8 (His disciples had gone into the town to
buy food.)
9 The Samaritan woman said to him, "You
are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman.
How can you ask me for a drink?" (For Jews
do not associate with Samaritans.)
10 Jesus answered her, "If you knew the
gift of God and who it is that asks you for a
drink, you would have asked him and he
would have given you living water."
11 "Sir," the woman said, "you have nothing
to draw with and the well is deep. Where
can you get this living water?
12 Are you greater than our father Jacob,
who gave us the well and drank from it
himself, as did also his sons and his flocks
and herds?"
13 Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks
this water will be thirsty again,
14 but whoever drinks the water I give him
will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him
will become in him a spring of water welling
up to eternal life."
15 The woman said to him, "Sir, give me
this water so that I won't get thirsty and
have to keep coming here to draw water."
FAMILY MINISTRY MINUTE
In Proverbs 19:11 we read, "A person’s
wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory
to overlook an offense." How many of us
subscribe to that biblical guidance? Our
families and our friendships would be much
stronger if we practiced the wisdom of
Proverbs 19:11 more often. Self-restraint,
perhaps the chief quality pointed to in this
verse delivers us to God's best for us.
