“Whoever drinks” –
aor-act-sub. Aorist tense: the water that I am going to give you, you just drink once and you have eternal life.
What is in your bucket?
On what does your happiness depend? The Christian way of life was designed so that your happiness must depend upon faith in the living word and then faith in the written word Bible doctrine.
“A well of water springing up”
-pres-mid-part-, delineating eternal security. Present tense: you will always have it. Middle voice: you are benefited by always having it. Participle: for every person.
The Lord will reveal to the sinner that He knows all about it and that His blood covers all of it.
You can worship on that mountain until you are blue in the face, but if you don’t even know what you are worshipping it’s meaningless.
“We know what we worship”
-OT scriptures. But folks like Nicodemus didn’t know what they were worshipping either, therefore, to the ignorant, it’s meaningless.
Salvation is from the Jews –
“I, Iesous Christos, come from the Jews. I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.”
True worshipers are born again through faith in Christ and therefore the first person of the Trinity is now their Father. They are not those who stand on a particular mountain or memorize OT scripture.
“In Spirit”- in the filling of the Holy Spirit; “and in truth” – in doctrine.
Saying to her, Jesus,
“I am, that speaks unto you.”
“The woman then left” – aorist tense, indicating a sudden departure. She is so excited and has actually accepted Christ as her saviour; she has believed on Him.
The grace of God can take any curse and turn it into a blessing.

In verse 13 we have the real water.
In verse 14 we have the water of eternal life.
“Everyone who drinks”
-pres-act-part, = people have to come back to the well day by day by day to survive.
